PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Gets Underway

Like a long-awaited dream vacation, the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) got underway Monday as nearly every member of Team PokerStars Pro, as well as hundreds of online poker qualifiers and direct buy-in participants took to the tables at the Bahamas’ Atlantis Resort and Casino.

A lot of familiar faces – or at least familiar usernames to online poker fans, frequent forum posters and bloggers – showed up for the first day of PCA action. Among them are Danny “THE_D_RY” Ryan, Shaun “shaundeeb” Deeb, John “apestyles” Van Fleet, John “PearlJammer” Turner, Jimmy “gobboboy” Fricke and Adam “ajunglen” Junglen.

Even PokerStars Pro Barry Greenstein took to the tables, though his interest seemed more drawn by the newspaper on his lap than the cards at the table. Sorel Mizzi was seated comfortably, more so than most, as he took advantage of one of the on-hand massage therapists.

A few current Team PokerStars Pros who fall into the category of “past WSOP Champions” can also be found corralled in the PCA Ballroom: Joe Hachem (2005), Greg Raymer (2004), Chris Moneymaker (2003) and Tom McEvoy (1983).

It goes without saying that this year’s PokerStars Caribbean Adventure has grown much larger than that of recent years, enough so to already have drawn the label of the “biggest live poker tournament outside the United States”.

With the elated shouting of Daniel Negreanu – “Shuffle up and deal!” – the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure has begun.
