Aruba is an island that is part of the Caribbeans, and its nature is simply breathtaking. What is more important about this area is that it has a long and fruitful history when it comes to poker.
The World Series of Poker Circuit will come to the island for an event beginning on Nov. 14 and lasting until Nov. 23. Players from all around the globe will travel to The Casino Aruba, which is part of the Hilton Caribbean Resort, and test their skills and luck against other poker lovers.
The tournament will award a total of 10 rings, which is the most prestigious accolade poker players can receive when they take part in WSOPC. All rings are awarded to event winners, meaning WSOPC Aruba will feature 10 events. The lowest buy-in in the tournament is $300, and the highest is $1,700, which is the amount of money you need to enroll in the World Series of Poker Circuit Aruba Main Event.
Speaking of the main event, there will be a guaranteed prize pool of $250,000 and a total of two starting flights. The winner of the main event will not only receive the lion’s share of the prize pool (which could increase if a lot of players apply) but will also win a seat at the WSOP Global Casino Championship, which is valued at $10,000.
The festival will also feature satellite events for the Main Event, which start at as low as $65.
The tournament will also feature a leaderboard where players with the most success across all events will be ranked. The player who ends up in first place after all events are concluded will also receive a $10,000 WSOP Global Casino Championship seat.
All events that include rings as awards count toward the leaderboard, but you will have to check with the venue in order to find out more about the points formula and how players are ranked.
Apart from the main event, there will be plenty of other interesting events. The first one, which will open the tournament, is the $300 NL Hold ’em Double Stack. Moreover, you can join the $400 NL Hold ’em or $300 NL Hold ’em Turbo on Nov. 16. Other tournaments worth considering include $300 NL Hold ’em 8-Max and $400 NL Hold ’em Monster Stack.
Poker Director of the World Series, Gregory Chochon, stated that Aruba was really exciting in November and featured a professional poker team in the Casino Aruba that was ready to provide players with a “fun and friendly atmosphere.” Even if you are eliminated, you will not be able to resist the beautiful sand, sun, and sea that will make you stay a couple of days longer.
Therefore, if you like exotic places and you love playing poker, then this is a Circuit stop that you should definitely consider following or even joining if you are a poker player. There will be a lot of great poker action, especially during the main event, which will award the most successful players with very lucrative cash prizes and a gold ring.
