Intertops Poker Hosts Punta Cana Poker Classic Satellites

Punta Cana Poker Classic at IntertopsThe Punta Cana Poker Classic is a $500,000 live event that runs in the Dominican Republic, and you can win a $5,000 prize package at Intertops.

If you want a shot at a $5,000 prize package for the $500,000 Punta Cana Poker Classic, [geolink href=””]Intertops Poker[/geolink] has the satellites you need right now.

Satellite tournaments were a really smart invention that allows players a chance to get into events that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford. The premise is very simple: Instead of having cash prizes for a poker tournament, the prizes are seats to a larger event. That’s exactly what will be happening at Intertops Poker over the next several weeks for the Punta Cana Poker Classic, an event in the Dominican Republic that runs from October 25 through October 31.

The $5,000 Prize Packages

The packages themselves from Intertops Poker contain your buy-in and everything else that you would need to enjoy a tropical vacation. You’ll get your main event buy-in worth $1,650 to the $500,000 guaranteed event, and you’ll also get six nights stay at the five-star hotel Melia The Level for two. An extra $500 in travel expenses is also included along with a night out with the staff from Intertops and plenty of Intertops gear. Everything that you would need to thoroughly enjoy the tournament happens to be included in this great package, and it’s an awesome way to get into this event.

Satellite Levels

There are a few different levels for this set of satellites. The first level is what they’re calling the Step 1, and it has a very low buy-in with events running daily from July 4 through July 9 at 11 am, 2 pm, 4 pm, 6 pm and 8 pm. These will get you entries to the Step 2 satellites that also run daily but at only 10 pm. Finally, there is a last chance satellite running on July 10 at 7 pm, and the $500,000 Punta Cana Satellite Final runs on July 10 at 9 pm, and this effectively acts as the third step in the satellite series.

Terms and Conditions

You’ll find that there are a few key terms and conditions that you’ll want to know about before you get in on the action.

  • Players are responsible for their own travel to the event, though they are given $500 in advance
  • Players must wear Intertops Poker gear during their play at the live event
  • A minimum of one $5,000 prize package will be given away in the Finals on July 10 at 9 pm, regardless of the number of entries
  • You cannot cash this prize package out or transfer it to anyone (it’s a “must-play” prize)

Aside from this, all you really need to do is show up and be one of the lucky players to nail a satellite victory. This is a pretty favorable set of satellites that are designed to give players at all different levels of play and stakes a chance to get in on the action with this huge tournament event.

Perfect for Recreational Players

Something really cool about how these prize packages have been set up is that they’re perfect for recreational players. The schedule is designed in a way to give you a few extra days of time in the Dominican Republic to enjoy everything they have to offer as a tourist, and it can very easily become a dream vacation in the process. You don’t have to be a super serious, full-time poker tournament grinder to take advantage of this deal, and that’s awesome for players who don’t play as a profession.
