Player feedback results in the return of PokerStars Caribbean Adventure

Over the past few years, the PokerStars brand decided to make a few changes. One such change was doing away with the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and replacing it with the PokerStars Championship Bahamas. After just one event, the brand has now decided to revert to the PCA after listening to customer feedback.

It is not uncommon for PokerStars to listen to their customers and make changes. Over the years, the brand has made changes in a number of ways based on what their players want. However, it is quite surprising to see PokerStars make this change back to the PCA after just retiring the brand.

According to PokerStars.com, an email was sent to the poker media by PokerStars Director of Corporate Communications, Eric Hollreiser. In the email, Hollreiser stated that after receiving feedback from players, the name will change back to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and online qualifiers will be held to send 400 players to the event when it takes place in January.

Surprisingly enough, the event in January 2018 will be the 15th anniversary of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. Additional changes will be made to the event based on player feedback such as reductions of admission fees to every event that has a buy-in of $10,000 or more. The fee will be capped at $300. For events that have levels of 19 minutes or less, the fee will be reduced by 50%. With these changes, around $300,000 will be saved by players based on estimates by PokerStars.

The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure will take place at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island, located in the Bahamas. Dates for the PCA are January 6th to the 14th. Nine days of tournament action will take place with cash games and activities on the schedule. The Main Event will be back with a $10,300 buy-in. The tournament will kick off with the Super High Roller tournament which will have a buy-in of $100,000. Later on, the schedule will feature additional High Roller events with smaller $50,000 and $25,000 buy-ins.
