http://www.pokerstar...s-s-077097.html2011 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure PokerStars Womenby Rebekah Mercer on December 30, 2010 1:10 PMPCA-2010-thumbnail.jpgAs 2011 approaches most people that I know are making plans to celebrate with a bottle of champagne and maybe a party with friends. Many of them are also trying to locate a last minute designated driver for the evening so they can enjoy a few drinks before heading back to work the Monday after.A select group of poker players from around the world however, are looking forward to a different kind of party, one that's a bit more luxurious. They either had a few thousand to spare to pay their entry to this premier event or won it by playing on PokerStars. And for those players lucky enough to attend, it will be the New Year's party of the year. At this party, no designated driver is necessary, since everything is within walking distance at one of the most luxurious resorts in the world--The Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.Instead of a designated driver they will need a few things however; namely flip flops, suntan lotion and a big bag of money to take home the money they are looking to win at the tournament.Two of the people who will be making that trek are winners of a Luxury Ladies Poker Event package that they won playing satellites on PokerStars. They will be enjoying five days of what can only be described as a poker player's dream vacation. They are looking forward to their entry into a $1k buy-in ladies tournament, expense money for airfare, four nights at the Atlantis, a poker boot camp hosted by Vanessa Rousso, and a holistic mind/body beach camp to get their mental game focused on bringing home the loot when it's all over. The package is worth $3,480, and the two ladies profiled here won it for pennies on the dollar.Rose G, a nurse from Hamilton, Ontario, will be going to the Bahamas as a result of playing a $10 rebuy on PokerStars (total investment of $30). The rebuy got her into the final where she won her seat against 70 other players. She says that she was "in total shock" when she won and when she recovered a bit, she did some "bragging" because she was so proud. It took a week or two for her to come back to earth.She says she has never been to Atlantis and is looking forward to seeing all the things Atlantis has to offer. Besides the tournament, she is looking forward to meeting some of the women from the PokerStars Women's League. She says, "I have made so many friends from the league and we keep in touch via emails." She says she is also looking forward to the boot camp by Vanessa Rousso. Rose says the biggest live tournament she has played prior to this was a $300 buy-in, so she plans to play some bigger tournaments soon as a warm-up to the PCA.How will she handle the pros she's bound to run up against at the tournament? "With class, professionalism, and respect. I would treat them as if they were any other poker player." To help out on that end, she says she has been preparing by watching videos and studying their "moves and style of play." She says that if she wins she would "play more poker, which is what I enjoy doing." She would plan to play more events at the WSOP and possibly an NAPT event.
