Caribbean Poker Classic Details
The Caribbean Poker Classic is traditionally held at the end of November, beginning of December each year, and since 2005 the venue has been the elegant Casino Royal at the St Kitts Marriott Resort in Frigate Bay.

The tournament takes place over seven days, and the schedule normally follows a fixed plan each year:
Day One – An official welcome to all the players takes place in the morning, followed by a Supersatellite to the main event.
Day Two – Play generally starts after lunch at about 2pm with No Limit Hold Em, followed by the invitational event, Champion of Champions. In the evening there will be another Supersatellite to the main event. The Champion of Champions is by invitation only and is open to all the first place winners of the Weekly Poker Champions
Day Three – The day starts in the afternoon with No Limit Hold Em followed by a Supersatellite to the Main Event
Day Four – A repeat of day Three – No Limit Hold Em and a Supersatellite to the Main Event
Day Five – Play begins at high noon with the Main Event Day 1
Day six – Again a noon start with the Main Event Day 2, followed by No Limit Hold Em in the evening
Day Seven – The Main Event Final kicks off after lunch at 2pm. At the same time a No Limit Hold Em takes place followed by a farewell pub crawl.
Over the seven days there is non stop action and games are on a supply demand basis. The following games are generally the most popular:
- Cash games from about $2 up in Hold Em Limit, Pot Limit and No Limit
