With the Christmas lull in poker tournaments coming to an emphatic end in January with a merry go round of tournaments on offer, probably the most anticipated is going to be the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure series.
With so many visitors expected on the Paradise Island during the tournament, it is logical to expect there to be thousands upon thousands of pictures taken throughout the duration. In fact it is expected that there will be more than 10k photos taken just by the people who will be attending the PCA’s.
Though many of the photos that will be taken will be of the blurry and out of focus kind, PokerStars have decided to reward the best photo with a seat at one of the PCA side events. The seat will be worth $1,000 and will obviously offer the winner the chance to not only play against some of the world’s best poker players, but also a chance at winning a sizable amount of cash.
So if you are either going to the PCA to witness or take part in some events, or are just going to be on Paradise Island at the time of the tournament, you may well want to take part in this competition. All you need is a Smartphone that has the popular Instagram app installed and you are ready to take part.
Once there, just look for the best photo opportunities that best describe the whole vibe that the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is famous for.
This is a win only situation; as if you were going to be there you were most likely going to be taking photos anyway, so now you can get rewarded for them. Once the pictures have been taken, there will be PokerStars Team Pros judging each photo and deciding on an eventual winner.
For the four days between the 7th and 11th of January, the team will decide on which ten pictures taken from Instagram will go into the final. On the final day they will then pick the eventual winner and award the picture taker with that seat in a $1k side event.
To make sure that your photos get noticed on Instagram, you will have to make sure that you add some specific hash tags and make a quick mention of @PokerStars. The hash tags in question are #PhotoPimpOff and a more obvious #PCA10.
With those tags, it will make the photos eligible for the competition, without them and you are unfortunately winning nothing. So good luck and happy snapping!
