Cancellation Policies – Punta Cana Poker Classic

The cancellation policies below apply to packages purchased or won through the Punta Cana Poker Classic organization or the LPS organization and their affiliated sites.

Any packages that are won through satellites (online or live) must be used and hold no cash value. These packages can be sold or transferred in case they cannot be used. Won packages must be used on the event they specifically state unless otherwise stated.

Punta Cana Poker Classic allows the voiding of package purchases within 24 hours of being purchased and up to 90 days before the event takes place with no penalty.

Cancellations done within less than 90 days prior to the event will incur in the following fees:

Change/Cancel Fee Amounts – Effective September, 2013

  • Changes and cancellations made between 29 and 0 days prior to the event: 100% penalty
  • Changes and cancellations made between 59 – 30 days prior to the event: 50% penalty
  • Changes and cancellations made between 89 – 60 days prior to the event: 20% penalty
  • Changes and cancellations made 90 or more days prior to the event: no penalty

Refunds for canceled package purchases will be made to the poker account. In case the person does not have an account, one will be created in the site that suits the person the best according to location. Once the funds have been credited to the poker account, the customer may request a withdrawal with the payment methods offered.

Packages that allow changes to be used on other events require a confirmation on the event they will be used on, at least 10 days prior to the tournament taking place. In the event that a confirmation has not been received by the time the Late Registration period ends, the event’s seat and package will be voided.

Packages can be transferred to another person; changes can be performed at the latest 7 days before the event takes place. Both parties need to email informing on the change that has to be performed. Confirmation on the change will be sent to both parties. Punta Cana Poker Classic is not responsible for any monetary agreements reached between the parties. We will, however, make sure that player to player transfers made as part of the agreement reach the package holder simultaneously as the package is transferred.


In the event that a customer is requesting a refund due to them or a family member being seriously ill, Punta Cana Poker Classic’s policy is that all packages are “must play”. Cancellations will incur on the fees stated below and won packages may be transferred to another person.

Event Cancellation

If one of our events has to be cancelled due to circumstances out of our control, all purchased packages will be refunded with no penalties.

Won packages will offer the option to be used at another one of our upcoming live events as they hold no cash value.

In case the seat or package has a higher value than the one that it will be used for in the future, all residual money will be credited to the player’s poker account. If the player does not have one, one will be created in the site that best suits the player based on his place of residence.

  • Use the value of the package (total value minus cash awarded for travel expenses) as buyins to side events or re-entries into the Main Tournament.

*In case of a left over balance, of 40% or less of the initial amount, this amount will be given to the player in cash once all events have closed registration.
