Forget grinding the tables in the middle of the Vegas desert, only seeing the inside of an air-conditioned hotel ballroom for 12 straight hours. The Punta Cana Poker Classic takes place on the footsteps of a gorgeous tropical beach with pristine water, soft sand, and purveyors of coconut cocktails. Wake up and dive into the ocean, relax on the beach before the first shuffle up & deal, and build sandcastles to celebrate your victory with pocket Kings. The beach is yours. Enjoy it.
