Betfair Poker player AChipAndNoHair has become the latest player to satellite himself to the Caribbean to take part in the $500,000 GTD Punta Cana Poker Classic Main Event in November.
Betfair's Alex Kaczmarek caught up with the AChipAndNoHair to ask him about how he came about winning the exclusive package and who he would like to meet there for a pint.
How did you qualify for the Caribbean Experience?
I qualified through the Betfair Caribbean experience satellites where I bought in directly to the €100 super satellite on Sunday evening. There was a 21 strong field to try and overcome and eventually after 4 hours and a very tough heads up battle I took down the €5000 package. I would definitely recommend that all Betfair players attempt the Caribbean Experience satellites as you have a chance to turn €1 to winning a $500,000 GTD live tournament in Punta Cana!
How did you feel when you won the package?
I was obviously very happy with the result but it didn't really sink in until I received an email at work the next day saying "Congratulations you're joining Team Betfair in the Caribbean!" Wasn't a bad email to receive on a Monday morning.
Is this a dream come true?
In all honesty I think the girlfriend is more excited than me because she knows she's getting a free holiday. However the dream is to take down the $500,000 Main Event so if that happens it most definitely will be a dream come true.
Why do you play with Betfair and Betfair Poker?
I use Betfair for most of my sports betting due to the fact they offer very good odds on all sporting events. In my opinion Betfair Poker offers one of the best blind structures for online poker and also provides affordable satellites into some fantastic events such as the Caribbean Experience.
I'm proud to be representing Betfair in the Punta Cana Classic Main Event and I'm looking forward to enjoying a pint of the Dominican Republic's finest beer with the other qualifiers.
