Americas Cardroom Players Off to a Great Start at the Punta Cana Poker Classic — Second Episode of Web VIdeo Series Now Online

October 27, 2016 (Press Release) – The second episode of Living the Dream: Punta Cana Poker Classic 2016, sponsored by Americas Cardroom, is now online. The web video series follows players from the trusted US online poker room competing in the $500K Punta Cana Poker Classic. This episode features interviews with players on break during the Main Event Day 1a, who all agree that this year’s move from the Hard Rock to the Melia Tropicale was a good idea.

“I never thought we could do better than the Hard Rock, but this place is really nice,” said Steven Schillenberg, who’s been playing this event for eight or nine years, since it began in Costa Rica.

“The competition’s great. Great players!” he said. “To win this, I’m going to have to get lucky on the river – at least twice. And more pocket aces would be good – get my money in, pre-flop.”

“I’ve been coming here for about seven years now. You can’t beat it!” said Steve Lets, another Americas Cardroom player who’s been coming to this event for many years. “The new game that they have, the 2.0, it’s actually really, really good. I’m really getting into it! I think the more you play it you’ll enjoy it even more.

“Living the Dream: Punta Cana Poker Classic 2016” videos will be available only on the Americas Cardroom poker news blog beginning October 27th. Episode 2, Better Than the Hard Rock, is now online.
