The $2,200 buy-in, $200,000 Guarantee Main Event is the premier tournament of the tour, and players have been qualifying for the event all season long.
“The PPC Poker Tour will send its most players to Aruba this year by far. It’s crazy to think 80-90 players will have won PPC Aruba Main Event packages from our stops before we land in Aruba,” said Sandy Swartzbaugh, Commissioner of the PPC. “Launching the $200,000 Main Event with over $150,000 in prize pool is very exciting. Mix in the allure of Aruba and we are looking forward to our biggest field yet. This year will be one crazy ‘poker-cation.’”

Tournament organizers are expecting between 200-250 players for the Main Event, which is considerably more than 2012’s 31 players and 2013’s 88. Those who make the trip to Aruba* will be able to attend a Gusto VIP Party on October 15 hosted by Serock.
