Boris Becker Serving Up a Caribbean Battle of Poker!    Jan 05, 2009

Boris Becker


As part of the upcoming PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) to be held at the Atlantis Paradise Island Casino in Nassau in the Bahamas, tennis celebrity Boris Becker will be playing poker against a series of four qualifiers in the PCA’s Battleship Poker event.

In this exciting event, which has been run for the past three years, the qualifiers will play heads up with former Wimbledon champion Becker, each on a laptop of their own. Although they are playing face to face, there is no dealer involved, and they play online.

The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure features the increasingly accepted Battleship Poker format to the appreciation of interested poker aficionados everywhere. Here the advantages of quick, online style gaming as well as the edge offered by the availability of live visual tells make the game very interesting and explain its popularity. As Becker says, "Battleship poker gives you all the fast play luxuries of online poker, but also allows you to look your opponent in the eye. It's an exciting game to play and I'm really looking forward to competing against these players."

In the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure 2009 Battleship Poker event, Boris Becker will play against Michel Dion, Itsik Oknin, Joshua Miloy and Keith Anderson. So the qualifiers will get a chance to win a seat to the $10,000 Main Event PokerStars Caribbean Adventure 2009 to be held between January 5 and 9, 2009. The Main Event of the PCA 2009 has a $10,000 buy-in and will offer some fascinating poker with stiff competition among a host of players from around the world, for generous rewards and fame in the world of poker.

Keith Anderson, from Quebec, is 23 years old, and he carved a way to this opportunity by winning in several free ‘Battle Boris’ tournaments. ‘Baron von Slam’ Becker’s other opponents will include two other Canadians – Michel Dion is also from Quebec, and Itsik Oknin is from Ottawa. Joshua Miloy is from Oley, PA. These exciting games are sure to draw plenty of crowds and poker fans should have a good time watching in this series as tennis ace Boris Becker plays a different game.

This is one of the numerous tournaments that form the suite of events at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure 2009.
