partypoker LIVE has organised a tournament in partnership with the The Baha Mar Casino to raise funds for victims of hurricane Dorian. The severe weather wreaked havoc through Grand Bahama and the Abacos islands.

On Sunday, October 13, 2019 on the partypoker global server, there will be a special $100 ‘Hurricane Dorian Online Charity Tournament’ with eight packages available for the Caribbean Poker Party held annually by partypoker LIVE.

The prizes are as follows:

  • 1st – 3rd place: $16,000 Main Event package. This includes Caribbean Poker Party Main Event buy-in ($10,300), 9 nights’ stay at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar for two people, $1,400 room credit plus $2,000 for expenses.
  • 4th – 8th place: $6,000 ‘lite’ package. This includes Caribbean Poker Party Mini Main Event buy in ($1,100), 9 nights’ stay at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar for two people, $600 room credit plus $2,000 for expenses.

All of the buy-ins will go towards a special charity set up to assist victims of the great tragedy. This is the worst disaster from adverse weather that the Bahamas has ever seen in its history. There have already been 53 confirmed deaths and 1,300 people are still missing following the 300 km/h winds.


The Caribbean Poker Party is set to take place at the Baha Mar Casino between November 15 - 24 2019. This year will see the debut of the $250,000 Super High Roller Bowl as well as favourites such as the $25,500 Super High Roller, the $10,300 High Roller, and of course the $10,300 ‘MILLIONS World’ Main Event

partypoker chairman Mike Sexton said: 

“I encourage everybody to try and participate in partypoker’s Hurricane Dorian initiative, which is a great way to help support all those affected by the tragedy. I look forward to seeing all the online tournament winners plus many more in The Bahamas for another amazing festival of poker this November!”

For those of you who can’t play to win one of these amazing packages and support the disaster victims, partypoker LIVE has set up a dedicated JustGiving page on behalf of the American Red Cross's Hurricane Dorian Appeal. The goal is $50,000 and they are 5% of the way there already. Anybody interested in donating can do so through this link here.
