The Winning Poker Network are gearing up for their latest Cage Live jaunt to Costa Rica, with online players having the chance to join the unique cash game tournament atmosphere in San Jose…

Every couple of months, the WPN cast and crew head off for a weekend of high-stakes poker and partying at the Taormina Hotel, appealing to those who love live-based events as a way to break up the online grind.

To make that the San Jose soiree an affordable opportunity for everyone, the network’s sites, of which Americas CardRoom – ACR - is the biggest and best-known, run Sunday evening satellites, with lucrative packages to Cage Live up for grabs.

The simplest way to grab your Costa Rica seat is to enter the $55 buy-in Beast and Sit & Crush Cage Live satellite, running every Sunday at 6pm ET.

The second route is via The Beast and Sit & Crush leaderboards, and here’s what you’ll be winning...

WPN Cage Live $8,340 package:

  • $5,000 + $250 Buy-in to Cage Live Event
  • $800 airfare
  • $1,000 spending Cash
  • $340 for Cash Games
  • Up to 3 nights’ accommodation at the Taormina Casino and Hotel in San Jose, Costa Rica
  • Airport Transportation

 Once you’re there, you’ll also get the chance to visit the WPN offices for a behind-the-scenes look at how the biggest US-facing network goes about things, and there will be plenty of social events to round out a fantastic weekend.

As for the cash-game tournament format of Cage Live, here is how that works if it’s a new concept to you…

  • The $5,250 buy-in sees you seated with 5,000 in chips, each chip valued at $1.
  • Each Cage Live tournament runs for 12 hours divided up into four separate three-hour blind levels.
  • It's a two-day event, six hours each day, with a 30-minute break after the first level on both days.
  • The winner is whoever has accumulated most chips when the clock runs out.  

It’s a chance to mix it with the best of the networks players and have a wild time in Costa Rica while doing it, so check out the satellite schedule and grab yourself a Cage Live seat!
