First Day in Punta Cana All We Did Was...Sweat!

Last week I was lucky enough to travel to the Caribbean with five online poker players that won their way to the CPT Punta Cana Main Event by winning online satellite tournaments at Intertops Poker or Juicy Stakes Poker. In my first video report I interviewed Caribbean Poker Tour organizer Leon Groenewoud to find out what we could expect in Punta Cana.

When I got to the Republica Dominicana it was 33 degrees and 94% humidity and stayed that way all week. (Well, at night it dropped to 29 degrees). For me and the guys on the Living the Dream Team (who were also arriving from northern climates in Austria, England, Chicago and Pittsburgh) it was quite a (pleasant) shock to the system.

Waiting for the tournaments to begin, pretty much all we did the first day was sweat! Looking for Daniel and waiting for Derek, Phil and Neal to arrive, Steve gives his first impression of Dominican Republic, the Hard Rock Casino and the CPT in my second Living the Dream video:
