World’s leading poker players head to St Kitts for Caribbean tournament

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts: Over 400 of the world’s leading poker players descend on St. Kitts this weekend for the 2005 Caribbean Poker Classic Tournament.

The tournament at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort and Royal Beach Casino not only allows players to soak up the sun, but take home the estimated prize pool of US$2 million during the November 26 to December 4 event.

A Royal Beach Casino official said Thursday night that 200 poker players will arrive here by charter from the United Kingdom on Friday. 150 players are coming from the United States and the rest from several countries around the world.

A Welcome Party will be held for the poker players on Friday night and the poker tournament starts on Saturday.

Poker is normally associated with millionaire playboys and the casinos of Las Vegas, but for a hairdresser from The Grange, in Scotland, Mum Lucia Barrett, is about to take on the world's leading poker players in a challenge which promises a £1.4 million prize to the winner.

According to Casino City Times, Barrett will jet off to the celebrity paradise island of St. Kitts for the Caribbean Poker Classic.

“The amateur card sharp, who owns a hairdressing salon in Ratcliffe Terrace, won her entry into the big game after becoming one of the growing army of women who play the traditionally male-dominated game of poker online.

Mrs. Barrett said: “Online poker is a fantastic, fun hobby and even though you always enter in the hope of winning I never dreamt I would get the ticket to St. Kitts.”

“Even if I get knocked out of the tournament immediately, I will still be able to soak up the sunshine. Everyone says St. Kitts is an absolute paradise,” she is quoted as saying.
