On August 14, Bovada Poker announced that we would be offering a $6K prize package to the Punta Cana Poker Classic through social media. To win the contest you had to submit a video or written audition telling us why you should be picked to rep Team Bovada on the beach and at the tables in the beautiful Dominican Republic. One month has passed and after receiving many great submissions we have finally chosen a winner.
It was extremely hard to come to a decision as there were so many great auditions and we know that all the contestants worked hard to get as many likes and comments on their posts as possible. After much deliberation, and pouring over countless videos and essays – we have chosen Brad Pierce as our winner!
Brad submitted a hilarious video where he showed off his high-fiving skills and it looks like he will be high-fiving the locals in sunny Punta Cana. Congratulations Brad, you did a great job!
We’d like to thank everyone who participated and because we were so impressed with all the submissions, we’ve decided to award some of our runner-ups as well. The final satellite to the Punta Cana Poker Classic takes place this Sunday at 4:35 PM ET on Bovada Poker, and we’re giving out free $325 satellite entries to give some of our talented contestants one more chance to go poolside at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Bryan Larson showed us why he is a great father and a great director, as he managed to get some awesome acting performances out of his two kids. Congrats Bryan, you receive a $325 ticket to this Sunday’s satellite. Good luck!
Jami Lafay Daniels submitted a great written submission showing us how to stay positive and fun-loving even through difficult times. Good luck on Sunday, Jami, with your free $325 ticket. Take it down.
Eddie Szumuski did his best to create his own Bovada gear and had us all laughing with the hilarious clips of his Jackass-style buffoonery. We hope you don’t trip over any fences on the way to the final table in Sunday’s satellite tournament.
Terence Cernuto did his best politician impression and wowed us with a funny video telling us why he is the best person to tell the world about Bovada Poker. Hopefully this Sunday you’ll do well at the polls and find yourself with one of five guaranteed $6,000 Punta Cana Poker Classic Prize Packages.
We have to give a special shout-out to John Gm Nguyen who was able to get over 250 likes and 150 comments for his video. Make sure you don’t take too many Cognac shots before Sunday’s satellite, good luck!
There were so many great, funny and touching submissions that we want to say thank you to everyone who participated with a special freeroll. Next Saturday, September 22 we will hold a freeroll tournament awarding twenty $162 entries to the weekly $100K Guaranteed tournament. If you have auditioned, make sure you send your account number and a link to your submission to auditions@Bovada.Lv to get the ticket in your account.
