Bernard Lee signs with Blaycation, offers poker bucket list experience

27 March 2015

BOSTON, Mass. -- (PRESS RELEASE) -— Professional poker player and media personality Bernard Lee has become the official spokesperson of Blaycation, a specialty travel company that combines individuals’ bucket lists with vacations that offer a unique interactive experience.

The company’s first scheduled poker experience will run from Wednesday May 27th thru Monday, June 1st, centered around the World Series of Poker’s Colossus bracelet event in Las Vegas with Lee as the host.

"We chose Bernard Lee as our spokesperson because of his professionalism, likability factor, teaching ability, and poker experience as a player and a member of the poker media. Our clients will benefit from having Bernard at their side to provide insight and guidance,” said Blaycation owner and Chief Vacation Officer Mark Stiles, who founded the company following his own Bucket List vacation to the 2012 WSOP.

“The first time I played at the WSOP, I was a deer in the headlights. I only wish I had someone with Bernard’s experience with me to make me feel more comfortable,” Stiles said. “Fortunately I ended up in 16th place, but who knows where I would have finished with Bernard’s advice?”

Blaycation’s initial poker package, called the WSOP Colossus poker experience, features entry into the highly anticipated WSOP’s Colossus bracelet event, which boasts a $5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool and is held at the Rio All-Suite Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. Participants will also enjoy a fun-filled experience under the watchful eye of Lee, who will also offer a private teaching seminar, WSOP tour and personal mentoring.

“I’m excited to partner with Blaycation and host this unique vacation opportunity for poker enthusiasts,” Lee said. “Having played in poker tournaments worldwide since 2004, I am looking forward to share my poker knowledge with Blaycation participants. I know that taking a trip with Blaycation will create memories for a lifetime.”

Blaycation is offering their initial WSOP package at a special introductory price of $1,975 per person, double occupancy ($2,375 per person, single occupancy) if you register by April 27, 2015. The price includes entrance into the WSOP Colossus bracelet event, hotel accommodations, a welcome dinner and cocktails, pre-tournament strategy breakfast, private training seminar, tour of the WSOP, poker memory gift, additional poker pro appearances and private concierge service. Additional Blaycation poker packages are being scheduled, and will be announced later this year.

“If you have ever dreamed of entering a poker tournament like the WSOP, this is the perfect opportunity to fulfill your dreams. Our goal is to provide the personalized experience participants deserve, while getting a behind-the-scenes look at a prestigious poker tournament. The unforgettable experience will keep participants coming back to the WSOP year after year,” Lee said. “I look forward to meeting many new faces during Blaycation’s WSOP Colossus poker experience.”
