We are sad to announce that the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC) will not go ahead this year. However, we are excitedly planning ahead to a later date with the aim to truly celebrate being back with our community with a bang when the time is right.
Due to the ongoing uncertainty, at this time, we cannot provide exact dates for when the PSPC will take place but will keep everyone informed with updates when we have them.
We know that this further news will come as a disappointment to many hoping the PSPC would take place this year, but our priority is the safety and good health of all our players and staff, as well as the communities that host such large events.
We are committed to running the PSPC at Casino Barcelona and making it a true celebration of poker, and to ensure everyone has the best experience we need to have a safe, healthy and comfortable environment. This event is one of a kind, therefore we don’t want to settle for anything less than an amazing experience for those currently with a Platinum Pass, and those yet to win one. And we truly can’t wait to see all our players, and run this event as it should be.
This postponement will not affect any ongoing Platinum Pass promotions and we will continue to award Platinum Passes with 400 in total of our players set to turn their Platinum Pass into what we intend to be an exceptional experience. We look forward to highlighting our Platinum Pass winners, sharing their amazing stories and creating that brilliant community of winners that we had in our inaugural event. Our Platinum Pass winners are a very special community and we will continue to plan activities and surprises in the run-up to the event, albeit a longer than expected lead time. We promise it will be worth the wait.
We are excited to make the PSPC even bigger and better than our inaugural event in the Bahamas in January 2019. It made history as the richest and biggest $25,000 buy-in poker tournament and awarded more than $26.4 million to 181 players, with 43 of those players Platinum Pass winners. The final table produced six millionaires and a multi-millionaire in a Platinum Pass winner Ramon Colillas who beat the massive field to take home the $5.1 million first-place prize.
Our aim is once again to create a history-making poker event with our community at the heart of it. Until then, stay safe and play responsibly. We’ll see you soon!
