Coming Soon… Win a Platinum Pass to the 2023 edition of the PSPC

PokerStars Players NL Hold’em Championship (PSPC) is back. And it’s going to be epic. Expect a bigger and better edition of the richest $25,000 buy-in event in poker history.

Starting January 30, we head back to The Bahamas to find our second Champion, during a special edition of the popular PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) running from January 22 to February 3.

Join more than 400 Platinum Pass worldwide winners at the beautiful Baha Mar Resort in Nassau, Bahamas where the next winner of the one of the most prestigious live events in the world will be crowned.
