Say hello to the newly launched PokerStars Players No-Limit Championship a.k.a. PSPC to commence in the Bahamas in 2019. And welcome back to the mix to the EPT, LAPT, and APPT. The regional tournament series got shelved after the introduction of the PokerStars Championship brand. But the old-school tours will return! The PCA returns in January 2018 and the other tours will soon recapture its old glory, especially the EPT. It's been a busy day of announcements for PokerStars and they also began pushing a themed-hashtag #AreYouPlaying.

It's a Festivus miracle! It has been a busy day in Prague! The PokerStars Championship Prague is in full swing and while most of the international poker press was gathered to cover the Prague Main Event, PokerStars capitalized on the opportunity to announce their newest brain child… PokerStars Players No-Limit Championship. And if you are someone who is deeply sentimental, then you're in for a treat! PokerStars also announced the return of their old-school regional tours. Yes, welcome back… EPT, LAPT, and APPT. Yup, the European Poker Tour, Latin America Poker Tour, and Asia Pacific Poker Tour will be re-established in the upcoming year.

Earlier today, Daniel Negreanu made a special announcement in Prague. PokerStars is launching the PokerStars Players No-Limit Championship a.k.a. the PSPC. The first-ever PSPC will take place in the Bahamas in January 2019. The entire 2018 calendar year will give PokerStars players an opportunity to win a seat into this special $25K freezeout. The PSPC will be the cumulation of a year-long feeder system that includes both online and live promotions. In addition to over $8 million worth of free packages awarded in 2018, PokerStars will be adding another cool million to the prize pool. Yeah, the winner of the first-ever PSPC will also get an addition $1 million.

PokerStars is dubbing this event as “one tournament for all.”

According to PokerStars Blog, "Throughout the next 12 months, PokerStars will be giving away more than 300 Players Championship packages, known as Platinum Passes, at PokerStars live tours around the world, but also online in tournaments, cash games, promotions, and via the Stars Rewards loyalty program."

Doesn't matter if you're a noob, jaded vet, shark, or total donk... PokerStars will be giving away 300 Platinum Passes. And you have a shot at winning these online and in live events. Platinum Passes have an approximate value of $30K, which includes the $25K buy-in to the PSPC and a redonk expensive room at Atlantis in the Bahamas.

Danny Boy Kid Poker added his two cents: "This tournament is exactly what it's called - the Players Championship. This is going to be an incredible experience for everyone, no matter their skill level, has a chance to win a Platinum Pass."

PokerStars announced a special hashtag to accommodate the PSPC. Expect to see lots of usage of the #AreYouPlaying hashtag over the next year.

In addition to the launch of the PSPC… there was a bit of other good news. PokerStars will be bringing back it's alphabet tours! Wooooohoooooo! Congrats to Stars HQ for taking a mulligan with the international tours. This PS Championship/Festival branding was too confusing. I'm pumped that the LAPT (Latin American Poker Tour), APPT (Asia Pacific Poker Tour), and EPT (European Poker Tour) will return to its former glory. Yep! First they brought back the PCA and its amazing three-lettered brand. And now the other regional tours will return to the fold. I've always said that the LAPT is one of the most underrated regional tours in the world. Lots of dead money plus an amazing opportunity for side trips. Everyone must make a bucket list trip to Machu Picchu and hit up the LAPT Peru while you're in South America.
