The year has flown by and it's almost December, which means time is running out to win a free trip to the Bahamas for a chance to play in one of the largest and most prestigious poker tournament in the universe. Get ready to pack your bags and sip on umbrella drinks while flinging around chips against the top players in the world. In January 2023, PokerStars brings back the PCA, which will be hosted at a swanky new venue in the Bahamas. Baha Mar Resort will be the epicenter of festivities including the PCA Main Event and the triumphant return of the PokerStars Players Championship.
If your memory is fuzzy the last few years from the pandemic, it's okay. PokerStars crushed the first-ever PSPC in the Bahamas back in 2019 when an unknown qualifier from Spain banked $5.1 million. The folks at PokerStars HQ wanted to switch things up during a second installment of the highly-successful and popular inaugural PokerStars Players Championship, so they decided to move the venue to Barcelona, Spain in the summer for 2020. However, the global pandemic turned the entire world upside down. The second version of the PSPC and other events were postponed or canceled, but when PokerStars had a chance to reschedule the PSPC, they decided to return to paradise and host the event in the Bahamas in January 2023.
Not everyone has a juicy bankroll, or $25K lying around, which is why Platinum Passes are the best way to get in on the action. PokerStars has been handing out Platinum Passes all year long, but here's two more chances to snag your baller package to the Bahamas.
Set your calendar for December 2. Gotaga, his brother, and friends are hosting an epic poker night that will be live streamed from his studio in Paris. Yes, you have a chance to join the top Twitch poker streamers on the planet for a chance to win cash and a Platinum Pass to the 2023 PSPC.
In addition to the insanely popular Gotaga, there will be other Twitch streams such as Domingo and Xari. Oh, and there's some other big names including the legendary French rapper Rim'K and JOYCA from YouTube fame.
The head-to-head tournament starts at 8pm local time in Paris. So do not miss out on the action. There's an online viewers freeroll running parallel to the event with a Platinum Pass and €20,000 prize pool at stake.
Meanwhile… if you're in Sin City in early December, you will have a chance to win a Platinum Pass by playing poker at one of the newest casinos on the Strip.
On December 8, Resorts World Las Vegas will host a special $400 buy-in tournament which has a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool. There's three opening flights slated for December 8, 9, and 10, and they will crown a champion on December 11. PokerStars is adding a Platinum Pass to the mix, so the winner of this special event will get cash plus a Platinum Pass to the 2023 PSPC at Baha Mar in the Bahamas in January.
Head over to PokerStars for more specifics.
In case you were wondering, each Platinum Pass is valued at $30,000. It includes a buy-in to the $25,000 PSPC, plus six nights of accommodations at the opulent Baha Mar Resort in the Bahamas, a free ride to/from the airport, and $1,900 in expense money (to pay for your flight). There's also a special party and other events, so here's your chance to attend a bucket list event through a PokerStars Platinum Pass.
