After a brief circuit across Europe, Chris Moneymaker will be heading back to the United States with his Road to PSPC Tour. From December 13th to 15th, he will be hosting a life-changing poker tournament at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Florida.
The buy-in for the event is $360, which isn’t bad when you consider that you’re vying for a $25,000 ticket at the PokerStars Players Championship. There are also many satellites that you can enter that would grant you entry into Road to PSPC events.
This will be the second time that Chris Moneymaker will be able to award an American player with a Platinum Pass this year. So far, six winners have won Platinum Passes – most of them from around the world:
- Sochi, Russia: Vadzim Haiduk
- Reno, Nevada: Drew Gonzalez
- London, UK: Andrew Barham
- Newcastle, UK: Daniel Stancer
- Milton Keynes, UK: Valdir Cordeiro
- Dublin, Ireland: Victor Antoci
The winner of each leg of the Moneymaker Road to PSPC will win a prize package worth $30,000. They will receive $25,000 entry into the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship in Barcelona with six nights’ hotel accommodation, airport transfer and money to cover expenses.
More Stops Coming Up
After this, the Road to PSPC will be heading to France. From December 16 to December 22, players can vie for Platinum Passes at Club Montmartre in Paris; then, from January 15 to January 19, the tour will be making its way to Le Havre. You’ll also be able to vie for a Platinum Pass in Citrus Heights, California from January 10 to 19.
Several more events will be announced, but there’s no telling when that will be. We’ll likely head more in the new year, and we’re sure to see PSPC tour events all over America.
This gives you plenty of time to take part in satellites that would grant you entry into a Road to PSPC event from PokerStars. Online qualifiers start at just $7.15 so, even if you’re a microstakes player, you could end up in Barcelona next year in one of the biggest poker tournaments ever.
