Earlier this week, PokerStars officially revealed that it has plans to hold the second edition of the massively successful Pokerstars Players No-Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC). The championship event series will be making its grand return as from August 20 to August 24 but the location has been shifted from the Bahamas to Barcelona.

Just like in the inaugural PSPC, the poker operator will also be giving free passes through its very popular Platinum Pass giveaway campaign. This will be done through a series of competition and exciting challenges in the run to August 2020. If history is anything to go by, the campaign series is set to attract just as many poker players as it did in the lead up to the PSPC 2019 that went down in January.

“The inaugural PSPC was an amazing success and featured hundreds of Platinum Pass winners who dared to dream of playing in an exclusive high-roller event. The PSPC demonstrates our commitment to cultivating and growing the game, not only by creating opportunities for poker fans of all levels to win life-changing sums of money but also by showcasing poker and the entertainment it provides,” said Severin Rasset, PokerStars’ Managing Director & Commercial Officer for Poker.

How to Get Win a Platinum Pass

The announcement of the PSPC 2020 came during the EPT Barcelona main event when PokerStars surprised five finalists of the ‘Chase Your Dream – Play Against Your Heroes’ competition with Platinum Passes. All the five finalists will, therefore, get the opportunity to be a part of one of the most prestigious and exciting poker events of 2020. These five lucky players were:

  • Adrian Garcia (23 / Salamanca, Spain)
  • Clement Eloy (36 / Lille, France)
  • Danielle Summer (38 / Tenerife, Spain)
  • Christoph Walkenhorst (35 / Bielefield, Germany)
  • Daryl Inglis (43 / Ontario, Canada)

Each of the Platinum Passes that PokerStars is giving away will include free entry to the $30,000 buy-in tournament as well as a six-night fully paid hotel stay, transportation as and other expenses for the winner.

Beginning August 28, PokerStars announced that it will be giving away 10 Platinum Passes in a Mystery Chest promotion through the Stars Rewards program. If you do not get a shot at acquiring one during that promotion, you have nothing to worry about since the company will be holding more Platinum Pass giveaways at regular intervals up until the date of the championship. The details will be availed to PokerStars customers in due course so be sure to stay tuned.
