The historic PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship is returning for its second edition and this time it will be held in Barcelona, Spain in August 2020.
The announcement for PSPC 2020 was made earlier this week at the PokerStars European Tour (EPT) Barcelona, currently underway at Casino Barcelona.
Soon after making an announcement, PokerStars awarded the first five Platinum Passes to all finalists of the Chase Your Dreams promotion.
Two days later, three more Platinum Passes have been given away by PokerStars through the ongoing PSPC Mystery Chest promotion requiring players to win the hand with A-5.
In total, five platinum passes are being given away in this promotion.
Similar to last year’s PSPC event at the Bahamas, the Platinum Passes are valued at around €26,500, approximately $30,000, which include travel, accommodation and expenses.
Last year, PokerStars gave out 320 Platinum Passes through a myriad of paths both live and online. In the end, Ramon Collilas, a Platinum Pass winner (and now PokerStars Ambassador) took down the inaugural PSPC event at the Bahamas for $5.1 million.
While the operator has yet to reveal the details on how many Passes will be given this year, expect to see a similar number of passes handed out to players this year via a similar route of competitions and promotions.
