Plan your trip to PokerStars Championship Panama

A man, a plan, a canal, a PokerStars Championship.

It doesn't quite work like the original palindrome (A Man, A Plan, A Canal: Panama), but it's close as we're going to get as we get ready to kick off the next stop on the new PokerStars tour.

After its kick-off in the Bahamas, the PokerStars Championship is headed west to the country of Panama. It will be unlike anything the Latin American scene has witnessed.


For the first time in PokerStars' Latin American travels, the Championship stop will offer a $50,000 Super High Roller, the biggest buy-in event folks in that region have seen. After that comes the $5,300 Main Event and $10,000 High Roller.

Here are some of the key dates for your planning calendar.

* PokerStars Open: March 10-14 - $220
* PokerStars Cup: March 15-19 - $440
* PokerStars National Championship: March 11-14 - $1,100
* PokerStars Championship Main Event: March 14-20- $5,300
* PokerStars Championship High Roller: March 18-20- $10,300
* PokerStars Championship Super High Roller: March 11-14- $50,000

In addition to all of that, there will more than 30 cash game tables running 24 hours a day.

So, you want to go play? If you've got the cash now, might as well start booking. It all happens at the Sortis Hotel Spa & Casino. It's a fancy place that is sure to suit you.

Want to save some cash and go anyway? Might as well have a look at the satellites PokerStars is running now. You can qualify for the Main Event and $1,100 National Championship for as little as $2.20. There are also Spin & Gos coming very soon (maybe as soon as today) that will offer a chance at a full package for $20.

We're expecting to see some of our favorite players there, including Andre Akkari, Felipe Ramos, Jake Cody, and Jaime Staples.

Once again, we'll be taking the PokerStars Blog on the road with us with live coverage beginning with the $50,000 Super High Roller on March 11.
