Home / Road to PSPC: Check out the full live schedule and win your way to the Bahamas

The road to the $25,000 buy-in PokerStars Players Championship (PSPC) 2023 doesn’t have to be a long one.

PokerStars is bringing the PSPC to you with 12 live stops around the world, each offering a low buy-in Main Event with a Platinum Pass worth $30,000 added for the winner. All you have to do is head to your nearest stop.

If you’ve never heard of a Platinum Pass before, prepare to pick your jaw up off the floor. The incredible prize includes:

  • Buy-in to the $25,000 PSPC, taking place in the Bahamas in January 2023
  • Six nights of hotel accommodation for the winner and a guest in a 5-star hotel
  • Airport transfers
  • $1,900 expense money
  • Platinum Pass Winner experiences during the event

The PSPC is quite simply one of the biggest events in poker. The first edition took place back in 2019 and smashed records as the largest ever $25K buy-in tournament. It was ultimately won by Platinum Pass winner (and now PokerStars Ambassador) Ramon Colillas for a whopping $5.1 million.

On the Road to PSPC, you could follow in Colillas’ footsteps by winning a Platinum Pass in a low buy-in event, and then making your way to the Bahamas to play for the big one.
