Road to PSPC tournaments are a great way of winning a Platinum Pass to poker's biggest €22,500 buy-in event – the PokerStars Players NL Hold'em Championship (PSPC).

These new PokerStars Live events feature lower buy-ins than most live tournaments, and the winner of each Road to PSPC tournament will win a coveted Platinum Pass worth more than €26,000 (approx. $30,000).


A Platinum Pass includes:

  • Buy-in to the €22,500 PSPC 2020 event (approx. $25,000)
  • Six nights’ hotel accommodation for you and a guest in a five-star Barcelona hotel
  • Airport transfers
  • Bespoke PSPC merchandise
  • €1,250 expenses
  • Platinum Pass winner experiences during the event

The 2020 edition of the PSPC will be held in Barcelona from August 20-24 and there will be millions in prize money. Find out more.

You can enter Road to PSPC live events directly or win your seat in online qualifiers. Please Note: Regional restrictions apply. Not every live event will have satellites available to all players.
