A staggering 1,039 players took part in the first-ever PokerStars Players NL Hold’em Championship (PSPC) in 2019, making it the largest $25,000 buy-in poker tournament ever held. With $1,000,000 added to first place, and $8,000,000 to the prize pool via Platinum Pass awards, the PSPC attracted players from around the world, including 320 Platinum Pass qualifiers, who each won their seat via a series of promotions and giveaways held throughout 2018.
Spain's Ramón Colillas would eventually lift the trophy, turning his Platinum Pass into $5.1 million and poker immortality.
