There’s nothing quite like a live poker event.
Suspense. Excitement. The chance to test and improve your skills on the felt. Whether you’re a newcomer to the game, an experienced hand or a seasoned pro, a seat at a live poker table can deliver unforgettable moments and a player experience unlike anything else.
That’s where we come in.
PokerStars Live is home to some of the most epic live poker events in the world. From massive global tournaments such as the European Poker Tour (EPT) and the PokerStars Player No Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC) to action-packed regional events like the Brazilian Series of Poker (BSOP) and the French Poker Series (FPS).
Every year, our live events and card rooms bring thousands of people together from across Europe, North America, Asia and South America to meet their fellow players and share their love for the game.
London. Paris. Barcelona.
Manila. The Caribbean. Rio de Janeiro.
If you want live poker with a view, then you’ll love PokerStars Live. Our events are held in some of the world’s most stunning locations, from the bay of Monte Carlo to the white sandy beaches of the Caribbean.
Want to spend a little time away from the tables? Why not take a boat trip out in the Mediterranean with your fellow players, or enjoy some drinks at our player’s party in the heart of Paris?
There’s even more too. From city day trips to paddle boarding, wine tasting and even gladiator-style team games, we make sure that there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy when they’re not at the tables.The best part? Anyone can get involved. Don’t just take our word for it, though.

“We were blown away by what we found at the PSPC, it really felt like a community celebration of poker.
“I've gotten myself wonderfully lost in the immersion of a poker series before, but it always felt like such a solo, individual thing, whereas this felt like a massive group smile.”

“Thanks once again for all your help at the PSPC, you helped make our time over there immense.
“Everything went seamlessly for us, and that was in no small part thanks to your help and that of the great team you have there. Everyone was really warm and welcoming, and made it the experience of a lifetime.”
You don’t need to be a pro player to qualify for one of our events, and you can qualify without paying the standard buy-in price too.

They’re perfect for newer or more recreational players looking for a chance to experience a PokerStars Live event without the expensive buy-in.
