PSPC Announcement

We are sad to announce that the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC) will not go ahead in 2021. However, we are excitedly planning ahead to a later date with the aim to truly celebrate being back with our community with a bang when the time is right.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty, at this time, we cannot provide exact dates for when the PSPC will take place but will keep everyone informed with updates when we have them.

We know that this further news will come as a disappointment to many hoping the PSPC would take place this year, but our priority is the safety and good health of all our players and staff, as well as the communities that host such large events.

This event is one of a kind, therefore we don’t want to settle for anything less than an amazing experience for those currently with a Platinum Pass, and those yet to win one. And we truly can’t wait to see all our players, and run this event as it should be.

We promise it will be worth the wait.

Our aim is once again to create a history-making poker event with our community at the heart of it.

Until then, stay safe and play responsibly. We’ll see you soon!
