PokerStars has announced several new additions to its 2022/23 live events schedule, including European Poker Tour (EPT) stops and regional events, as well as the return of the PokerStars Players Championship (PSPC). Firstly, Barcelona and Prague will host EPT events in August and December 2022, respectively.
The Catalan city will welcome players from the 8th to the 21st of August, when they will be able to participate in various tournaments at Casino Barcelona. The Czech capital, meanwhile, will host tournaments from December 7th to 18th at King’s Casino Prague.
More regional tours were also announced, with the PokerStars UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) set to return to Dublin after six years. This will take place from the 16th to the 22nd of May at the Bonnington Hotel.
PokerStars will also be sponsoring the Summer Poker Festival for the first time, June 18-26 in Malta, with the Main Event being a joint UKIPT and Estrellas Poker Tour (ESPT) event.
Finally, the brand will return to the Bahamas in early 2023 for the Players Championship. This will take place from January 30th to February 3rd during a special edition of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA).
“We miss our live events as much as our players, so it is our real pleasure to announce that the PokerStars Players Championship will take place at Baha Mar in January,” said Severin Rasset, Managing Director and Commercial Director at PokerStars.
“Beautiful location, hundreds of qualifiers, with millions to win. If there is one tournament to choose from for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, it will be the PSPC.”
