Platinum Pass to be Awarded
PokerStars has announced it is to award the tournament’s champion a Platinum Pass worth $30,000. The Platinum Pass is used for the PokerStars Players Championship (PSPC) to be held at the 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. The PSPC is set to be the richest $25,000 buy-in tournament in the history of poker, thanks in part to PokerStars giving away $9 million worth of Platinum Passes.
