Road to PSPC
Starting in June, live events across three continents will give players the ability to win a Platinum Pass as the Road to PSPC returns.
While the Road to PSPC returns to Dublin and the BSOP, there are plenty of other exciting destinations for players to visit.
And with a buy-in of just €400 at most European stops, it’s a hugely accessible route for players without access to a High Roller’s budget.
For those wanting to get involved for even less, feeder satellites from as little as €1.10 will be available to each of the events in the PokerStars client.
