PokerStars cancels popular Players Championship

PokerStars announced last week that the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC) has been canceled for this year. 

The event first debuted in the Bahamas in 2019 and attracted a massive field for the $25,000 buy-in event. The company gave away Platinum Passes in the months leading up to the event.

Those included an all-expenses paid trip to the Bahamas as well as the buy-in for the tournament. Stars hoped to recapture some of that and hold the event in Barcelona.

The event has now been canceled in 2020 and 2021. The company hopes the tournament returns in 2022. Those who have won Platinum Passes already will still be able to use them whenever the event is finally held.
