What you’re about to witness has been four long years in the making.

Two of the poker world’s most prestigious no limit hold’em poker tournaments – the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) and the eagerly awaited PokerStars Players Championship (PSPC) – are back for the first time since 2019, with millions of dollars up for grabs and cards-up coverage every step of the way.

Live streaming from the Baha Mar Resort in the Bahamas begins on Wednesday, January 25, 2023 and runs every day until Friday, February 3, 2023.

Poker’s household names will almost certainly be paying $10,300 and a whopping $25,000 to enter the PCA and PSPC respectively – players like Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth and Erik Seidel– so you’ll get to watch them on the live broadcasts.

But there will also be hundreds of regular people from all walks of life, each hoping to thwart the pros, win staggering amounts of money, and take full advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

And you’ll be able to watch every hair-raising moment from the Bahamas live on either the PokerStars Twitch channel or PokerStars YouTube channel.

Why watch the PCA / PSPC live stream?


You don’t have to be a hardcore fan to love the spectacle of a major poker tournament. But if you’re new to events like the PSPC, or poker in general, you might benefit from an explainer of all those moments you might otherwise miss.

Live coverage begins with the PCA Main Event, a prestigious $10,300 buy-in no limit hold’em tournament with an illustrious heritage dating back to 2004. Previous winners include Gus Hansen, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, and Mike Watson.

The tournament brings together the best players in the world and those who managed to win entry via online satellites for five days of gripping action. The winner will receive hundreds of thousands of dollars.

It’s an enormous appetizer for what’s certain to be a monumental main course.

The PSPC 2023 will be thrilling, heart-stirring, can’t-turn-your-eyes-away TV.

For one thing, it costs $25,000 just to get a seat in this no limit hold’em event.

But what makes this tournament truly remarkable is that more than 400 people in the field are in for absolutely nothing. They won something called a Platinum Pass, a free ticket that gets them in the game and gives them a chance to win millions.

REGULAR PLAYERS ON THE BIGGEST STAGE

The vast majority of the Platinum Pass winners aren’t professional poker players. They’re regular people with incredible stories: players who have battled great hardship to play, who have perhaps won their entry in incredible ways or thanks to particular talents.

To go all the way, they’ll not only have to battle through each other but all of the world’s very best poker players.

It’s a feat that Ramon Colillas from Spain accomplished four years ago. The former fitness instructor won a Platinum Pass and became the first and (so far) only PSPC champion, winning a monumental $5.1 million first-place prize.

And that’s what makes the PSPC so special.

It’s taken four years for it to return. The entire poker world — from high-stakes pros to weekend warriors — has waited with bated breath.

Now it’s back. Don’t miss it.


The PCA and PSPC live stream begins on Wednesday, January 25 and runs every day until Friday, February 3. Watch the action on either the PokerStars Twitch channel or PokerStars YouTube channel.
