Truth or Bluff your way to a #PlatinumPass
By now, and with last weekend's timely reminder, you'll know that you can win your way to the PokerStars Players Championship by winning big in PokerStars events. Kalidou Sow is just the latest example.
That's certainly one way to win a Platinum Pass, but what if your bankroll is, let's say, a little smaller than the typical high stakes player. And while you study the game, you still have work to do before testing yourself against the game's best.
Well, among the Platinum Passes to be awarded this year, we plan on making sure low stakes players get their shot too. We've asked players how they thought we could best award a Platinum Pass...
Want a shot at a $30K #PlatinumPass?💰 The #WinterSeries is awarding FIVE, and we're giving away $2.20 tickets to anyone submitting an idea on how to give away others, with $22-215 tickets for the best suggestions. Tweet it with #PSPC & [Stars ID] 👍 T&Cs: https://t.co/lO20xEUxtn pic.twitter.com/bX02vvEE3F— PokerStars (@PokerStars) December 21, 2017
It's called Truth or Bluff.
By taking part into the Twitter contest you'll have the chance to win a Platinum Pass. Meanwhile take part in the Facebook version and you'll get the chance to win a #PSPC hat signed by Daniel Negreanu, along with other merchandise.
The format is easy. Each week we'll be posting a clip on each of the channels above. Part way through the video the action will pause. At that point you decide whether the Pro is bluffing or telling the truth.
The first videos will be released today on the @PokerStars Twitter account, with the answer (concluding part of the video) revealed this coming Thursday. They'll be more videos, posted each Tuesday, over the next three weeks.
