Moneymaker PSPC Tour

Fifteen years ago, Chris Moneymaker spent $86 on PokerStars to qualify for the World Series of Poker Main Event. He beat the odds and turned that PokerStars satellite into millions. He's played poker ever since. Now, he's going on an American tour to give you an $86 chance to play the $25,000 PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold'em Championship. Want in? Keep reading below.


WHAT IS IT?
Each stop of the Moneymaker PSPC Tour will host an $86-entry no-limit hold'em tournament with Chris Moneymaker. Each venue's structure will be set by the local tournament director. Or, let Chris explain it himself in this video.

WHEN IS IT?

The Moneymaker PSPC Tour will begin August 4 and run into November. We are announcing a select number of dates and locations. Each are subject to change, and there is a good chance we'll add more before the tour ends.

WHAT CAN I WIN?

Each tournament's prize pool will be determined by the number of entrants. PokerStars will add a non-transferable $30,000 Platinum Pass for the winner of each event. Each Platinum Pass is worth a $25,000 entry to the PSPC, travel money, and a stay at the Atlantis resort.

HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL PLAY IN THE PSPC?

The PSPC is expected to be the biggest $25,000 buy-in event ever held. To help ensure this, PokerStars is literally giving away 320 entries over the course of 2018. To see some of the people who have already won one, check out our Platinum Pass winners index.

WHERE IS IT?

The Moneymaker Tour will be all over America this summer and autumn. While the schedule below is subject to change, you can get a good idea of where we'll be going by checking it out. Also, we're still talking with other venues about hosting other Moneymaker Tour stops, so stay tuned and keep checking back.
