Dare to Dream Sign up Offer Freeroll

Djamel Hamdi is primarily a cash game player, who fondly remembers one session at the ACF club on the Champs-Elysées, where he sat down with €50 and left with €800. The club no longer exists, but Hamdi remembers it as his most successful poker session.

That could all change in Barcelona in August, when the 50-year-old from Bailly Romainvillier, France, will play at the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC). He won his Platinum Pass in the Dare to Dream Sign Up Offer Freeroll on PokerStars.fr so is getting the tournament ticket, travel and expenses for free.

It will be his first ever live tournament and will offer him the chance to play against some of the game’s most famous players, maybe including the three he lists as his favourites: Tom Dwan, Daniel Negreanu and ElkY.
