May 22, 2020inPoker

Read the full statement about this postponement of the PSPC here. 

Will the PSPC 2020 event go ahead as scheduled in Barcelona from 20-24 August?

Due to the health risks and challenges to international travel posed by the global pandemic, we have made the decision to postpone EPT Barcelona in August and, as such, the 2020 edition of the PSPC.

When will the PSPC event now take place?

We have not decided on a new date for the PSPC event and EPT Barcelona. We are monitoring the global situation and will announce information and accompanying promotions as soon as we can.

Will the PSPC still be played in Barcelona?

Yes. PokerStars is committed to running this edition of the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship at Casino Barcelona.

Will PokerStars continue offering free Platinum Pass packages to enter the PSPC?

Yes. In fact, we will award 400 PSPC Platinum Pass packages in total, which is 80 more than originally planned. We are currently working on upcoming promotions. We will share details nearer the time.

How can I win a Platinum Pass?

For the time being we have suspended all promotions awarding a Platinum Pass, but we will update and announce new promotions both online and live as soon as we have confirmed a new date for the PSPC.

What will happen to my Platinum Pass?

Your Platinum Pass is still valid for this event and your hotel booking will be arranged for the new Barcelona dates once these are confirmed.

Can I have my Platinum Pass value refunded to my account?

Unfortunately, no.  The Platinum Pass is non-refundable and non-exchangeable. It can only be used to enter the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship event.

I have already booked my flights for Barcelona in August. What will happen to my booking?

Please email us at with your flight reservations so we can review your request.

Will the other live events that were awarding Platinum Passes still go ahead?

We have cancelled the following events for the same reasons as the PSPC 2020.

  • Road to PSPC Cannes
  • Manila Super Series 14
  • Road to PSPC Madrid Torrelodones

We will advise about the other stops as soon as we are able to do so.
