The 2016 PCA Festival will offer over 100 events - including the $5,300 Main Event - running from January 6-14, 2016.

From November 2-8 2015, we’re giving you plenty of ways to win your way to The Bahamas.

Each prize package to The Bahamas is worth $10,770 and includes:

  • $1,002 in travel expenses

How to win your PCA Package

PCA Puzzle: Collect pieces for your PCA puzzle. As soon as you have collected all six pieces of your Puzzle you will be register into a PCA All-in Shootout on November 9 with one PCA package and $6000 in cash added to the prize pool. Best of all, you don’t need to be present during the All-in Shootout to be in with a chance of winning, as players will be all-in every hand until there’s a winner of the PCA package. To start collecting puzzle pieces and follow your progress, create a PokerStars account (if you haven’t already done so) then open your Challenges window - available in the PokerStars desktop client and/or Mobile app.

PCA Freerolls: free-to-play tournaments are running daily at 14:35 ET from November 2-8, giving you the chance to qualify for the Final where we are giving away a PCA package completely for free.
