Details On PokerStars Players Championship Structure

After 10 months of the announcement on what is expected to be the biggest $25,000 tournament, PokerStars has made revelations on what players should expect when they are seated for the upcoming PokerStars Players Championship. The structure of the tournament and the percentage of payout have been planned for players, and by the players in addition to PokerStars team members. The field will have a combination of elite high-end players as well as 300 participants who have enrolled for free in the event by winning platinum passes. The prize pool would be over $10,000,000 and the winner of PSPC will become a millionaire.
