In just over two months, the PokerStars Players Championship (PSPC) will take place in the Bahamas. However, PokerStars has also gone through a revamp of its high stakes offering. This will now go by the name of the High-Roller Club tournament.
To gain access to this High-Roller Club, players can buy-in for $530 as a minimum, although this does increase up to $2,100. Therefore, the professionals of the poker world will no doubt find themselves enamoured with such a tournament.
There are six events available to access, which are scheduled to take place every day from Monday through to Saturday. The first of these events is the $1,050 buy-in Daily Warm-Up. Yet, following on from this, should players want to access a game with a smaller buy-in, the $530 Bounty Builder High-Roller will take place. A Daily-Themed $1k event will then occur, with huge guarantees of between $100,000 and $225,000, before a Daily 500 will happen at 3pm. 5pm and 6pm each day will see the Daily Cooldown and Daily Supersonic events, respectively.
What Happens on Sunday?
Once Sunday rolls around, the High-Roller schedule introduces seven separate events taking place. While it’s quite a similar setup to the standard daily schedule, the Daily-Themed $1k event is taken over by the $2,100 Sunday High-Roller. Meanwhile, the buy-in of the Sunday Cooldown has an increase in price from $1,050 to $2,100, while the Supersonic event has an inflated buy-in of $1,050 from $530.
Additionally, every Sunday will see the $530 Omania High-Roller take place, catering to fans who enjoy the Omaha pot-limit games.
That being said, there are satellites for all of the events taking place, starting from as little as $17.50. Therefore, online PokerStars gamers will have the chance to involve themselves alongside some of the elite poker players of the world, for a much smaller buy-in.
These events will take place right up to the start of the PSPC, ensuring that a lot of hype is garnered for the huge Bahamas tournament.
Speaking of which, the PSPC is scheduled to take place in January of 2019, and PokerStars has a huge $8 million addition to the prize pool, as well as an extra $1 million on top for the player who wins first place. Platinum Passes to the event are still being given out at tournaments, providing players with entry to the PSPC and the trip to the Bahamas. These are worth $30,000 in total!
