PokerStars Players No Limit Hold'em Championship and EPT Barcelona postponed to 2021

by Severin Rasset

It is with great sadness that we have decided to move the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold'em Championship (PSPC) 2020 and EPT Barcelona to 2021. The events were due to take place this August at Casino Barcelona.

To that end, we have cancelled the Road to PSPC Cannes, Road to PSPC Madrid Torrelodones, and Manilla Super Series 14. We will keep you updated on the status of the other events currently scheduled on our live events calendar.

We realise that this news will come as a disappointment to many, but we know you will understand and appreciate why this is necessary. Our priority is the safety and good health of all our players and staff, as well as the communities that host such large events.


While we cannot provide exact dates at this time, we do know that the PSPC will be back bigger and better in 2021 at Casino Barcelona. Until then, we will focus on creating a life changing and memorable PokerStars experience for when we are safe and together again.

In the coming months, we will bring you even more ways to win a Platinum Pass for the 2021 event. We plan on making it a true celebration when the time is right. And, while the plan was always to exceed the 320 Platinum Passes gifted to players in the inaugural record-breaking PSPC, we can now announce a further 80 Passes, bringing the total to 400.

Platinum Pass winners should have already received an email from myself and the team which should answer any questions and allay any concerns. However, if you seek more clarity, please direct any further enquiries to and we will respond as soon as possible. You're part of a very special club and it is our plan to make you feel that way with additional activities and surprises in the run-up to the event. So, keep a look out for further information from us.

I am sure that players who have yet to qualify for the PSPC will also have questions, which I hope to answer here too.

Finally, we are currently working on many promotions and competitions. We will announce them as soon as they're ready, so you can expect a variety of ways to get involved.

Rest assured the PSPC will be well worth the wait and we aim to make it another history-making poker event. Until then everyone, please stay safe, play responsibly and we'll look forward to seeing even more Platinum Pass winners soon!
