The 2019 PokerStars Player No Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC) has officially become the largest $25,000 buy-in event in history.
PokerStars Team Pro Chris Moneymaker tweeted out the news early Sunday morning, as the 2003 WSOP Main Event bracelet winner predicted that the PSPC might eventually eclipse 1,000 entries — which would result in a prize pool of nearly $25,000,000.
The @PokerStars #pspc is officially the largest 25k in poker history. Over 640 entrants and probably many more tomorrow. Will get close to 1k entries. So blessed to have the opportunity to participate in this event.

Late registration for the Bahamas PSPC will conclude at the start of Day 2 on Monday. An eventual winner will walk away with the PSPC’s multi-million dollar first place prize this coming week, and the 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure will extend through January 16th at the Atlantis Resort & Casino.
