As you may know, the “Mini PokerStars Players Championship” is an online poker tournament series hosted by PokerStars, one of the best poker sites.

There are usually various events in the tournament series with buy-ins at a lower level than the PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold’em Championship, which is the company’s flagship event. In order to provide a more accessible entry point for newer or less experienced players, the Mini tournament gives more players the opportunity to compete for large prizes.

Mini PCA and Mini PokerStars Players Championship Schedules

From January 25 through February 3 of this year, PokerStars will host the Mini PCA festival, along with the Mini PokerStars Players Championship (PSPC).

During the Mini PCA, three low-stakes events will take place each day. Prizes include EPT Monte Carlo satellite tickets. Each event begins at 5:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m., and 9:30 p.m.

January 29 is the day of the Mini PCA Main Event, which begins at 7:30 p.m. Entry costs $55 unless you win your way into the event through one of the many satellites running 24/7. The Mini PCA Main Event guarantees $100,000 as a prize pool in addition to bankroll-boosting cash prizes. The winner of the EPT Monte Carlo package will receive the prize package.

Get $10,000 more with Mini PSPC

As you may be wondering if the online Mini PSPC is an excellent alternative to the PSPC, if you can’t afford the $25,000 buy-in price for the PSPC, you might want to consider it.

If you decide to take part in a $25 buy-in tournament, the Mini PSPC, you might want to know that, as part of the five-day event, you sit down with 60,000 chips and you play to a 20-minute clock, with blinds starting at 100/200. As soon as the eighth level of Day 1 is reached, the blinds will still be 500/1,000/100a by the end of the day.

In addition to the $10,000 prize pool from PokerStars, the top 200 finishers from the EPT Monte Carlo will also receive an EPT Monte Carlo satellite ticket worth between €5.50 and €530 as part of the $10,000 prize pool.

You still have time to register before Day 2 of the PokerStars virtual felt if you can’t make it on Day 1.
