The highlight of the festival is the $10,300 PCA Main Event on Jan. 9-14. Thanks to the special relationship we enjoy with PokerStars you can head there for free[/URL] and here's how.
From Dec. 1 to Dec. 13, PokerStars is hosting seven password-protected PokerNews PCA Qualifiers where the top 20 finishers will be awarded a ticket to the PokerNews PCA Main Event tournament valued at $55 taking place on Dec. 16. Each freeroll takes place at 3:05 p.m. ET as listed below and features a great structure with players beginning with 3,000 in chips and blinds increasing every eight minutes.
In addition to these freerolls, there will be one more last-chance freeroll on Dec. 15 at 3:05 p.m. that is exclusive to players that have downloaded PokerStars through our links and have made their first deposit in 2016 or 2017. Instead of the usual 20 tickets to the PokerNews PCA Main Event, this freeroll will award 50 tickets.
The winner of the PokerNews PCA Main Event tournament will be awarded a PCA Main Event package valued at $15,855, which includes a Main Event ticket, hotel accommodations at the luxurious resort, $1,000 cash folio, access to the player's party and more. In total, the tournament awards $17,575 in value where everyone else at the final table walks away with a tournament ticket valued at $215.
The tournament features a deeper structure than the freerolls with players kicking off the action with 5,000 in chips and blinds increasing every 10 minutes. Even if you miss out on a ticket in our qualifiers, you can opt to buy directly into the PokerNews PCA Main Event for $55.
