PokerStars Announces More Live Events for 2022; Regional Tours Return With Online Qualifiers

The live action continues to return to PokerStars and the company released even more dates on Wednesday as well as a few updated schedules. The announcement includes adding even more to Stars’ regional tours, which return after a hiatus.

Players will find plenty of action on the regional schedule with the Eureka, United Kingdom and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT), Estrellas Poker Tour (ESPT, Spain), and France Poker Series (FPS) all offering numerous events this year.

The news also includes even more qualifiers for the PokerStars Players Championship (PSPC), which is set for 2023 in the Bahamas. Players now have more opportunities to win a coveted Platinum Pass. That entitles winners to a complete tournament entry and travel package.

Most series feature numerous opportunities for players to qualify online. Here’s a look at some of the events on the horizon.
