PokerStars Sponsored Live Tournament Series

PokerStars recently announced in their Frequently Asked Questions page to U.S. players that balances can be used to play in any of their sponsored poker tours around the globe. Quoted from the FAQ:

Q. Can I still play in PokerStars live events?
A. You are still welcome to play in the PCA or any of our live poker tours. Unfortunately, you will not be able to deposit money to buy in directly to these events through PokerStars, but you can use the remaining balance in your account to register in our live events.

Let's take a look at some of the upcoming PokerStars sponsored events around the world.

European Poker Tour

  • EPT San Remo – San Remo, Italy (April 27 – May 3)
