PSPC Online series in Michigan and New Jersey

PokerStars began offering interstate play Jan. 1 for players in Michigan and New Jersey. A rise in payouts and entries was immediate, and now Michigan online poker players will get to compete against their New Jersey counterparts in a major series.

“It was brilliant to see our communities in Michigan and New Jersey come out in force on [Jan. 1] to celebrate the combining of our player pool and enjoy our special New Year’s Day events and smash the guarantees,” PokerStars US Managing Director, Severin Rasset, said in a release. “We’re now excited to bring players our first multi-state online series and our largest online series to date in the US, where players have the chance to join in the Bahamian fun of the PSPC and play alongside their [favorite] players as they battle it out on the online tables. There’s plenty more to come for the MI and NJ community and we look forward to exciting and awarding our players in 2023 and beyond.”

The PSPC is based off the PokerStars Players Championship, which will be played in the Bahamas starting Jan. 30 and run through February.

That event has a $25,000 buy-in. The PSPC online is much more affordable. Buy-in for the main event of the series, which starts Jan. 29, is $250, with a guaranteed prize pool of $300K.

It’s one of three “main events” that start on Jan. 29. A $50 buy-in mini main event has a $75K guarantee, while a $2,500 buy-in high roller main event has a $125K guarantee. That makes for $500K in main event guarantees.

There are events with buy-ins as low as $10.
