More than 300 players will win their way into the rake-free event for free via Platinum Pass giveaways including one lucky player from the MSPT.
“We’re very excited that PokerStars is offering MSPT poker players the opportunity to win a Platinum Pass into their $25K event, which is sure to be one of the poker’s most historic and unique events,” said MSPT President Bryan Mileski. “Plus, it’s not going to be hard to get a Midwest player to go down to the Bahamas in the dead of January.”
