New championships and festivals are lined up as part of the live tournament schedule on PokerStars.
For those who are regulars and enthusiasts in online poker, there is much to look forward to at the PokerStars platform. There would be a radical change in the live events that the site has planned.
Tours such as LAPT and EPT would be consolidated. As Day 2 of European Poker Tour Barcelona event was about to start, PokerStars stated that for the next year the live events will become restructured. They will become part of PokerStars Festivals and PokerStars Championships. The championship that is scheduled for the first part of next year will be in the Bahamas which will be held from Jan 6th to 14th 2017. It is being rebranded as PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. The championships will last for the duration of 10 to 11 days and will end with a Main Event. The destinations that are confirmed for the championships next year are Panama, Macau, Monte Carlo, Barcelona and others.
The festivals on the other hand will last from six to seven days with a Main Event buy in as well as several events available for casual players to participate in. The EPT tournament director has announced two stops as at London and New Jersey. These are exciting news for those who are regular players at PokerStars. This gaming company has also launched new payout structure that would make it more lucrative for the online poker tournaments to be played. These changes help keep the company ahead in the changing gaming scenario and to keep things new and interesting for the regular players. The company also has star participation events lined up from time to time. With varieties of events to look forward to, it is hoped that it can counter the drop in online poker gaming traffic that it experienced this year.
