You’ve already read in glorious prose all about the PCA 2018. And starting today you can watch all the world-class skill, coolers, and bad beats for yourself in marvellous HD — and you might even win a Platinum Pass in the process.
The mothership — err, the 2018 PCA — has landed on TV
The rollout of full TV coverage is as big as the PCA itself. It begins today with the 2018 PCA $100,000 Super High Roller. From now through mid-October we’ll be spotlighting Cary Katz’s $1.4 million victory on PokerStars.TV and on the PokerStars YouTube channel.
Then, on October 17, Channel 4 will begin televising nine consecutive weeks of coverage of the $10,000 PCA Main Event in the U.K. and Ireland.
They tell the full story of the tournament, with commentary from Maria Ho and Lex Veldhuis. They’ll follow world-class pros like Daniel Negreanu and amateur hopefuls like Brazilian dance teacher Charles Modesto. Each will be looking to progress to a final table filmed on one very distinctive TV set.
Along the way you’ll see Maria Konnikova and online qualifier Stephen-Michael Jost as they win some of the very first Platinum Passes to be awarded.
Each of the first six online episodes will contain information about a special freeroll that will award one $30,000 Platinum Pass. We’ll reveal a new part of the password or the date and time of the tournament during each new episode, so be sure to watch them all for a free shot at playing with the world’s best for millions of dollars in a Caribbean paradise.
So keep watching, and we’ll see one of you in the Bahamas next January!
