PokerStars Championship Panama starts today

By Mad Harper

PokerStars Championship Panama starts today with an 11-day festival running until March 20 at Sortis Casino in Panama City. It’s the second ever PokerStars Championship after a debut event in the Bahamas in January.

 

This new PokerStars Championship series already features four more Championship events this year: PokerStars Championship Macau (March 30 - April 9), Monte-Carlo (April 25 - May 5), Sochi (May 20-31) and Barcelona (August 15-27).

PokerStars Championship Panama features 46 tournaments with more than $650k guaranteed in tournament prizes. The key events are the four-day $50k Super High Roller and $400,000 guaranteed PokerStars National Championship, which start today, and the $5,300 Main Event from March 14-20.

 

Christian Harder is the only PokerStars Championship winner so far, after taking down the Bahamas Main Event in January for $429,644.

 

There will be a live stream for the PokerStars Championship Main Event – on PokerStars.tv, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch. The broadcast starts on Day 2 (March 16), leading up to the cards-up final table on March 20.
