Moneymaker PSPC Tour arrives at Mohegan Sun

19 Sep 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- PokerStars Ambassador Chris Moneymaker will be among hundreds of hopefuls keen to make their mark at Mohegan Sun’s Poker Room from 4-7 October 2018 when the Moneymaker PSPC Tour makes its sixth stop of the series.

Players will have the chance to win life-changing sums of money by parlaying an $86 buy in into a Platinum Pass, worth $30,000, to the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC). They can also stop by the annual Sun Brewfest on Saturday, 6 October in the Earth Expo & Conventions Center where they’ll find live entertainment, games, a cornhole tournament and delicious food.

“We’re ready to host hundreds of poker players for what should be a really exciting weekend here at Mohegan Sun. The Moneymaker PSPC Tour is a great poker event that gives players an incredible opportunity, all for $86. We’re pulling for a Mohegan Sun player to take it all the way to millions in the PSPC,” said Ray Pineault, President & GM of Mohegan Sun.

The Moneymaker PSPC Tour, Chris’ brain-child, will run six more live $86 buy in tournaments, each awarding cash prizes and a Platinum Pass.
