Posted by Carolyn on Feb 02, 2018 Posted in Poker Promotions | No Comments »

French and Spanish online poker players are now able to share liquidity and compete with each other. PokerStars is right in the middle of the action. The online poker operator already had poker rooms in both countries and was quick to customize its software to cater to the shared liquidity regulations. PokerStars became the first online poker operator to launch shared liquidity operations and is currently servicing both the French and Spanish online poker markets.

PokerStars Celebrates Shared Liquidity With FRESH

In celebration of the shared liquidity, PokerStars is holding a France Espania Hold’em (FRESH) tournament series. This event welcomes players from both countries and gives them multiple opportunities to win huge sums of prize money. PokerStars has confirmed that more than €5 million will be spread across guaranteed prize pools for the 50 plus events in the series.

In a statement, Severin Rasset, Director of Poker Innovation and Operations at PokerStars said “After so many years of closed liquidity, it is a major milestone to offer the first online series that combines French and Spanish players. We created this series by learning from both countries and we hope that players will enjoy the bigger prize pool and tournaments on offer.”

FRESH Tournament Schedule

FRESH was launched on Jan 28 and is scheduled to run till the end of Feb 12. There are a number of exciting events scheduled on a daily basis. The online poker operator has a number of low buy-in events starting out at just €10 to enable as many poker players as possible to take part. What is interesting is that some of these low buy-in events have large guaranteed prize pools, with some of them going up to €100,000. To see a full schedule of FRESH events, please visit the PokerStars website.

There will also be a number of high stake events where the buy-ins are a lot higher. Players who cannot afford these high buy-ins will have the opportunity to play online satellite events which have very low buy-ins and win a seat to these high stake events. These online satellite are also available for the Main Event which is the FRESH-48 Million Event – Progressive KO which is a two day event. The winner of this event will win a platinum pass to the inaugural PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC). Each platinum pass has a value of $30,000. There will also be an additional platinum pass given out at FRESH. This will be decided by an all-in shootout which groups all the players that entered at least one FRESH event.

PokerStars is introducing a number of new features to make this inaugural tournament series special. For one, there is a phased ‘Hercules; tournament that has a €20 buy-in and a €300,000 prize pool. ‘Super Jueves’ events are also scheduled and their guaranteed prize pools can increase to €150,000 and €250,000 during the series.

The Main Event which is a two-day progressive KO event is expected to see a massive turnout. The buy-in is set at €250 and the guaranteed prize pool is a staggering €1,000,000.
