    Breaking: 2017 will be the final year for the Pokerstars PCA

    *** POKERFRAUDALERT EXCLUSIVE ***

    From a reliable source:

    - Pokerstars will have the PCA in the Bahamas again in 2017, but that will be its final year.

    Reasons cited:

    - The numbers have been decreasing since Black Friday, so it isn't as profitable as it once was.

    - Pokerstars already has other successful live tournament series running throughout the year, which did not exist when the PCA began over 10 years ago.

    - PCA tournament and its concept are "stale" at this point.

    - Bahamas location is only convenient for USA players, who cannot play on Pokerstars anymore.

    - Contract will be up, and Pokerstars will not be renewing.


    It is unclear at this time if the PCA will be replaced by any other tournament or venue.

    Good to know. I've heard nothing but complaints about the PCA in recent years.

    Here's the only PCA chip I have in my collection of over 3,700 $1 casino chips.

    Since PS is supposed to launch in NJ this year, they could move it there.

    I'll miss the annual stories of poker players getting fleeced trying to bring large sums of money through customs.
