PPS Figueira

The new Portugal Poker Series (PPS) stops off in Figueira de Foz for the second leg of its inaugural season, before wrapping up in Espinho in October.

Sponsored by PokerStars, the new PPS brings tournament poker to Portugal, where the sport has grown rapidly over the last few years. After a successful debut at Vilamoura the action continues at PPS Figueira, which will be a four day event with multiple different side events in addition to the €700+€70 main event (which is capped at 400 players).

As is the case with all its tournament series, PokerStars gives players plenty of chances to win their PPS Figueira trip packages online, with weekly finals as well as smaller buy-in satellites and FPP tournaments that let players of all size bankrolls take a crack at winning a trip to Figueira de Foz for what promises to be another exciting live poker event.

Not only is the main event buy-in very affordable but the PPS Figueira field should likely be softer than most, as it’ll contain a ton of online qualifiers playing in their first big live event as well as a generally softer level of competition found in countries such as Spain, Portugal, and Italy.
