Atlantis will continue to host one of the biggest tournaments of the year.As if playing poker in the Bahamas was not enough of an incentive, PokerStars has confirmed that its PCA event will be televised on Game Show Network.

Matt Clark, a representative for the online site, confirmed to Card Player that PokerStars has reached an agreement with GSN to air the tournament, with the premiere date tentatively scheduled for May 31.

The $10,000-to-enter European Poker Tour event begins on Monday.

The PCA, which is entering its sixth year, has become one of the premiere events on the poker circuit. Last year, 1,136 players competed for a $2 million first prize.

GSN will air the tournament in eight one-hour episodes, with each show debuting once in prime time and once in late-night, according to GSN’s public relations director, Jennifer Minezaki.

The network recently announced that it was making Sunday night ‘Poker Night,’ and it appears that the PCA coverage will be a major part of that coverage.

The PCA is held every year at the Atlantis Resort and Casino in the Bahamas. There will also be a number of tournaments held after the main event this year, with buy-ins ranging from $1,000 to $25,000.
