PokerStars recently announced the return of the VIP Club Live tour for 2014, with seven destinations scheduled across three different continents.

The VIP Club Live events, which give PokerStars players the chance to meet fellow VIPs, Team PokerStars members, and PokerStars staff in a friendly setting, with free food, drink and entertainment laid on, proved a big hit in five different cities in 2013.

This year PokerStars is ramping up its parties, increasing the overall number of stops to seven, and taking the VIP Club Live experience to a host of new cities over the next 12 months. Here is the full schedule:

March 7 – Prague, Czech Republic
April 19 – Stockholm, Sweden
June 7 – Lisbon, Portugal
July 19 – Montreal, Canada
August 30 – Hamburg, Germany
Date TBD – Isle of Man
November 7 – South America (venue TBD)

Team PokerStars Online member, Mickey Petersen, who attended several of last year’s events, said: “The VIP Club Live events are a blast. They’re a great opportunity to meet and chat with players you see regularly at the online tables, grab some free drinks and food, and take part in some special games and activities laid on by the PokerStars staff. I’ll definitely be heading back to a few of them in 2014.” 

VIP Club Live parties are open to everyone from Bronze VIP Level to Supernova Elite. PokerStars players can buy their tickets in the VIP Store. A ticket includes entry for the player and a guest, and ticket prices vary by VIP Status as follows:

Supernova Elite – FREE
Supernova – 1,000 FPP
PlatinumStar – 1,200 FPP

I'll do my utmost to make it to the Isle of Man for this year's party and disappointed I missed London last year. London is a noticeable omission from the list this year but I guess that is due to the phenomenal success of the Manx event last year, really can't wait.
