This year's PCA will officially conclude on Tuesday, January 14th, with two different events - Event #46 ($500+$50 NLHE Shootout) and Event #47 ($500+$50 PLO Shootout).
There will be a total of 47 events in 2010, which is well up from previous years.

The PCA has quickly become one of poker's premier events, due to the heavy involvement from Pokerstars and sunny locale. The fact that the event takes place in early January certainly doesn't hurt, as many people are looking to escape cold climates during this time of year.
The 2010 PCA will attract many of poker's biggest names. In addition, Pokerstars recently announced that Kelly Rowland will be performing at the PCA party on January 9th.
Last year's PCA main event attracted 1,347 players and was eventually won by Poorya Nazari, who ended up taking home $3 million dollars.
Could this year's turnout possibly top 2009? We'll soon find out.. good luck to everyone that is planning on playing in the main event.
