The StarWorld Hotel and Casino in Macau dusted off its poker tables, ordered in a few hundred more prawn balls, and prepared for the now annual influx of pros for the Asian Poker Tour.
The record-breaking 12-day festival kicked off in style today with an array of satellites and side events. Each day features a side event with guaranteed pools reaching HK$150,000. The festival culminates from 20th-23rd August with the main event and a buy-in set at $HK32,000+$HK2,400.
Some of the side action on offer includes a HK$100,000 No Limit Hold’em ‘Greed’ event, a HK$150,000 rebuy event and a High Rollers tournament.
Certain to be involved in that are some of the Asian stars making their way over for the festival. Among the confirmed names are double-WSOP bracelet winner Johnny Chan plus Poker Pack members JC Tran, Steve Sung, Quinn Do and Nam Le.
