PokerStars releases Macau Poker Cup schedule

21 March 2011

MACAU -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- PokerStars Macau at Casino Grand Lisboa has released its official schedule for the next Macau Poker Cup (MPC) which runs from May 28 to June 5.

With the huge success from the MPC in February, organizers have given Asia‘s premiere poker series a makeover to accommodate the rapid growth in player numbers.

“We prepared an enhanced schedule well before the Macau Poker Cup took place in February” said Roberto Wong, PokerStars Macau Business Manager. “The amazing thing is that the last MPC was a bigger success than we imagined so we‘ve made changes to improve our schedule in anticipation of further growth.”

The expansion begins with a programme that features 8 Official Asia Player of the Year events running over 9 days. The signature Red Dragon tournament guarantees a HKD $3,000,000 prize pool and this main event is now a 4-day event.

PokerStars Macau will launch it‘s revamped schedule with the 3x Turbo Rebuy Red Dragon Satellite which guarantees 5 Red Dragon entries. This will be the first ever live version of this popular online satellite structure and will give players a chance to qualify for the HKD $11,000 main event for as little as HKD $500.

Long time favourites return during the opening weekend with the $3,000 NLH, $1,000 Charity event, and $1,500 Deepstack. The previous schedule generated a whopping 1,579 total player field and awarded HKD 7,780,280 (USD $1,000,000) in prize money. PokerStars Macau expect those numbers to rise with the new additions of the $5,000 KO Bounty event, $6,000 NLH, and HKD $30,000 High Rollers event.

Also new on the schedule is the $4,000 Teams Event which has 2-player teams compete with each other. To celebrate the 13th Macau Poker Cup, PokerStars Macau is running the Play With Team PokerStars promotion where fans can play with their favorite Team PokerStars PRO: Asia.

Players can qualify FREE on PokerStars.net for a chance to play with Team PokerStars Pros Bryan Huang, Raymond Wu, and Celina Lin.

“I‘m really excited about this promotion.” says Celina Lin. “Teams Events are always so much fun and PokerStars is giving away 3 great packages absolutely for free! There will definitely be a competitive spirit between Bryan, Raymond, and myself.”

Winners will receive a Macau Poker Cup Package which includes the $4,000 Teams Event entry, USD $500 cash, 3 Nights Accommodation at Grand Lisboa Hotel, and a Team PokerStars PRO: Asia teammate.
