Poker Stars started a new experience, beginning to operate a poker room in Cotai Strip (Dubbed PokerStars Macau), at Grand Waldo Hotel and Casino (25 tables, 250 players, cash games and tournaments).
The poker room was launched this week with a No-Limit Texas Hold’em Charity Poker tournament, for the victims of the recent earthquake in China. Participants competed for HKD $150,000 in prizes, including entries to the $25 000 HKD buy-in September’s APPT Macau event, which features an HKD $25,000 buy-in. That event runs September 1-6, 2008 and has a guarantee of HKD $10,000,000.
“PokerStars is committed to the development of poker in Asia” said Joe Hachem, Poker World Champion and member of Team PokerStars Pro.
