What's the story with this. How come some people buy in for cash and others for points. Does the casino cough up for the invited people or do we all just play for less?

Hi kaki,

The tournament is mainly for Genting member, they can either buy-in with cash (RM) or deduct from their Genting points in which member earned from the table or slot games.

This tournament is being partly subsisdied by the casino as the so called buy-in do come with a complimentary room (1 night) for every registered player.

Some simple calculation, let say this Poker Challenge attracts 300 players. :-

100 use points. 100 pts each = 10000pts (1 pts = about RM1)
100 invited member pay RM200 = RM20000
100 non-invited member pay RM388 = RM38000

Total prize money = RM80000 + cost of 300 rooms, how much you think Genting can profit ???

Their mean intention is to get more people to go up Genting during the low season, especially 1-2 weeks before CNY.
The 1st day (normally 2 flight) only last about 2 hours(turbo, half hour per level), what to people do after that ??? Gamble lah, of cos!

Their 2nd intention (i guess) is to gear up for APT Malaysia in Mar 2009. They were actively doing survey to set the buy-in amount in order to attract more of their member participation during these tournament to assure their debut in major poker tournament a successful one.

i will update kakis here when i have more information.

Kaki,

All Genting tournament open to members only, just there is a different between invited and non-invited ones. In here, invited members are those who do frequent their Texas Game tables thus they enjoy a slighty lower entry fees (buy-in).

You can go there to sign up for member or try online:-

Good luck.

The fastest way which i can do with RM75k non-neg chips:-

Play roulette table, just place bet on all number 0-36, RM2000 each, total - 37 bets x RM2k = RM74000.
winning 1 pay 35, after the game you would have RM70k cash chips and RM3k non-neg chips.

After that you can roll your reminding RM3k non-neg chips at pontoon table (winning odds are slighty better than blackjack) or bacarat table. Your minimum cash out would be RM70,000.
