ACOP (Asia Championship of Poker)

Postby fleung22 » Tue Sep 25, 2012 11:51 pm

Hi Kakis,

Just checking out who coming out for the Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP) this Oct. 26-Nov. 11 and if anyone had any questions.

If you don't know already, the ACOP is an Official APPT Event and is the Macau leg for the tour this year. Main Event is HK $100,000 and comes with a HK $10M guarantee. Lots of great events in the 17-day schedule and this is truly that 'next step' tournament for poker in Asia.

Satellites are running online everyday on PokerStars for both the ACOP Main Event and the $25k Warm-up Event ($5M GTD). Check under the Events/Macau tab.

Good luck to everyone who will make it!

Cheers,

Fred

Wow. The schedule lasts 3 weekends with 18 numbered events.

This year, i already played a total of 10events in PSM. For ACOP, Im planning to play 4 more, the 1st weekend (Event # 1-2) and the last weekend (#17-18).
Will play ACOP warm-up if i qualify, hoping to secure my hat-trick qualifications this season.
Main event, too costly la. lol

Unless something's changed, the Grand Waldo Hotel is already sold out and that's the only place we had better rates.

In terms of close proximity, then Galaxy Hotel is right across the street but they're running out of rooms quickly. The ACOP is really building up steam and you can tell by the sudden increase of the online PokerStars satellites.

I'm going to do a quick check on good rates around town that's still available and I'll get back to you guys.

Cheers,

Fred

One alternative.
Try cheaper hotels in macau, take free shuttle to galaxy (taipa) and walk to grand waldo.

ya, the packages are each worth more than 15K USD so they're pretty sweet.

LOADS of sub-qualifiers running everyday so there's lots of options to make this Sunday satellite. Good luck!

Latest Randy Lew video about what he's been doing since he won APPT Macau last year. Maybe it's just matches my humor but this is dam funny IMO.
