MACAU POKER CUP ANNOUNCMENT

Source: http://www.pokerasiapacific.com/macau-poker-cup-pokerstars-live-host-mpc-schedule-april4914.html

Last week saw PokerStars Macau announce that they were moving to the City of Dreams, which would become the permanent home of what is known as “PokerStars LIVE at the City of Dreams”. That news was welcomed with open arms as poker players from all around the Asia-Pacific would be privy to a new exciting venue for their favourite PokerStars Macau tournaments, along with plenty of cash game poker action.

On Thursday evening, PokerStars Macau has announced the first event that will take place inside the walls of PokerStars LIVE at the City of Dreams is the ever-popular Macau Poker Cup (MPC). Running from April 19 – 28th, the second MPC of 2013 is expected to be the biggest ever, with PokerStars Macau offering an impressive HK$5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool in the HK$11,000 Macau Poker Cup: Red Dragon Main Event.

The MPC already holds the current record for largest tournament in Asia when it hosted 635 unique players in the February, 2012 MPC. This is expected to be broken this April when the MPC helps PokerStars celebrate the beginnings of the newest live poker room in Macau.

“It’s become a tradition of sorts for PokerStars LIVE Macau to open with the Macau Poker Cup,” said Danny McDonagh, PokerStars’ Director of Live Operations in the Asia-Pacific. “There’s been an incredible buzz since we announced the move to City of Dreams, Macau and we are doing everything possible to ensure our new home begins with a new record.”

PokerStars Macau has certainly already played a massive role in the growth for poker in Asia and poker in Macau, and with this MPC now being announced to be held at the new PokerStars LIVE venue, that is looking like it will continue to be the case in 2013 and moving forward. The Senior Vice President of the City of Dreams, Mr. Steven Webster, certainly agrees and will be hoping that the City of Dreams will play a large role in aiding this growth.

“City of Dreams always strives to bring the most innovative, premium gaming experience to our patrons. ‘PokerStars LIVE at the City of Dreams’ is set to provide a sophisticated yet fun atmosphere designed with the player’s comfort in mind to attract the world’s top poker players and will become the permanent venue for Asia’s most successful poker tournaments,” said Mr. Webster. “We believe ‘PokerStars LIVE at the City of Dreams’ will significantly enhance the face of the Macau Poker scene.”

Not only will the City of Dreams play host to what is set to be the largest MPC in PokerStars Macau history, but as expected the MPC schedule will see several enticing side events included in the ten-day poker carnival. The MPC will also contain nine official Asia Player of the Year events including a HK$500,000 guaranteed HK$5,000 NL Holdem and a HK$1,000,000 guaranteed HK$20,000 NL Holdem.

“I always get excited about the Macau Poker Cup, but this is the one Red Dragon you don’t want to miss,” said two-time Red Dragon winner Celina Lin. The Team PokerStars Pro added: “You never need an excuse to go to City of Dreams. If you’re in Macau and like to have fun then you’ve definitely been there already. Adding poker just means that certain people may never leave the property now!”

Be sure to return to Poker Asia Pacific for all the latest Macau Poker Cup news, results and schedules. Once again, congratulations to PokerStars Macau and we look forward to watching the MPC and the new venue prosper. Check out the April 2013 MPC Schedule below.
