Poker HONG KONG

Postby pwsmiller » Mon Feb 09, 2009 3:52 pm

Poker in Hong Kong is growing rapidly and a poker league in Hong Kong has been created as well as a Poker house. If any poker players ever pass through Hong Kong, either would be most definitely worth visiting. The Poker league runs 2-3 times weekly and the website to visit for more information is: www.hkpokerleague.com.

The Poker house runs cash games and tournament style poker. The link for this club is found at: www.hkph.com.hk.

Just for some back ground on each:
The POKER LEAGUE: (An extract from the poker league website)
The Hong Kong Poker League™, formed in February of 2007, hosts Free Live Texas Hold'em Tournaments at your favorite locations throughout Hong Kong allowing you to learn the game, test your poker skills against others in your area, sharpen the skills you have already mastered, and enjoy the "Poker Night" food and drink specials at participating venues.

The HKPL was created by Poker Enthusiasts, who love to play tournament style poker, but without any risk. Players earn points just for playing and more points for winning. Player points can be accumulated for prizes including entries into worldwide known poker tournaments such as the WPT, APT, APPT and of course the WSOP.

Each season is comprised of up to 10 weeks of regular tournaments with a 1 week Poker League Championship. Venues can sign up at any point in the season and still qualify players for the Final Championship of the year.
Each tournament is comprised of 10 to hundreds of players, where they are playing until there is one person left standing. In each tournament, the top 10 players will receive points based on where they finish and how many players competed in that tournament.

We encourage players of all levels of ability to come and join our league and especially people who have never played before who may have watched it on the TV and would like to have a game without losing any money. We have experienced poker players who can teach newcomers the rules and how to play. Before long you could be earning league points, which could ultimately lead to you becoming the HK Poker League Champion and a chance to win a host of great prizes and poker related opportunities along the way.


The POKER HOUSE:
(an extract from the website - about hkph)

The Hong Kong Poker House is the first club to provide all you need to play the thrilling game of poker in a comfortable and stylish environment. Our club offers plenty of services including food, drinks and great music, all to complement your poker experience.
We are located on Hollywood Road right in the heart of Lan Kwai Fong where all the nightlife action and fun takes place in HK. With this innovative alternative, poker fans and followers including "hongkongneses" and expatriates are just minutes away from the poker tables without having to venture on a two hour round trip to Macau to be part of the poker scene.

The Hong Kong Poker House offers six high quality full sized tables, customized poker chips, cards, accessories and anything needed for a real poker experience. For all those just looking for American atmosphere, there is a great deal of alternatives offered including a trendy bar space, restaurant and a DJ Booth playing lounge style music. The modern facility is filled with plasma TV's and projection screens constantly showing poker shows and football games as well as beautiful well trained dealers that are ready to welcome players in the action.

Was in HK for over an year before moving to Sing last month... Poker scene is so much more active in HK... there's HKPH (fantastic place to play good poker at 10$-20$, 25$-50$ or even 100$-200$ all Honkies), there's Arena (though last I heard it was about to close) and then the Friday evening small stakes ($1-$2 HKD) Geo at Elizabeth House (absolute favorite- excellent game play and really good group of people). And then of course, there's Macau an hour away- Texas holdem at Lisboa, Waldo, Star World, and recently at Wynn. Hoping Sing Poker becomes as active soon. !
