Still possible to catch the last coach in KL at 9.30pm.
A few of us took coach around this timing during our last trip in Nov.

1) Call the Genting VIP Hotline
2) Inform the Customer Service you want to enrol in the "Poker Tournament on 22 May"
3) Inform him/her you are not a member and give him/her your name and IC no.
4) Make advance payment of RM550 by Credit Card, (no cash payment mode to be made in Singapore)
5) You are then given a booking no.
6) Travel to Genting on 22 May, registration is btw 12-2pm @ Genting International Showroom
7) Collect your tournament slip to confirm which heat are you playing. (Heat 1,2 or 3)
8) Either check in your complimentary room @ 1st world hotel or play tournament first, depends on your heat's timing.

8 x 100 chip
20 x 10 chip
Blinds start off at 10/20. Level increase every 25mins.
In my exp, in a 10 handed table, you'll only be the button once in each level.
Blinds level increament is quite straight forward.


Starting chips : 10,000 (8x1,000, 20x100)
Blinds start from 100/200, 200/400, 300/600, 500/1000, 1000/2000..... so on, preliminary round normally end at level 7.
Blinds increase every 20mins
Total 3 Heats of 20 tables 10 handed, so total is 600paxs.
Normal Multi-tables Tournament, not a shoot-out tournament.
Prize struture would be determined after all the preliminaries.

2) Can someone enlighten me on the structure of the tournament (blinds etc), or provide a link where I can obtain such information?
Thank you.


1) Over the phone you pay by credit card, or you book over the phone, go up to Genting and pay by cash. (you need to settle the payment within a given date which is earlier than the tournament date, or else shall be treated as cancel)
2) Is a standard Live game Turbo structure, you can search the previous Genting thread might have some info on that.

Many ways.... you can ......
- Drive
- direct coach up Genting
- Fly budget, take a bus to Sentral, then take a coach up.
- Fly SQ, then take heli service from KLIA (i don't know whether still have or not after the crash ...... :shock: )

I might be driving a VIP 26 seaters coach up there ... kindly register your interest, i'll keep you posted when the time is near.

To sum it all up, not sure if i am right:-

Each player starts with 10,000 chips

8 X 1,000 = 8,000 chips
+
20 x 100 = 2,000 chips
=
10,000 chips

Blinds 10/20, increase every 20 minutes
Each tables goes 10 handed

Registration is done via telephone call, payment is through credit or cash
if its through cash, say the tour is on the 22nd, must we pay on 22nd itself during 12-2pm registration
or
must we head up earlier say a week before the tourney to make payment

and how do one progress to the semi's?
say the response is good, they manage to get 600 participants
so if its 10 handed, we got 60 tables

are we all set fix to play on only 1 table, or we are free to move table to table
or u are only allowed to move to different table once your stack deplete/increase?
60 tables, say each table got 1 sole winner. winners from each table has a stack of 100k
then the final 60 players progress to the semi on Sunday?

sorry for asking lots of question,
but thanks in advance!

Hi uncle bob,

i already register for the tourney, however my friend want to join as well but he dont have genting world card.

I called the VIP hotline and ask to sign up my friend for the member to join the tourney. but they say cannot apply online, must be the person himself go down to Genting Counter to make the member.

Is there any way that i can go about to help my friend?

This is a tournament opened to both members and non-members, maybe your friends can try to call next monday.

One little advice for all kakis.......

If you are a non-member or just a Genting Green Card member, try to bring along or apply a "Platinum" credit card. Present it along your application and you can be upgraded to the Genting Silver Card. This enable you to participate "Premier Poker" tournament in which open to Silver Card member & above only.
