The i love pokerkaki has announced that the second edition of the Macau Poker Challenge will be held on June 6 at the eighth floor of the StarWorld Hotel and Casino. The event is guaranteeing a HK $250,000 prize pool with the buy-in set at HK $2,750 + HK $250.

The first Macau Poker Challenge was held on March 7 at the same venue. It featured a guaranteed prize pool of HK $200,000 and was won by Hong Kong’s Weng Hong Hoi, who bested a field of 143 players to take home the crown and first prize of HK $116,800.

Uncle Bob came in 2nd.

Bro, the guaranteed prize pool is too small leh HKD250k = SGD45k. Even smaller than the Genting Open and the buy-in is double of the Genting Open buy-in.

Not that worthwhile to go all the way to Macau...unless they provide free hotel room, heh heh.

The flight fare + hotel rate far exceed the buyin. Unless is "on the way" like last challenge tourney, if not it doesn't make sense to travel over just for this small tourney.
