Genting Higlands - tournaments closed to foreigners

Postby benwaar » Tue Oct 19, 2010 11:59 am

There is a poker tournamnet in Genting in a few days, but I won't be there as it is closed to foreigners.

http://www.rwgenting.com/en/casino/events/2010/2010_texas_holdempoker.htm

The terms are you need 10 Genting points to enter which sucks. If you are a foreigner or not a regular to Genting, you can't play. I've offered to pay more money to buy-in, but they still won't let me play.

I play in tournaments all-over and have never met with a barrier to entry like this. I do have Genting membership, I played there a few years ago. I remember they don't have any side games during tournamnets and they don't even have a card room. No, that's it, I'll never play there again.

As I can't play in Malaysia. Can anyone tell me about the best alternatives, there is a boat I've been hearing about?

I finally got an email from Genting. It didn't really say much, but closed with trying to flog me a WorldCard? Yeah right, I'm not planning to go there again so that would be pretty pointless.
