My "Mcdonald Curry Sauce" says ..... "Akan Datang" in 3rd quarter 2011 for the one wearing hat ....... And a "no no" at this moment for the one where its parent lives on a hilltop.

A link for all. Description of all the games coming or available.

Looks like RWS will have hold'em games. 5% rake.

http://app.cra.gov.sg/public/www/download.ashx?id=89

For full list of games - http://app.cra.gov.sg/public/www/content.aspx?sid=125

For MBS, I only see progressive hold'em

nice...but is it worth paying 100 bucks to be there to play their stakes?

i'm assuming stakes of 5/10 and above ...by which ..I don't think the $100 levy or $2k yearly payment matter that much

This has actually been posted on forums here since the early days of RWS' opening, so I'd discount the reliability of this...

Maybe can expect as low as 50-100BB buy-ins, which would be about 500-1k SGD.

For example, in Macau at 10/25, you can buy in for minimum 1000HKD, which translates to only 40BB.

And don't forget that the IRs attract a fair bit of foreigners too. But honestly if the aunties and uncles can afford to either pay the 100 levy and/or the yearly membership then 2k is really nuts to them.

Poker is indeed opened in RWS, 1st in SG.. but the blinds are 100/200 currently and the table is only opened in the VIP zone...Need all bros who goes to the casino.. to give the marketing some feedback on the blinds and access to the VIP zone..

There is a second floor area, completely out of bounds. Haha who knows maybe some of the poker legends even came over to play before...
