Once again the Leisure World Poker Series has broken all attendance and prize-pool records as it set sail on the M/V Leisure World last weekend. One can only hope this consecutive record-smashing trend foretells an explosive local poker boom.
An unprecedented 203 players from two flights participated in the main event, packing the tournament area to the brim, leaving the guarantee in its wake and ballooning the prize pool to just over $52,000. Leading the poker flotilla after Day 1 was Chng Kia Yong ($106,200), with Hong Kong-based Lim Min Soon ($99,700) and online whiz Marvin Tay ($93,500) breathing down the leader’s neck.
