The Venetian Welcomes 2018 Poker King Cup Macau, HK$200,000 Super High Roller

Thursday is among the most important days of this week for many players interested in showcasing their poker skills at the 2018 Poker King Cup Macau which saw its official grand start with a HK$80,000 High Roller event. The Venetian Macau is set to be transformed into the hottest poker location in the region all the way through 25th September when the HK$200,000 Super High Roller is set to witness its Final Table.

Macau is known as the leading gambling hub on a global scale which is why this poker festival comes as no surprise to anyone. With its generous cash payouts for the top positions on the rank list, the projected player pool for each of the multiple-day events is high. The very first day of the poker festival at Тhe Venetian brought the grand Opening Event which comes with a buy-in of HK$3,000 as a warm-up for the players most eager to commence action.

Poker Action Starts at The Venetian

Some two hours after the start of this tournament another premium event saw its launch and that was the HK$80,000 High Roller one. There were some 48 participants willing to register for participation at the very beginning of this poker tournament. All of them were determined to go far in the structure of this event, but right before the dinner break, there were only 39 of them still in their seats.

Peter Chan was the chip leader among them with a chip count of some 145,000 to his name. This tournament would also have a second final day set to take place on Friday. At this point already eliminated players, as well as those just now joining the field, were already eligible to register for participation at the first Main Еvent Satellite tournament for this poker festival. Buy-in for this event reaches HK$2,000, bringing a well-rounded amount which could guarantee a more affordable Main Event entering option.

Main Event and Super High Roller Set to Commence

Friday is set to bring even more riveting poker offering to the player pool present at the Venetian as the initial starting flight for the culminating event is set to commence then. Buy-in for this event would amount to some HK$16,500 guaranteeing some of the largest cash payouts in this poker festival.

Later that day there would also be a second Satellite event providing players with the chance to make their way into Main Event Day 1b on Saturday. That day is also going to feature a third starting light which would go by the Turbo format and take less time to reach its final levels.

For those players who have managed to make it to the other side of the three starting flights, there would be a special reunion at the Main Event Day 2 which would grant the most proficient among them with top cash payouts. Another highlight for this Sunday would be the first Satellite event for the Super High Roller which is the third major tournament in the rich schedule of the Poker King Cup Macau.

The more affordable Super High Roller entry option has buy-ins of some HK$25,000 available on offer and interest levels for this tournament are projected to be high. For those willing to reserve their spot at the actual premium event which commences on Monday, each of the spots costs some HK$200,000.

This generous buy-in would subsequently result in an even larger overall prize pool and tempting cash payouts for the top positions on the official rank list. Tuesday is going to bring the Final day for both the Main Event and the Super High Roller one, increasing the live winnings count of the top players.
