The Poker King Cup of 2017 is going to be held at the Poker King Club located within the Venetian in Macau.  This amazing poker tournament will feature a total of 12 action packed events that will take place over the course of days between May 18th and May 26th.

The main highlighted event during this poker festival will be the HK $16,500.00 Poker King Cup Macau Main Event, where the main attraction of this event will be the 5 million dollar guaranteed prize pool.

This tournament begins on May 21st where there will be a total of three opening days from the 21st to the 23rd.  Players that bag chips will be allowed to continue within the tournament for another three days starting on the 24th going until the 26th, until the king of the hill is crowned.

Last year’s Poker King Cup which was held at the Poker King Club in Manila featured a much smaller guaranteed prize pool of 4 million dollars as well as a reduced buy in of $15,000.00.  Poker player Jason Lo out played a field of 279 poker players in order to be crowned the winner as well as bring home the top prize.

For this year’s Main Event poker players can qualify for a low amount of $2,000.00 by going through any of the satellite tournaments that will be going on from May 18th through the 22nd.

The $8,000.00 Poker King Cup Warm-Up is also scheduled which will feature a 1 million dollar guaranteed prize pool.  The action will begin on May 19th and May 20th.  Poker players who survive will compete for the title on May 21st.
