POKERSTARS CHAMPIONSHIP MACAU

The inaugural PokerStars Championship Macau is set to commence on March 30 and will run until April 9. This will be the premier global PokerStars-sponsored event hosted in the breath-taking City of Dreams complex in Macau. The itinerary consists of 52 events offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to players to prove their mettle and get the chance to win a title and bragging rights at the first PokerStars Championship event ever hosted on the Eastern Hemisphere.

Poker players will most definitely look forward to high value events such as the HK$2,000,000 guaranteed HK$8,800 PokerStars National Championship and HK$1,000,000 guaranteed HK$5,500 PokerStars Asia Open besides the highlight event i.e. HK$42,400 PokerStars Championship Main Event

Indian Contingent will grace the series too with renowned pro’s namely Team PokerStars Pro Aditya Agarwal, Kunal Patni, Paawan Bansal, Raghav Bansal, Sumit Sapra and Sahil Chutani in attendance. Samay Parikh may also join the festival.

India’s most notable poker player and country’s sole Team PokerStars Pro Aditya Agarwal offered his views stating - “I plan to reach by Sunday morning so I can play the PokerStars Sunday Million Anniversary tournament from Macau, will be a long Sunday and will then play the PokerStars Championship Main Event on Tuesday.

This is the first time such a big global event is happening in Macau, besides this being first of its kind we have had mostly Asian dominated tours and regional tours hosting their bigger tournaments in Macau, so PokerStars Championship should really bring people for far and beyond along with all the local regulars to make it one of the biggest events ever in Asia!”
