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!”
