Pokerstars has put its plans for the 20 Macau Poker Cup that will run between January 10th to the 21st. This is a $1 million dollar guarantee tournament so their will some major prizes for winners.
The Macau Poker Cup is the biggest poker series in China and the prize money will add to its luster as a major poker tournament.
A Red Dragon tourney was held in April 2013 and had nearly 900 players. The Macau tourney is expected to draw over 1000 players.
For the Macau Tournament, there will be several Asia Player of the Year events as well at two new tourneys: HK $6000 Baby Dragon and the HK $50,000 High Roller Tournament.
“I always knew the MPC would get bigger and the Red Dragon is hugely popular throughout Asia,” said Team PokerStars Pro Celina Lin. The two-time Main Event champion added: “It’s hard to believe we’re at number 20 already but I have no doubt MPC20 is going to be the biggest ever, and I love the opportunity of winning a historic event.”
Players can qualify for free to MPC20 on PokerStars.net beginning November 4, 2013 via satellite seats.
