PokerStars Championship Slingshots to Macau, Starts Mar. 30

When PokerStars shuttered its regional and local tours for the wider umbrella of PokerStars Championships/Festivals last year, its aim was the first truly global poker tour.

It's definitely delivered that the past few weeks.

Just over a week after Kenny Smaron and Steve O'Dwyer put a wrap on PSC Panama with big wins, the Global Championship series slingshots across the globe to start anew in Macau tomorrow.

On tap is an 11-day festival packed with wall-to-wall events at the popular PokerStars Live Macau room - home to record-setting events on the APPT the past two years.

Four Majors, Big Buy-Ins Galore

While the vibe at first-time major PSC Panama was comparatively mellow expect the opposite when things kick off tomorrow in Macau.

A major stop on the APPT over the past 10 years Macau has its very own built-in poker culture and should see its usual mega-crowd out in force.

They have something big to look forward to right off the bat as well as Events #3 and #4 getting things started with a bang.

Event #3 is a two-day HK$82,400 (USD $10,600) No-Limit Holdem (Single Re-Entry) event and Event #4 is the HK$8,800 PokerStars National Championship (with HK$2m GTD and Unlimited Re-Entries).

Event #6: HK$3,300 PokerStars Cup, Event #12: HK$400,000 Super High Roller (Shot Clock, Unlimited Re-Entries) and Event #17: HK$5,500 PokerStars Asia Open (1m GTD, Single Re-Entry) keep the momentum going before the HK$42,400 PokerStars Championship Main Event begins April 3.

The biggest buy-ins follow shortly after with four more events over the $10k USD buy-in level including two $25.6k High Rollers.

Team PokerStars Pros Bertrand 'ElkY' GrospellierRandy 'Nanonoko' Lew and Felipe 'Mojave' Ramos are already confirmed to be in action as is high-roller reg Daniel Dvoress.

Perhaps even Macau regular Tom 'durrrr' Dwan will take a stab at an event or two now that he's broken his 4-year live tourney dry spell.
