The Poker King Club poker room at the Venetian Macao casino resort has been relocated close to the Red Dragon Noodles outlet on the casino main floor, from its previous home in the Phoenix-themed zone of the floor. So said a press release issued on behalf of the room’s promoter.
Coinciding with the move, Poker King Club is hosting the final (pictured) of the “Suncity Cup 2017”, a poker series announced in August and with a HKD8-million (US$1.0 million) guaranteed prize pool. The series had stops in South Korea and the Philippines prior to the Macau final.
The final has attracted players from places including Vietnam, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and the Philippines, according to a press release. The main event of the tournament was scheduled for Saturday.
Leading poker players Phil Ivey, Stanley Choi and Johnny Chan launched the Poker King Club concept – promoted by Macau VIP junket room investor Suncity Group – at the Venetian Macao in May 2015.
The Poker King Club brand currently has three poker rooms under its name: Poker King Club Macau at the Venetian Macao; Poker King Club Manila at the Solaire Resort and Casino Manila, in the Philippines; and Poker King Club Korea at Maison Glad Hotel Jeju, on Jeju island in South Korea.
The first Poker King room opened at Galaxy Entertainment Group Ltd’s StarWorld Hotel in 2009 and was named after a Hong Kong film of the same name starring Louis Koo and Sean Lau Ching Wan.
