The Poker King Club

  1. 1. The Poker King Club <br />Looking to get some great poker action in Macau? Whether you are a beginner to the game or a seasoned pro, you will have a great time at the Poker King Club, which is becoming one of the Asia’s most popular poker rooms.Located on the third floor of the StarWorld Hotel and Casino, the poker room builds on the brand name created by the “Poker King” movie – Asia’s version on the 90’s cult classic “Rounders”.The poker room is open 24/7 and currently houses 11 poker tables offering Texas Hold ‘em cash games. Available blind levels are 10/25, 25/50, 50/100, 100/200, 200/400, 500/1,000, and even 2,000/5,000, all in Hong Kong Dollars.The Poker King Club also boasts of private, invitation-only games that features high rollers from all over the world. These games are said to have the biggest pots in the world, reaching millions of Hong Kong Dollars on a regular basis.It is said to be so big that management is considering building a larger table after complaints by some of the high rollers that their mountains of chips left little room to do anything else on the table.Even with big games being played at the Poker King Club, new players should not be intimidated. There are friendly poker girls on the poker room floor at all times to teach new players the mechanics of the game. There is also a training table featuring play chips for anyone who wants to get a feel for the game before dipping their toes in the cash games.“Poker is already the most popular card game in the world but for Macau we’ll have to try and introduce it slowly,” said Poker King business director Winfred Yu. “However, throughout the years I’ve seen how Chinese players have been learning and developing and I think it’s just a matter of adapting to the game and learning the tips and tricks.”He said that people who often play at the poker room can avail of benefits through a special membership card program, which is divided into different VIP tiers.“Through these cards, players can accumulate points when they play a lot which they can exchange for special prizes or promotions. We want to show the players that we really care about them and their experience at our room,” he said.The poker room also organizes tournaments every so often. In January of 2010, it held the Asian Poker King Tournament at the ballroom of the StarWorld Hotel. A total of 174 players signed up to play in the event, exceeding the HK $750,000 guaranteed prize pool and bringing the total prize money to HK $870,000.The Poker King Club is located on the third floor of the StarWorld Casino in Macau.
