Another big ticket event will be the HK$80,000 Poker King Cup High Roller event which will be held from May 19 to May 20. Satellite events with buy-ins of just HK$11,000 offer an attractive opportunity for players seeking an entry ticket to the prestigious event at a fraction of the entry cost.
The HK$8,000 Poker King Cup Warm-Up event will be kicked off at the same time as the High Roller one and will have two opening days, May 19 and May 20. The event concludes with the single final day to be held on May 21. Apart from these three big events, there are several other events being planned during the tournament, giving poker players a wide range of choices, in terms of not only formats but also buy-ins.
Popular No Limit Hold'em format-based events will be available for three days. Similarly the HK$1,000 Bounty which follows the bounty format has been planned for two days. A mega event being introduced for the first time is the HK$ 20,000 King Size Stack. Other events on schedule are the HK$3,000 Queens Event, the HK$3,000 Deep Stack Turbo events and the HK$3,000 6 Max Turbo.
Poker King’s last major event was the Poker King Cup National held at Solaire Resort and Casino Manila in June 2016. The event boasted of a PHP4 Million Guarantee with a buy-in of PHP13,500. It drew a fair amount of interest, registering a total of 279 entries. The player that eventually went on to win the championship was Team PKC member, Jason Lo.
