Located on the 2nd floor of the famous Grand Lisboa in the heart of Macau, PokerStars Macau will be the largest poker room in continental Asia with twenty two tables available for Texas Hold’em poker tournament action and 24-hour cash games.

PokerStars Macau at the Grand Lisboa will host the largest regular weekly poker tournaments in Asia, the premiere Macau Poker Cup series every other month, and the annual Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) Macau Poker Festival. PokerStars Macau is also the official live satellite venue for Asia Pacific Poker Tour events, giving players the chance to qualify for the prestigious tour.

Freeroll tournaments with no entrance fees for new poker players will be available every week, as well as events for poker players of all skill levels from amateur to professional. Players can register or qualify online for all events, or live within the poker room.

The opening on the weekend of March 19th-22nd will also celebrate the return of the Macau Poker Cup and its signature us$ 1,265 buy-in Red Dragon event. For the first time ever, the Red Dragon will have a guaranteed minimum prize pool of us$ 63,266. Numerous other events will be held during the Macau Poker Cup, including a charity event with proceeds donated to Caritas Macau.

“PokerStars is committed to the development of poker across Asia, and this new room will be its heart,” said Joe Hachem, Poker World Champion and member of Team PokerStars Pro. “It has been extraordinary for me to watch the growth of poker culture in the eighteen months since the PokerStars.net Asia Pacific Poker Tour first brought poker to Macau, and I’m so excited about playing in my third APPT there in August.”
