n the surface it looks like a regular poker table, but hidden inside the table is a system of hi-tech RFID electronics that tracks the movement of playing cards, and superimposes that information on to a live video feed. The cutting edge technology identifies exactly what cards have been dealt and replaces any need for whole cameras to enhance the broadcast.
The feature table will be streamed on a 15 minute delay at www.gentingpoker.com throughout the tournament, showing viewers the hole cards and the flop along with the percentage chance of winning the hand. Just like late night poker TV. To launch the new RFID table, GentingPoker.com has launched a unique ‘refund freeroll’ worth a guaranteed us$ 16,151, at the Circus Casino, Liverpool at the end of this month.
The innovative ‘refund’ freeroll tournament plays out from 30th June to 3rd July 2011 and pays the top twenty players. Places are strictly limited and the first 600 entrants can secure a place by registering online at GentingPoker.com. A us$ 16 + us$ 0 buy-in secures a seat, but that deposit is fully refundable to every starting player.
There are 3 starting days, with flights capped at 200 runners per day. Players receive a full refund of their deposit, us$ 8 on the day they play at the club and us$ 8 to their online account after the tournament finishes.
