2011 Macau Millions Schedule Announced

Posted at 10:36 2011-02-11

Back by popular demand, the PokerStars Macau poker room at the Casino Grand Lisboa is once again set to break all records in the Asian poker region with the 2011 edition of the Macau Millions, set to be held from April 2-10.

With a guaranteed prize pool of HKD $1,500,000 (AUD $190,590) and the opportunity to play in not one, not two, but seven Day 1 flights, last year's mark of 741 entries is set to be shattered. Add to that the fact that it's an official Asia Player of the Year event, plus daily HKD $300 (AUD $39) satellites and you've got yourself a poker tournament of epic proportions. Team PokerStars Pro Celina Lin agrees...

“There's every reason to think that the PokerStars Macau at the Grand Lisboa will be the first to cross the 1,000-player mark,” Lin said. “Two years ago, players put up $10,000 for a million-dollar guarantee in the Red Dragon event. They're now awarding more prize money [in the Macau Millions] at a fraction of the entry fee!”

The repechage format of this event is unique to others that you may have played in the past and works as follows.

Each Day 1 flight will play down to the top 7% of the field and the players who make it through to Day 2 will also make the money and will take home at least HKD $8,000 (AUD $1,016). You can play as many Day 1 flights as you wish, however, if you make it through to Day 2 more than once, you'll only take through your biggest chip stack. However, for each stack that is removed, you'll receive HKD $8,000 instantly – cha-ching!

Of course, if that wasn't enough to whet your whistle, there are five side events, including two deepstack events, a KO Bounty Event and two rebuy events, plus two APPT Next Event satellites. Macau Millions? More like Macau madness – because you would be mad to miss out, especially when you can get even more value for money by qualifying for free at PokerStars today!
