This main event will be an historic occasion as it marks the first time an Asia-based main event has had a buy-in the equivalent of USD$10,000.

The ACOP begins with a HKD$10,000 buy-in Deepstack Championship, a three-day event that guarantees at least HKD$1,000,000 will be awarded in prizes. Other highlights include a HKD$8,000 buy-in Six-handed Championship; a HKD$25,000 ACOP Warm-Up tournament and a HKD$250,000 High Rollers event that is sure to attract some of the biggest names from across the globe.
