The WSOP might be just around the corner but it seems a number of the world’s best players are thinking about Macau before Las Vegas.
Thanks to PokerStars’ latest Super High Roller event a host of familiar faces will be joining the festivities in Vegas a little later than expected. After announcing the GuangDong Ltd Asia Millions, set to take place in PokerStars Live at the City of Dreams in Macau, PokerStars has received more than 50 pre-registrations from players across the world. Indeed, when the $130,000 Super High Roller kicks off on June 5 it will feature the likes of Isaac Haxton, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Jonathan Duhamel and . The flurry of interest in the event has been sparked by the organisers’ predictions that it will become the largest Super High Roller event outside of the WSOP. Last year a similar tournament was held in Macau with 73 players, including Sam Trickett and Phil Ivey, anteing up the necessary $260,000 to play. On that occasion it was Stanley Choi who scooped the top prize of $6,465,746 and this time around the organisers expect at least 100 to take part in the tournament.
