High Stakes in Macau: Poker pros challenge billionaires of the city

Asian casinos became a corner for wealthy businessmen in search of an adrenaline rush. Instead of wasting their money by betting on games such as baccarat, several of them are now engaged in poker. During the Asian Poker Tour in Macau, a challenge of $ 2,500 cash game buy-in was held at the Hard Rock Poker Room in Macau, where a few poker pros including Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan, John Juanda and Chau Chiang and wealthy businessmen actively participated. The tournament director Matt Savage revealed that the competition ended in a series of cash games with huge stakes. According to information provided by Tom Hall on a forum, the meeting is mad because the game lasts 20 to 30 hours with breaks of six hours and it appears that some players have even come to stay on the gaming tables 8 hours a row without food, drink or toilet.

According always to Tom Hall, some billionaires on gaming tables became good poker players and they like the challenge against the best in the world of poker. Obviously, their competence is far from achieving the level of play of pros on table but since it is a game where luck plays a vital role, everything can happen. On balance, Ivey won $ 2 million, $ 500,000 for Tom Dwan, $ 40,000 for Chau, some regulars won $ 250,000 game while Juanda and Johnny Chan have respectively lost $ 200,000 and $ 100,000. The competition continues and at the latest news, stakes are currently amounting to over $ 5 million.
