WSOP 2012: Macao as new destination

Recently, Macau became the destination of choice for live poker professionals. The Chinese city built its reputation in the poker world by its high-stakes poker games where parties are usually played with blinds of $ 1,300 to $ 2,600. Given the success encountered by high stakes poker in Macau, the organizers of the World Series of Poker went to meet this new destination and already thought of including a stopover in this Asian Las Vegas in the WSOP 2012 program. In fact, Macau copied the "city that never sleeps" and wants to be the Asian capital to play poker is always possible. This is a program change that will surely bring some spice to the tournament.

This intention of Caesar's Entertainment to include a Macanese step of the WSOP won't surely displease professionals like Patrick Antonius, Gus Hansen, Tom Dwan and Sam Trickett who often spend their times in Macao for live games of high stakes cash game. No information has been communicated at the moment but we can expect that the step will be included in the WSOP Circuit or WSOP Asia. The World Series of Poker Circuit, however, remain the most sure as a few months ago, the tournament had the same stop in South Africa, an African country that is beginning to emerge in the middle of gambling including poker. Macao became in other words, the new Eldorado of live poker!
