Resorts World Manila (RWM), one of the sponsors of the upcoming PAGCOR Chairman’s Cup tournament, will be giving players plenty of chances to win seats to the event via two new promotions at their poker room.
The first promotion will be single-table satellite tournaments which will be held on weekends. The tournaments will start on Friday, February 19, at 8:00 pm and will continue every Friday to Sunday before the PAGCOR Chairman’s Cup.
Unlike regular satellites, though, there will be a guaranteed overlay. The buy-in for the ten-player tournaments will be Php 10,000 with a seat to the PAGCOR Chairman’s Cup at stake. That makes for a total prize pool of Php 100,000 — less than the actual value of a seat, which is valued at approximately Php 125,000.
The second promotion at the RWM poker room will be a lucky draw raffle in which seats to the Chairman’s Cup will be given away.
For every Php 5,000 that players use to buy into any cash game at the poker room, a raffle ticket will be awarded. On March 19, a draw will be held at RWM and five players will win seats to the PAGCOR Chairman’s Cup.

The PAGCOR Chairman’s Cup, officially titled as the First PAGCOR Chairman Efraim C. Genuino International Poker Tournament, will be held from March 20-25, 2010 in Manila. Top poker players from the Philippines and around the world are expected to participate in the main event, which is guaranteeing a prize pool of US $1,000,000. Buy-in is set at US $2,500 + US $200.
