To celebrate the summer season, The Poker Circuit (TPC) will be turning up the heat this May as it will be holding a poolside-themed poker tournament in Angeles City, Philippines.
Aptly titled “Wild ‘N Wet”, the Php 500,000 guaranteed tournament will be held from May 14-16 at the Wild Aces Poker Sports Club in Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines. The buy in for this event is set at Php 3,500 with an entry fee of Php 400 with re-entries on the two starting days.
The TPC "Wild n’ Wet" tournament will feature a deep stack structure: 15,000 in initial stack with 30 minute rounds. There are a few additions: A dinner fee of PhP 100 will be optional. If players avail of the dinner, they will get 5,000 more in chips. For players that make it to Day 2, an add-on of PhP 1,000 will be available for 40,000 worth of chips.
If that weren’t enough, TPC founder and tournament director Lloyd Fontillas is looking to make the tournament a truly summer event.
“TPC Wild n’ Wet event will put a twist on poker by adding a bit of sexy to the game: tables will be set up pool side, dealers in bikinis, a taste of the sun, and open air – if the weather will permit it, of course,” he said.
He added, “The Poker Circuit’s event in Angeles, Pampanga is in line with its vision of providing poker players around the Philippines with a world-class tournament. The event will also include seats to upcoming bigger tournaments in the country.”
According to Wayne Bangsil, the General Manager of Wild Aces Poker Sports Club, they did a similar event last year which was aimed at the players within and around Angeles City. They hope to reach out to a broader market and show what they are doing for the growth of poker in the Philippines by working with The Poker Circuit.
Wild ‘N Wet will be an Asian Poker Tour (APT) accredited event. Players that cash in will be part of the APT Accredited Events Leaderboard. For more information, click here.
