Macau Millions Kicks Off This Week
The tournament tables at the Grand Lisboa Casino's PokerStars Macau poker room are sure to be filled with plenty of action this week as the unique Macau Millions event kicks off on Wednesday.
Top players from all over Asia, including PokerStars Team Asia Pros Bryan Huang, Celina Lin, Raymond Wu, and Tae Jun Noh, will be looking to win big in this event, which will require a lot more aggressiveness than your usual poker tournament.
Each starting day will play on until the top 7 percent for the day is reached. The remaining players will then advance to Day 2, where they are guaranteed to be in the money.
Asia PokerNews will be covering all the poker action from PokerStars Macau as the live reporting team will be there to provide live blogging, chip counts, photos, video interviews, and more.
The schedule is made up of Days 1A to 1E. The starting days will then be followed by Day 2, where the winner will ultimately be decided. Buy-in is set at HK $2,200.

Aside from the Macau Millions main event, the scheduled HK $5,000 No Limit Hold 'em 350K Guaranteed tournament will also have a bearing on player points.
