The tournament will be held at the Solaire VIP Level 2 in Solaire Resort and Casino, Manila from June 9 – 13, 2016, and will feature all the hallmarks of a Poker King Club event that the brand has become known for. These include a number of well-structured events, created specifically for the client base, a number of amazing, tailor-made prizes and trophies made for the event, and a whopping 4,000,000 PHP guarantee.
During a recent interview, here is what Poker King Club President, Winfred Yu, had to say regarding this milestone in PKC’s venture into live-tournaments:

“The overwhelming response we got from the players who joined our first event in Manila gave us a very optimistic outlook regarding our event and the further development of poker in Manila. This is why it was an obvious choice to have our first standalone event in Manila. We are optimistic that it will gain popularity and followers that would want to follow it, so it’s not just another event.”
