The ACOP series will run between October 13th and 29th at PokerStars Live Macau, and the Main Event will have the biggest guarantee in Asian history, in a series which is renowned for offering the richest prize pools. There will be a total of 24 events making up the series, with the Main Event commanding a HK$100,000 (USD$13,000) buy in fee. Buy in fees for the other events vary between HK$1,000 and HK$800,000.

ACOP drawing in the crowds

Thousands of players showed up for ACOP 2016, with close to HK$100 million ($13 million) being paid out across all the events. This was a marked increase on 2015, which gives organisers serious reason to be hopeful when it comes to this year’s turnout. Vladimir Geshkenbein stole the show last year by winning the Main Event for HK$5,630,000 in a tournament that is always awash with talent, and is regarded as one of the most coveted titles to win on the Asian live poker circuit.
