Macau is hosting for more than three years one of the biggest cash game ever organized. A few famous American poker professionals are challenging on a daily basis a group of local businessmen. Stakes have been always extremely high but it seems that these last days the game reaches another level.
The game is semi –private and it’s hard to get accurate information. Names and results are never publics. Tom Hall, one of the most reliable source regarding High Stakes in Macau, reported on 2+2 Forum few news and posted a picture of the game.
Apparently these last days, there were literally so many chips on the table that there was no space to play. Smallest stack was sitting with more than 1 million usd and casino had run out of big denomination chips. To solve this issue, players were using 5 millions HKD vouchers in paper. People played for 45 hours with 4 hours breaks here and there. According to Tom Hall, stakes has been up to $12.5K /$25k usd. Despite the amount of money played, the atmosphere was apparently still friendly with a lot of excitement including crazy river bluffs for more than $800 000 usd.
