Another High Roller title for Rolands Norietis at Jeju International Poker Tour; Main Event underway

Jeju International Poker Tour

Cards continue to fly at Jeju International Poker Tour as it enters its fifth day at the Jeju Oriental Hotel & Casino in Jeju Island, South Korea. If you are just hearing of this event, it is the first by the new brand and it has already broken bounds. For the first time, Korean nationals are allowed to play alongside international players in the country though with different methods of entry.

Foreigners can buy in directly at the venue whereas Koreans prepare for JIPT several days in advance without direct cash transactions and register with the tickets / vouchers aka “seed” won at local poker pubs.
