The METRO Teams Up With Pokerstars!

The METRO MAIN EVENT slated for this weekend, Dec.8-9, has been officially moved to Jan.26-27. Although it might be an inconvenience to some who have already cleared their schedules (and we apologize for it), the good news is, POKERSTARS, the world’s largest online poker site, has teamed up with The Metro to make the event bigger and better than anybody expected!

Pokerstars, in cooperation with The Metro, will be presenting the first event of a series of major poker tournaments for 2008. Tentatively called “The Poker Master’s Tour”, it will be the biggest poker series the country has ever seen. Pokerstars aims to adopt existing major local tournaments like The Metro Main Event all throughout the year which will then culminate into a “Philippine Championship” that will coincide with The APPT Manila 2008 sometime around the last quarter of the year.

Just to spice things up, Pokerstars will be providing TV coverage complete with a TV table with hole cameras, just like we see on Poker shows everywhere. They are dedicating a 1 hour show that will be aired on cable TV featuring the METRO MAIN EVENT.

Also, they will be providing online freerolls and satellite tournaments for local poker players to win a seat to the Main Event! By signing up at, players can join these tournaments and win their seat in the satellites. There will be an estimated 30 seats up for grabs into the P30,000 buy-in Main Event, which you can win for free!

The series of tournaments (starting with The METRO MAIN EVENT) will end in a major tournament estimated to have a 10 MILLION peso prize pool just in time for APPT Manila 2008.

This great tournament just got even better, thanks to Pokerstars. Make sure you are ready to play in the biggest local event in poker this country has ever seen! Again, seats are limited, so make sure you get yours asap! Stay tuned for further announcements about the online tournaments.

See you at the METRO!

Quote of the Day

  • The best poker I've ever played has always entailed peace. A relaxed comfort. Eyes open, ears open, radar up. Absorbing my opponent's every message. Taking them as they come. Not mixing what those messages are with what I want them to be. It's like an aerial view. A view from above the myriad luck-dependent reactions of those many people who never gain such a peace. And when you gain that view, that peace - when you'd rather have the truth, no matter how disappointing, over a false hope, no matter how desirable - then you're a player. The hand you're on slips into a stream of thousands of other hands, no one of which, because of your lofty view, seems unduly important, no false fearful emotions rise within you. When you gain the peace of lofty perspective, you're a player, and when you're a player, you're free.- from "King of a Small World" by Rick Benett
