The METRO Teams Up With Pokerstars!
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 Pokerstars.net, 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!
