Despite the light turnout at the Asian Poker Tour Macau the cash games are some of the biggest in history as Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, Chau Giang, and John Juanda are playing HK$5,000-10,000 with some Chinese businessmen. The game plays much bigger and there was about 40 million on the table last night when I saw the game.

Tom Dwan made it through day one in the 5K main event but only came downstairs to play one hand 10-4 off suit in an attempt to bust and get back to the cash game but instead he doubled up and asked me to call him as soon as he was under 20 BB's. We are down to 35 players and paying 18.

Juanda is the biggest winner in the game so far. Durrrr, Ivey, and Chau are stuck a combined few million HK$. When I asked Dwan when he was moving here he said "very soon".

I read that limit games are still illegal in Macau due to some technicality in the "Poker in Macau" thread, so I imagine it's only NLHE and PLO.

Limit is cruel and unusual punishment.

Definitely going to be the home of the worlds biggest games in the future, a whole new ocean of rich/egotistical/stubborn/clueless/degen fish

So I imagine the table would play like a team 4v4 or something? I don't see durrrr and Ivey tangling when they could be outplaying the locals in a much more +EV way
11-12-2010 , 09:27 AM
