Re: Best places to play live poker in Asia

Yea when there's an APT, there's drastically more action. There are 16 tables at Resorts btw. Usually there are 2 or 3 50/100nl games from 7pm-2am or so. The rest are 25/50 ($.50/1). There are literally no games running before that and usually 1 game will run really late. Other info in my post above.

25k would be about the avg for a 1 year lease for a decent 1br. Short term goes up quite a bit.

Re: Best places to play live poker in Asia

You can check local buy/sell online sites for bedrooms in that area, or just contact a broker to help you find a room in that area, 25-30k sounds about right for a long stay near RWM.

25/50 and 50/100 with up to 100/100 plo is standard. Higher games did migrate to Solaire, so you can check over there for games. However, there's far less amenities in Solaire, no mall, no cinema, etc.

More locals, some foreign blood in the mix, it's a decent room imo, no tip, 5% rake, and no house players, gtd payout, safe.

From what I know, RWM does not have 16 tables. I think they had 15 and were cut down to 12 in the last rationalization process. I may be wrong, but from my last conversation with the room manager there a month or so back, I doubt they will be adding more tables anytime soon. Unfortunately, poker is not really a high priority for RWM.

Re: Best places to play live poker in Asia

Thanks for the replies chaps.

As far as the new casino being built I think it was this place that someone just linked in the other thread.

http://www.cityofdreams.com.ph/

I may be wrong but someone mentioned a while back about a massive new complex being built so I think that's the one.

Yea, they have 12 tables. I thought it was 4 rows of 4 but it's 3x4.

Cliffs on Manila cash games

I want to return to Manila, Philippines, hopefully in October. Can anybody please give me "Cliffs Notes" on the cash game scene in Manila, e.g., rake %, cap, min and max buy-ins for the lower NLHE stakes. Aside from Resorts World, does any other poker room in the Philippines have only 5% rake?

Are the games filled mainly with locals or a mix of locals and foreigners ?

Any news on the new casino development that was supposed to be getting built in Manila ?

My understanding is all Live Poker is operated under the same organization and rake is uniform throughout the Philippines.

They all operate under Pagcor but however at least resort's world(though they have worst free servings in Philippinesasfar as I know) and Davao hold em poker club(have best free servings) had only 5% but almost all the rest take usual 10%

Caps should be same on all poker rooms(though might be bit different(higher) on PLO than texas) but depends on stakes as far as I know it is like
10/20 cap 200
25/50 cap 300
50/100 cap 400
100/200 maybe 500

Re: Best places to play live poker in Asia

I'll check it out sometime if it's still around in a month or 3. From what I heard a high ranking police officer is involved. I wonder if this is the same guys you mentioned again.

gutshot's been around for several years; don't think it's similar to the other rooms that went bust.

Re: Best places to play live poker in Asia

of all the times to play lol live poker in thailand (illegal obv), now under a xenophobic military dictatorship would be the worst. corrupt police, even ex army generals (a guy who was extorting patpong traders) are being arrested left right and centre by the junta and places raided. so the police connection isn't as valuable. they'd love to catch some young foreigners gambling. can't just bribe your way out of a spot as easily now either

have fun playing 20 hands/hr shorthanded with winning 2+2ers, i see some liking that FB page

Re: Best places to play live poker in Asia

Best poker house in Phnom Penh, Cambodia (Riverking). NL hold’em and PL Omaha games. Lots of people with major cash play there. You can call Riverking for directions . 097 66 38 233 Nightlife here is great. Cheap alcohol and lots of women!!! Great place to settle down and play poker for a living.

I have also heard good things about Riverking. I have never been to Phnom Penh. Can you please give me some more info on the other places to play live there. Like blinds, games, standard of players, drink prices, rake etc.... If you can please. Thank you

Re: Best places to play live poker in Asia

Anymore up to date info on this? I'm heading to SE Asia in March and plan to stay for a while and hopefully make some money playing live. It seems like my best bet is either Phenom Pen or The Philippines, is that still correct?

Does anyone have any info on the action/stakes in Saigon/HCM?

Re: Best places to play live poker in Asia

About Phnom Penh, River King significantly increased its rake, so you will be looking at a 20$ capped rake. Not as appealing as it use to be...

Re: Best places to play live poker in Asia

Hi Guys! I am Dan and i am also currently in Manila, Great action here i have been checking out most of the venues mentioned on this forum but i am mostly to be found at Solaire Resort and Casino, imo it offers the best and biggest cash games here in Manila, plus i am renting a cheap condo unit close by at the SM Mall of Asia Complex for about 600$ per month.

Solaire will also host a tournament starting on the 22nd of January guaranteeing a first price of 1 Million Peso. And as i heard from the manager not many tickets have been sold yet. Entry fee: 10 000 PHP which is about $ 230,- to win $ 23000,-

Re: Best places to play live poker in Asia

Hey guys, does anyone have any info about the games in Goa, India? Specifically trying to find 2-5 or 5-10$ deepstack, but am definitely curious about amounts of tables, how often games run and, of course, rake.

Cheers
