Some of poker's best known names from the west are looking east for a chance at winning big. PokerStars Macau recently announced the June 5 HK $1 Million (US $130k) buy-in GuangDong Ltd Asia Millions (GDAM) tournament at the City of Dreams casino. There was never any doubt that the regional super high rollers would show up. Now we can confirm the train from the western world is filling up.
