PokerStars Live at The City of Dreams opens Friday

After months of anticipation, the 'PokerStars LIVE at the City of Dreams' poker room will finally open its doors to the world come Friday, April 19 at 3pm.

The Macau Poker Cup (MPC) will launch the cardroom and runs from April 19-28. The 18th installment of the MPC is expected to be the biggest ever, as the HKD $11,000 Red Dragon Main Event will boast a HKD $5,000,000 guarantee in celebration of their new home.

The Red Dragon tournament currently holds Asia's record for biggest tournament field after 635 unique players took part in the event in February, 2012. But all signs indicate that this record may be broken in just over a week's time once the final tally comes in for the popular regional tournament.

Team PokerStars Pros Bryan Huang, Vivian Im, Raymond Wu, and Celina Lin have confirmed their attendance along with Taiwanese music-superstar MC Hotdog - if you're not familiar with the PokerStars sponsored rapper then check this video out.

The ten-day schedule will contain nine Official Asia Player of the Year (APOY) events, including the HKD $5,500 NL Hold'em and HKD $20,000 NL Hold'em tournaments that come with guarantees of HKD $500,000 and HKD $1,000,000 respectively.
