PokerStars Championship Macau: Team Pros & StarsFun

March 16, 2017

We’re just two weeks away from the March 30 start date for the inaugural PokerStars Championship Macau. If you haven’t already checked out the action-packed schedule then you should take a look here.

While your goal will surely be to compete and win one of the glorious PokerStars titles, you’d be doing a disservice to yourself by not taking part in some of the many activities on offer during the 11-day series.

You’ll be able to enjoy all the normal offerings from a Hard Rock Café in addition to a pool table, XBOX One games, and a variety of board games.

The Hard Rock Café Players Lounge will be open daily from 11am-2am.
