We’ve been dishing out Platinum Passes and catching up with Super High Rollers. We’ve been hearing from the GPI’s leading lady, and from our own rock-god turned poker photographer. Here’s a gallery of all the work from PokerStars Blog’s video team here in Macau:

It’s all about the Platinum Passes these days, and here’s the first to be handed out in Macau this week. It went to Shuize Cai, who happened to be playing in his first ever tournament. Now he’s off to the Bahamas!
They throw a good party here in Macau, and this year’s APPT Macau was no exception.
