For nearly three years now, the Big Game poker games in Macau have been making the mass of amateur players fantasize. It is very difficult to have concrete information about these คา สิ โน ออนไลน์ บน มือ ถือ sessions because the players who participate in them remain very discreet. There is a good reason for this discretion: the amounts involved are staggering …
The Biggest Games of Poker
One of the rare players who communicate a bit about Macau and its high stakes games is Tom Hall, nicknamed HongKong Tom, who has been attending these games for a few years and does not hesitate to give some reports.
We know that the blinds at these games are very high, ranging from $ 4,000 / $ 8,000 up to $ 12,500 / $ 25,000 for the most impressive. Hall is a regular in this Big Game, which initially had blinds of $ 130 / $ 260 – which did not prevent this player from losing $ 1 million during his first session …!
Known regulars for this Big Game are Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, John Juanda, Johnny Chan, and a few others. According to Hall, there are about 150 regulars, including a dozen who come almost every day.
Tons of Money But Relaxed Atmosphere
Recently, Tom Hall communicated on a session where more than $ 20 million were on the table. Sometimes it can happen that a player loses or wins some $ 10 million in an evening. By cons despite the amounts committed, the atmosphere at the tables is generally very nice and relaxed. He explains that the Slow Roll – “technique,” which consists of making his opponent wait before showing him the obvious winning hand (very frowned upon in general) – is done fairly regularly but in a good spirit.
