Genting Casino and Living It Loving It celebrates 50-years in the casino business by hosting a £50,000 Super High Roller event in the Genting Palm Beach Casino in Mayfair
Genting Casino turns 50 this year. To celebrate they are hosting a £50,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em (NLHE) Super High Roller event at the Genting Palm Beach Casino pitched in that purple patch on the Monopoly board that always hurts when you land on it.
Living It Loving It is the exclusive promoters for the event and is working diligently behind the scenes to fill the chairs with the right combination of world class players, Palm Beach regulars and very rich businessmen and women.
The event has been christened The 50/50 Genting Super High Roller. It will take place over three days between Mon – Wed 5-7 October. The event will start at noon each day, starting stacks will be 100k, levels will consist of 60-minutes and it will be a re-entry event. Poker players will be encouraged to give as well as take. On Wed 7 Oct there will be a £500 CHIPS for Charity tournament. 50% of the prize money will go towards a new wheelchair for a disabled child. It’s hoped to raise £6,500+ for the child in need, so be fruitful with your giving.
The Genting Palm Beach Casino has a strong track record of hosting Super High Roller events. In 2013, Philipp Gruissem defeated 20 entrants in the £100,000 NLHE World Poker Tour (WPT) Alpha 8 event winning £862,400, and last year Dan Colman won the £60,000 NLHE World Poker Tour (WPT) Alpha 8 event winning £600,000.
Those two final tables included the likes of Tobias Reinkemeier, Max Altergott and Talal Shakerchi: all London residents, and the type of players that Living It Loving It will be hoping are going to be interested in playing in this unique and celebratory event.
Genting fans at the lower end of the pay scale had better exchange London’s Mayfair for Scotland’s Edinburgh. The Genting Poker Series (GPS) has just kick started its Edinburgh Festival, culminating in a £440 Main Event on Fri 2 Oct.
