  • The 2017 Poker King Cup Macau features 12 action-packed events along with satellites.

The Poker King Club at the Venetian Macao is well-known for its big tournaments and nosebleed cash game action. The next big festival, the 2017 Poker King Cup Macau, hits the poker room on May 18-26.

The festival features 12 action-packed events, highlighted by the six-day HK$16,500 Poker King Cup Macau Main Event, which boasts a huge HK$5 million guaranteed prize pool.

The tournament provides plenty of play. It kicks off with three opening days on May 21-23. Surviving players will compete for three more days on May 24-26 until the last player standing lifts the trophy.

Players can qualify into this year's Main Event for as low as HK$2,000 through any of the eight satellite tournaments running at the casino May 18-22.

Another big event players have their eyes on is the two-day HKD 80,000 Poker King Cup High Roller on May 19-20. Players can qualify into this event for a fraction of the cost via a pair of HK$11,000 satellite tournaments on May 18 and 19.

Taking place at the same time as the High Roller will be the HK$8,000 Poker King Cup Warm-Up, which features a HK$1 million guaranteed prize pool. Action in this tournament kicks off with two opening days on May 19 and May 20 followed by a single final day on May 21.

In addition to these three marquee events, the schedule features many other tournaments for players to enjoy. Here is a look at the complete schedule of the 2017 Poker King Cup Macau.
