An insight in Macau's Nosebleed Cash Games

Tags: Cash Games, High Stakes, Macau, Tom Hall
Posted on Tuesday, March 04, 2014 by "T".
There has been a lot of talk about the high-stakes cash games in Macau in the past few years, but, unfortunately, the information on these cash games have mostly been speculations and rumours as many of the players taking part usually aren't willing to share their stories. However, there are a few stories (from credible poker players) that reach the public once in a while. On Monday, Irish poker [...]   Read more » An insight in Macau's Nosebleed Cash Games

This really is an insane amount of money and its not difficult to see why Macau is overtaking Las Vegas as the gambling capital of the world. You could easily retire from work by just winning one pot!

Now instead of going to vegas, people are going to Macau lots of stuffs changed since USA imposed online bans, not much player pools going to the casinos, they just stop gambling and in the mean time Macau is overtook vegas. they deserve it. Macau generating lots of revenues now!

Tom Hall is very explicit on the way he explains his way of watching all that real high stakes activity, i can’t imagine how would i react for seeing so much Money being played at a single table. And in the end he turns really funny when he says that, after watching all that action, he decided to go and play $1/$2 PLO. How boy, how bad could it be to loose $200 on that night after looking at those guys?

Think that Macau already is the place where high rollers prefer even more than Las Vegas.I can only imagine why this is happening ,perhaps tax rules or something like that. Personally I believe that Macau attracts super rich businessmen from Asia(Singapore and Hong Kong) who likes lot of action. So professional poker players just following the money. In addition they believe that there are weaker and more loose players .
Talking about money to those players honestly think is without point.What can u say to high rollers and super rich guys who are gambling?Imagiine yourself :you never played your's monthly wage to a single day?I think this quite the same to them with the point that this is their's proffesion.

Cool - not really giving too much away but interesting to see some of the amounts involved, the sort of hands generating monster pots etc.

Macau already beated Vegas in terms of values in one single table, the difference keeps on the interest of media and given to media by those two big cities in what concerns to this. Yesterday i heard about a low cost fly company talking about flights between Europe and USA. Can you imagine the amount of people (hundreads of thousands) who would go for a trip to Vegas having a low cost flight? And the money would all go to the tables. But it's all a matter of marketing. How much does it cost a flight from Europe to Macau? More than to USA, even nowadays.

I would spend at least $1M on some serious looking body guards, like enough for a whole football team if I was walking about with that crazy cash on me.

You'd think it would be a criminals dream to pick off rich poker players.

A 5.1 million dollar pot is just sick, i know that so far were rumors about 10 or more million dollars between Tom Dawn and other Macau players and frankly i did not it was true.

Too bad that those games cannot be filmed or made public, i think the tv audience would be sick, much higher than on any current poker show.

Yeah people would watch it without a doubt but the mysticism of it would vanish and it would take away from the sort of gritty 'underground' aspect of Macau poker.

As for a $5M pot - bananas. But if you have $50M in a bank then it isn't quite so bad, or more. You have to be a money junky to be gambling like that.
