I think it's there already, all pros are going there because there you can find a lot of rich people that like to gamble Blink

Still, this tournament will not be accesible for "us" unfortuantely...

"The goal is now to get 500 participants, with one third coming from the Far East, third from the U.S. and one third from other countries, said William Murray, adding that the first prize at a prize pool of $100,000,000 will be $25,000,000."

so 25000000 for first place

we can expect many chinese businessmen to play this tournament, as not many poker players can afford that high buyin.

Time to start a new staking thread...
Stake- $200k
Games- 1 x $200k 500man Sushi special
% share 50/50 + Terracotta Warrior

Or, is it best just to organise a game like this, 1 mill in fees, nice.
