Tags: Macau, Scam, Singapore
Posted on 17 March 2017 by "K".
Two female Singapore nationals have reported to police that they were scammed in an alleged investment scheme in a casino VIP room in Macau, according to the Macau Judiciary Police (PJ) last Monday, March 6.

The unpleasant incident started last year in Singapore, when the two ladies met with a 52-year-old male local of the city-state who informed them that he owned a company in Macau that operates a VIP room inside a casino. He then encouraged the two ladies to invest in this kind of business since it has potentially high revenue.

The women’s interests were piqued, and so on December 18 last year, they journeyed to Macau where the suspect took them to a VIP room of an unnamed casino, in which he claimed belonged to his company.

Besides that, "patpatman" likes to play deep at the highest tables and seems to master both NLHE and PLO. Also, he has been making some comments in the chat about current games in Macau.

According to a Danish poker news site, Gus Hansen has once again returned to Macau and joined players such as Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Sam "tri1cky7" Trickett in games where millions of dollars can change owner in just a single hand.

The Danish news site has been in contact with Hansen ever since he arrived in Macau and they report that he has played in games as high as $1,3000/$2,600 with a $5,000 straddle. But things haven't gone so well for Mr. Hansen so far. A big chunk of Gus's losses is due to a hand against Tom Dwan in which he failed to bluff with a HK$1.7 million bet on the river.

Gus Hansen and Sam Trickett are both back in Macau and apparently there are some massive games up running at the moment. According to Hansen's blog, he lost a massive 12 million Hong Kong dollar pot (about 1.55 USD) in one of these games.

"As expected my second session here in Macau was a bit more ‘swingy' than the first one. Unfortunately ‘The Swinger Party' was somewhat expensive as I rarely had the best hand at the river and tried one too many bluffs! I am currently playing my third session here in Macau and things were looking mighty fine until a 6 handed pre-flop pot turned into a 12 million (Hong Kong$) heads-up battle. As the smart reader has already figured out - I didn't win it "

The finnish poker star started the year by losing $ 3,000,000 at the online tables, but the curve has since turned into $ 1,500,000 in plus. Among other things thanks to a German Limit expert.

With the recent stories from Asia's gaming mecca Macau, it is just before the $ 2,000 / $ 4,000 Fixed Limit Hold'Em may sound a bit boring.

But still quite entertaining when there is a long heads-up match between Patrik Antonius and the German 'IHateJuice' - the player who Phil Ivey doesn't even feel like he has an edge on.Read more » Antonius wins 504.000$ HU
