      MACAU, CHINA, August 8, 2011 – The Macau Poker Cup: Red Dragon attracted 195 runners to PokerStars Macau at Casino Grand Lisboa for Event 3: Deepstack

      The Monday night tournament was the biggest field so far in the 9-day poker celebration where the field sizes and prize pools are only expected to grow as the week approaches the Red Dragon main event which runs from August 11-14.

      “It’s been a solid start to the Macau Poker Cup but the numbers will really hit fourth gear beginning Wednesday.” said Dom Choi, Team PokerStars Pro Manager. “We’ve already confirmed a record 63 online qualifiers to the main event and there are still more satellites running. The buzz surrounding the Red Dragon and High Rollers event is tremendous.

      The Deepstack event will play down to 22 players who will advance to Tuesday’s Day 2 final. All Day 2 players will be in the money for a piece of the HKD $260,715 prize pool with the winner receiving HKD $63,900.
