Busy October


Macau Fisherman’s Wharf is set to host a series of poker events this month, with tournament organiser Macau Billionaire Poker (MBP) announcing the first edition of its MBP 50K Fall Classic tournament will take place on October 25 and October 26 at the Babylon Casino.
The tournament will precede the 2017 Boyaa Poker Tour Macau Finals, taking place between October 28 and November 1, also in Babylon.
Organised by Hong Kong-listed online gaming company Boyaa Interactive International Limited, the five-day tournament involves a HK$6 million (US$768,082) guarantee, with the winner taking home HK$1.2 million and the top 200 players also receiving money prizes.
In July, MBP held the MBP Summer Showdown Tournament, attracting 826 players competing for its HK$20 million Guaranteed Hope Cup Main Event.
Babylon Casino is operated by Macau Legend Development Ltd., with MBP also having signed an agreement with Asia Poker Tour (APT) to bring a minimum of two international poker events to the property in the next five years.
