The Genting Malaysia Poker Tournament is a mega-tournament, held annually, with a capacity of up to eight hundred players. This year’s tournament was won by Doyle Brunson, who went on to win the world poker tour championship three years in a row. The Genting Malaysia Poker Tournament is a direct competition against other poker rooms in Malaysia, which include the regular Star Poker and Hi-Lo. The aim of the Genting poker room is to be the most popular poker room in the country. In this article I want to tell you about the withdrawal process, which took place during the tournament.
As with every other major poker tournament in the initial stage is the qualification stage. For the Qualifier Stage, all winning poker players receive an equal number of chips, and must enter a qualifying game, in order to be placed in the tournament proper. For the Qualifiers, the winner receives an additional bonus of two hundred thousand Malaysian Ringgits.
After the Qualifiers have competed in the preliminary rounds, the top twenty players in the table are chosen for the final round. These players are then given the opportunity to play against one another, in what is known as the Elimination Round. In the Elimination Round, players receive a point for each game they win and lose a point if they draw. The player who loses the most amount of points during the Elimination Round becomes the eventual winner of the tournament. Players can either accept their loss or try to win back as many as possible. If a player wins a certain number of points during the entire Elimination Round, they become the lifetime champion of the game.
As mentioned above, players can either accept their loss or try to win back as many as possible. If a player is unable to win back any of their opponents during the entire tournament, they will be deemed to have forfeited their win, and will not be eligible to play in the next Malaysia Poker Tournament. A player who wants to keep their win qualifies to play in the next tournament. However, it is important to note that the higher you place, the greater chance you have of being able to retain your win.
After all of the initial play has ended in a winner, the player with the most poker chips at the end of the day wins. In a normal online poker room, this would be the room’s final prize. However, in a poker room in Malaysia, this is changed to the “keratin”. This is a much more stable form of currency and makes a better investment than the regular paper money that one would receive in a normal poker room.
After the tournament, the player with the most bonus points wins a free trip to any one of the five recognised poker rooms in Malaysia. The players are also treated to a buffet dinner (worth about $20 per person). This is usually organised by the hotel that the players are staying in or by one of the major poker rooms in Malaysia. There are usually a number of promotional events held, which offer all of the players one last chance to earn some bonus cash before the tournament starts. These promotional events are not intended to prevent the player from winning, but to encourage them to play even more poker!
A major promotional event is the annual Gold Cup Poker Tournament. This tournament was the preeminent poker tournament in Asia until the late nineties and still attracts hundreds of players. At the last tournament, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, players earned the right to participate in the “Millionaire List” by playing a minimum of fifty hands. Many players qualify to win the “Millionaire List”, but do not earn their status as a “millionaire” by actually winning the tournament. However, many of the top players still play in the “Millionaire List” every year, to try to qualify for the big final at the World Poker Tour in Las Vegas.
Malaysia has a great selection of fine poker rooms, including the well-known ones like the Para- liquidity and the Coral Reef Club. These players all have highly competitive payment policies, and nominal entry requirements. Players can get free entry into the tournament; however, they are expected to make some contribution to the eventual prize money. Some of the major tournament winners have played in the Hong Kong-based World Poker Tour and have won significant cash there. With such a large player base, and an established payment scheme, it is not surprising that the Malaysia poker tournament is one of the most popular.
