Gerardo Gil Alim, the Operations Manager of PokerStars LIVE Manila said, “The previous Manila Megastack tournament was huge with Singapore’s Ignatius Ee Joo Meng beating a field of 696 entries to win the series’ biggest payout of PHP 4,000,000 (~INR 54.38 Lacs) in the Main Event. We look forward to players joining us at our new home at Okada Manila for another top-class tournament.”
The 9th Manila Megastack Main Event was held in May this year, and also had couple of Indian players in the mix. Dilip Ajitkumar Menon made a deep run in the Main Event, finishing 26th in the end and cashing out about PHP 98,000 (~INR 1.27 Lacs).
