PokerStars Live Manila Super Series 9 Announced

Posted On 06 Sep, 2018 0

In recent years, the number of poker tournaments and series in Asia have been rapidly increasing, especially in the preferred locations of Macau and Manila. A number of events are constantly being added to the Asian poker calendar, with PokerStars Live being one of the biggest players in the region.

They host several series in Asia and one of their most popular tournament series is the Manila Super Series, with eight successful editions of this series being played out already. Earlier this year, the Manila Super Series 7 was hosted in May-June, while the Manila Super Series 8 was played out in July.

Now, PokerStars Live took to their Facebook page to announce the Manila Super Series 9, scheduled between 1-7 October 2018 at the City of Dreams Manila. Yes, if you were wondering, PokerStars will also be awarding one PSPC (PokerStars Players Championship) Platinum Pass at the series, worth $30,000.

There are a few highlight tournaments in this series, but only the winner of the PHP 3 million GTD Main Event will be awarded with the Platinum Pass, for a chance to play in The Bahamas early next year. The Main Event will have the same guaranteed prize pool as in the previous two editions of the Super Series.

List of Manila Super Series 9 key tournaments:

  • Warm-up Event (PHP 1 Million GTD) Oct 1-3, 2018
  • Megastack Event (PHP 500k GTD) Oct 3, 2018
  • Main Event (PHP 3 Million GTD) Oct 4-7, 2018

Just recently, APT also announced that they will be shifting their season-ending APT Finale series from Macau to Manila, so there's going to be a lot of poker action in Manila during this latter part of the year. The full schedule of the Manila Super Series 9 isn't out yet, but you can keep reading for an update when it is announced.
