It’s Jeju, Korea for the return of the Red Dragon!

by Gutshot Admin Posted on 03 Sep, 2019

Red Dragon is back with its thrilling action before the year ends! PokerStars LIVE recently made an announcement that Shinhwa World Resort – Landing Casino in Jeju, South Korea is making way for the return of very popular Red Dragon JEJU 2019 from 9-15 November 2019.

The 2019 Red Dragon is a 7-day live poker event featuring 18 tournaments that comes with a KRW 1 Billion ($827K) guarantee for the Main Event and KRW 300 million ($248K) guarantee for Baby Dragon Event. Due to the freezeout format the tournament stands out from various other poker series in Asia.

The previous year’s Main Event attracted a total field of 613 entries setting a record for the biggest ME field in Korea’s live poker history. The massive field was beaten by China’s Yuechan Shi who became the Dragon Slayer to take home a stunning amount of KRW 266,060,000 (~INR 1.68 Crores).

Owing to the attractive prize pool, players from all over Asia, especially India, are highly expected at the Red Dragon 2019. Although the previous year’s tournament witnessed a handful of Indian players, only Sumit Sapra qualified to make it to Day 2 of the ME. However, he exited the tournament in 16th place for a prize of KRW 1,985,000 (~INR 1.26 lakh) to record his first cash of the series.

PokerStars Live Jeju Red Dragon 2019 Schedule:

  1. Red Dragon High Roller (Shot Clock) – November 9 to 10 – KRW 5 million
  2. Red Dragon Main Event (KRW 1 billion GTD) – November 10 to 13 – KRW 2.5 million
  3. Baby Dragon (KRW 300 million GTD) – November 13 to 14 – KRW 1.5 million
  4. Red Dragon Super High Roller (Shot Clock) – November 14 to 15 – KRW 10 million

ICE Chairman, Stanley Choi stated about their expansion in various Asian and Korean nations, saying, “We are also exploring Korea that will be our next target. There’s a big casino there with 3,000 rooms that’s opened up last month. There’s another one opening in Vietnam, opening in 2019, that I’m looking at.”

The event has come a long way since its inception in 2008. The ultimate focus of the series rests at the Final Table and the magnificent Red Dragon Trophy. Keep reading GutshotMagazine.com for more updates regarding poker news from around the world.
