TwoPlusTwo user, "Webjoker", who claims to be a pokerblogger and that his "boss is good friends with Patrik Antonius", reveals some new information about the Big Game in Macau.
The user tells, that he was yesterday at the Starworld casino in Macau, where they were just starting a $5,000/$10,000 HKD game (1.00 HKD = 0.128266 USD).
"Guy Laliberté was there with a hot girl on his side and I saw Johnny Chan sitting. They were just setting up the table but one of the guys from the casino brought in a wooden box with more plaques of $500,000HKD and $100,000HKD than I've ever seen before in one place.", Webjoker tells.
Pokerblogger tells also about a rumor, that Patrik Antonius tried to get in the Big Game but wasn't allowed.
"I left after that but heard from my friend who was playing a HKD$1.000 sit&go that Antonius tried to get in but wasn't allowed.
He told me that he was watching a hand where a good American player (he recognized him but didn't knew his name) got allin on the flop for a $3 million HKD pot with ace-king versus jack-ten on three-eight-nine.
Two bricks later he scooped the pot and the Chinese businessman reloaded by getting some plaques from his side-table where he had a total of HKD$7,000,000 laying around.
Also heard, from a very reputable guy, that foreigners have to pay back 20% of their winnings in some cases to the casino.", Webjoker ends his interesting post.
