This July saw immense prize pools, large pots, many all-in's, cunning strategy and new poker champions at the latest Emerald Poker Series (EPS).
After a gruelling three days and nights of competitive poker, Jamie Vilela, Max Sartirana and Diana Svensk emerged as the respective High Roller, Main Event and Turbo winners. All EPS poker events were based on the popular No-Limit Hold'em format.
"With close to R3 million in payouts and as many as 180 entrants, this, our latest EPS, has been one of the most successful EPS events to date, with the number of entrants increasing compared to the last event," says Tanuja Gangabishun, Emerald Resort & Casino's Marketing Executive.
"Poker itself and poker tournaments across South Africa are becoming more and more popular and competitive," confirms Tanuja. "This increase can be attributed to increasing prize pools attracting professional poker players nationally. The popularity of this card game can be seen in the numerous local poker tournaments throughout the year."Emerald Resort & Casino. Tel: 016 982 8000
