The chips are down for the next Emerald Poker Series

Are you "all in"? With a potential of over R2 000 000 to be won, the ever popular poker series EPS (Emerald Poker Series), and round two for 2016, will once again be held at the picturesque Emerald Resort & Casino from 28 to 31 July 2016.

This popular poker series draws some of the top professional poker names from across the country and has borne witness too many battles over the last few years.

"It is the thrill of big time poker coupled with the excitement of big prize money and poker fame," says Tanuja Gangabishun, Marketing Executive at Emerald Resort & Casino. "During the EPS's first round, held in February, Gareth Kalil walked off with the top prize. Will he manage to retain the title or will we be crowning a new champion?"

The following EPS events (all in the No-Limit Hold'em format) have been scheduled:

Free Roll

It is important to note that all players need a drivers licence or ID to register for an Emerald Rewards card, which is available from the guest relations desk. An Emerald Rewards card is required to take part in the tournament. Entry and payment can be made at the cash desk on the day at Emerald Resort & Casino

Should players want to register to the Free Roll or any additional information, call or email Elme on 083 553 0238 or respectively.

"Poker is game where players are presented with limited information and progress by finding a statistical or psychological edge and we're looking forward to another full house this month.

Fame and fortune awaits. May the flop be with you!" concludes Tanuja.
