New Poker Room in Metro Manila

I received a text message announcing the opening of Planet Poker. They're located at Wilson St., San Juan City, beside Zirko Greenhills. I don't have much information about the place but it's good to know that there are other poker rooms opening. It'll just spread the community faster. Hopefully they're able to provide good tournaments and fair policies. That's all the players ask for.

Metro Saturday Freeroll

Last Saturday, I decided to play the Metro Saturday Special. I thought it was at 2pm so I was there early. Apparently, the tournament was changed to 3pm.

So I decided to play 10/20 to while away the time. In 3 hours, I won 4,000 which was enough for the tounament buy-in and the rebuy. I just love it when that happens.

Unfortunately, I busted out early. And I realized, I haven't played well for the whole day. I was chasing all my draws and calling with bottom pair. Maybe it's because of being away from the felt too long.

The Best Online Poker Room

PokerStars have just released another promotion to give players reason to reload. If you use the PokerStars Reload Bonus Code RF300, you will get a chance to join their daily freerolls and the final freeroll. A total of $300,000 will be given away in these freerolls.

This is just one more reason to play at PokerStars. And if you don't have a PokerStars account yet, feel free to create a PokerStars account here.

The PokerStars Bonus Code for 2009 is still valid for first time depositors.

Manny Pacquiao Poker Tournament

According to Philippine poker oracle, Del Ty, there will be a P250k guaranteed Manny Pacquiao Poker Tournament at the Asia Poker Sports Club on June 12, 2009. Buy-in is at P5,000+P500 and 10 places will be paid. They set a cap at 10 tables of 10 players each but they didn't indicate if alternates will be used. However, it was announced that the people's champ, Manny Pacquiao will be present at the tournament.

There are daily satellites with a buy-in of P200.

Asia Poker Sports Club is at the 5th floor of the Pan Pacific Hotel, M. Adriatico St. cor. Malvar St., Malate, Manila.

I probably won't join the tournament because I'm saving my money for the Metro 5 Million guaranteed this July but we'll see.
