Already the world's largest online poker room, PokerStars typically doesn't think small when they get into a venture. When they place a guarantee on a tournament, they want it to be massive. When they host live tournaments, they make sure the events run smoothly.
So it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that when PokerStars decided to enter the competitive world of brick & mortar poker rooms, they didn't want to get involved with just one room at a time.
Earlier this month, the Casino Gran Madrid's poker room was refurbished and branded as a PokerStars LIVE room. In March, the Hippodrome Casino in London will open with the same branding.
This week, PokerStars announced that they will launch a third PokerStars LIVE room at the City of Dreams Macau. The room will offer cash games and daily tournaments, and it plans to become the location for several of Asia's most prominent poker tournaments.
No official launch date has been released as of yet, but one thing is certain - the presence of this room will further heighten the appeal of Macau as a premier vacation spot for poker players.
