PokerStars LIVE Macau Tournaments

Asia Championship of Poker

Asia Championship of Poker

'PokerStars LIVE at the City of Dreams' will host the 2014 Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP) from October 24-November 9. This year, the 17-day series has 14 ACOP Title Events and features the HKD $100,000 (USD $13,000) Main Event which boasts a whopping HKD $15,000,000 prize pool guarantee.

ACOP Title Events

The focus for most players will be on the prestigious Main Event. However, all tournaments with buy-ins of HKD $8,000 and above, as well as the Rebuy Championship, are considered ACOP Title Events.

In terms of historical significance, these titles will be the measuring stick for all-time achievements at the ACOP. The winners will receive a special ACOP Title trophy in recognition of their accomplishment.

Regular Events

If you love poker but don’t have a big bankroll, that shouldn’t stop you from coming to experience the thrill and excitement of the ACOP. Many ACOP Title Events will also have a lower-buy-in version of the same tournament that ranges from HKD $1,000 to $2,500.
