The cruise liner M/V Leisure World this weekend played host to the largest Leisure World Poker Series since its inception, smashing all attendance and prize-pool records; truly a fitting way to herald the third anniversary of what was, exactly three years from the day, the first LWPS.
47 players clawed through an opening day field of 174 to earn themselves a spot in Day 2 of the Main Event, and an opportunity for a share of the juiciest prize-pool in LWPS history. Leading the charge on the 2nd Day of competitive play were Gordon Black, Neo Zhi Han, and most notably Deric Lee, who began the day in pole position with a massive chip advantage.

A long, exciting, and at times arduous Pokerkaki League season was brought to a close with the Grand Prize Finale.
22 of the league's finest set up to do battle on a balmy Sunday evening, all with their eyes on the Macau Poker Cup Package, courtesy of the Pokerkaki League. All the players needed for eligibility was to finish well in the league across any of the given 4 months, and to attain a Silverstar status in any of these months. The rules permitted for a maximum of 32 players in the Grand Prize Finale, but also allowed players who had qualified in the early months to block off slots by doing well in subsequent months.
