Far East Asia Poker Information
Monday Jan 23rd, 2017
While Poker is not as big in the East as it is in the west, it certainly is growing. The two major tournaments here are the Asian Poker Tour and the Asia Pacific Poker Tour. Both have a big following and the circuit is getting bigger and larger every year. You will find both The Asian Poker Tour and Asia Pacific Poker Tour stopping in most of the following countries: Cambodia, Macau the Philippines, even mainland China.
If you're looking for quick games (inside the poker rooms of casinos) - then its a little trickier because not all Asian casinos have live poker. If you're in Macau, no doubt, you're in luck. But still you need to check to make sure they have tables before booking. Some of the best places in Cotai are going to be PokerStars Live Macau at the City of Dreams or the Venetian's Poker Room. In the City of Macau, You have Poker King Club in the awesome Galaxy StarWorld Casino, or right next door you can find good games at the Wynn Poker Room. We wouldn't recommend anywhere else currently.
In Cambodia there is Queenco Poker which has a really hopping although small poker room with No Limit Holdem, Omaha and more. It seems like quite the scene over there (if you have not, check out some of the threads at twoplustwo forum!).
Gambling in the Republic of Korea will turn up a poker game or two if one were looking for a poker game. Many of the casinos cater to poker players as the game is gaining acceptance here in Korea as its popularity grows.
In addition to NL Texas Hold'em, Omaha and Stud are gaining in popularity. Obviously Pai Gow and some other Asian varieties are alls quite popular. Far East Asia poker games follow the same rules as do poker games in other parts of the world.
