PokerStars Macau announces second annual ACOP festival

It seems like only yesterday that PokerStars LIVE Macau launched Asia's first HK $100,000 (US $13,000) Main Event but the second annual Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP) is just around the corner.

Scheduled for October 18-November 3, the ACOP has doubled the Main Event guarantee to HK $20m (US $2.6m) this time around.

The 17-day poker festival will feature 11 ACOP Title Events - which are also Official Asia Player of the Year events - that will award winners the coveted silver spade trophy. The Main Event champion will receive the prestigious golden spade trophy.
