World Series of Poker Africa at the Emerald: Six Coveted Tournament Rings

By FOCUS REPORTER

PRESTIGE and lots of money – not to mention coveted World Series of Poker
(WSOP) jewellery – will be up for grabs at the forthcoming second WSOP
Africa tournament at the Emerald Resort and Casino.

The tournament, which takes place at the Vanderbijlpark casino between 21
and 26 February, consists of six ring events: one WSOP Championship ring for
the Main Event winner, and five WSOP Circuit rings for the satellite events.
And then there’s a WSOP Circuit pendant, to be presented to the winner of a
special ladies’ event.

The WSOP Africa events are as follows:

.         A two-day No-Limit Hold ‘Em event, starting on 21 February. The
entry fee is $50, and the buy-in $300

.         A two-day Six Handed No-Limit Hold ‘Em event, starting on 22
February. The entry fee is $60, and the buy-in $500

.         A two-day High Roller No-Limit Hold ‘Em event, starting on 23
February. The entry fee is $400, and the buy-in $10 000

.         The three-day WSOP Africa Main Event, starting on 24 February. The
entry fee is $300, and the buy-in $3 000

.         A No-Limit Hold ‘Em event, starting on 25 February. The entry fee
is $50, and the buy-in $300

.         A one-day Turbo No-Limit Hold ‘Em event, taking place on 26
February. The entry fee is $50, and the buy-in $300

.         The Ladies No-Limit Hold ‘Em event, taking place on 26 February.
The entry fee is $35, and the buy-in $200

In addition, four Mega Satellite events will be held between 21 and 23
February – and the more players participating in them, the more seats in the
Main Event will be won. And then there is also a celebrity charity
tournament to be held on 23 February.

“Anyone who knows poker, also knows that winning a WSOP ring is one of the
greatest possible achievements in this sport – and we’ll have no fewer than
six to give away during WSOP Africa,” says Emerald Resort and Casino CEO
Martin Rice.

“A WSOP ring’s value extends far beyond its intrinsic value. What it says
about its owner is that this is a person who has won membership to the
elite, exclusive club of WSOP winners – and there aren’t that many of them
around.

“So if you want to join the exclusive ranks of WSOP winners – and boast your
very own WSOP ring – then there’s only one place to be between 21 and 26
February: the Emerald Resort and Casino,” says Rice.
