The GDAM tournament will run from June 4-7 and will take place in  Macau at the ‘PokerStars LIVE at the City of Dreams’ poker  room. It will feature a Main Event from June 5-7 with a buy-in of  HKD $1,000,000 (USD $130,000) with two HKD $1,000,000 rebuys  allowed.  There will also be a HKD $250,000 (USD $32,500) Warm-up  Event on June 4. 

“This is going to be the one of the most amazing poker  tournaments of all-time,” said Danny McDonagh, Director of Live  Poker Operations for the Asia Pacific for PokerStars. “We are  expecting over 100 players to sit down and play and one of the  biggest prize pools for a poker tournament outside of the World  Series of Poker. It’s going to be seriously huge! ”
