The Much Anticipated Malaysia Poker Tournament In Casino De Genting

I have got my Genting WorldCard. It has finally arrived. Last week actually. I was ecstatic as i took it directly from my postman's hands after 2-3 weeks wait. I would not have bothered to apply it if not for the much anticipated Malaysia's first freeroll poker tournament.

I have previously posted about the poker tournament in my previous post Malaysia casino redux. I was also asking on the type of Genting WorldCard needed to qualify as there are different statuses to each WorldCard. However as new information surfaced, i am not that happy anymore.

One of the pokermalaysia forum members personally uncovers the details to the Malaysia poker tournament:

Genting Poker Challenge
Date: 7 - 9 December 2007
Time: 8.00pm onwards
Venue: Casino De Genting
Prize money: RM 50,000
Entry fee: 1 (one) Genting Point
Members Card Type: Green and Silver

Genting Premier Poker Tournament
Date: 14 - 16 December 2007
Time: 8.00pm onwards
Venue: Casino De Genting
Prize money: RM 150,000
Entry fee: 5 (five) Genting Points
Members Card Type: Silver and above

*Places are limited to 300 pax per tournament.
*Two tournaments are open to Genting WorldCard Members only and they
need to have Genting points in order to participate.
*Thematic card (eg Awana,
Coffee Bean, Theme Park etc) is NOT an acceptable entry card type.

More info :
The dealers will be professionally trained by Mr Savage's team. On tournament, there will be no front (check in) money as Genting will be providing free bankroll (initial capital) for members to participate. The mode of play is Texas Hold 'Em and there will be three rounds of play: Preliminary, Semi-final and Final. The process of elimination will apply until the final 10 players.

As you can see, you need to collect points to be able to play in the tournament. But is the card i received belongs to 'thematic card'? I can use it to change to green status? Another news is that those tournaments are upon invitation only? Seriously, i have lost faith and interests. Are you trying to be funny, Genting?
