September 1, 2016 (Macau, CN) – Both the Poker King Club and REX Fortune are delighted to announce today their first foray into joint live tournaments with the opportunely-titled REX Cup – Battle of the Nations. The event will commence from September 23rd to 24th, 2016 aboard the REX Fortune Cruise.

Poker King Club, a longtime purveyor of world-standard poker events in Asia, as well as the acting poker consultant of REX Fortune, will act as presenter for the tournament – which plans to pit teams of six from different nationalities against each other in a high-octane battle of teamwork and wits. The two-day festivities will consist of two events: a HK $15,000 + 3,300 group buy-in, Battle of the Nations Event, which will potentially have teams joining in from Hong Kong, Macau, Manila, and Mainland China, followed by a HK $3,000 + 600 NLH Deepstack Turbo event for the second day.

Jason Lo, Vice-Chairman of the Hong Kong Poker Players Association or ‘HKPPA’ and a member of Team PKC, has confirmed their team to be heading the group from Hong Kong. When asked what he thought about the tournament being in his home-base this time, this is what he had to say: “I have been in the game for four years now and have been part of many tournaments all over the world, but this will be a first time for me in Hong Kong. It’s a great feeling, being part of the Hong Kong team and a representative of Team PKC, and I plan to make both my city and my sponsors proud. We are all very excited for the upcoming opportunities both Poker King Club and REX Fortune bring. Hopefully, this is only the beginning for poker in Hong Kong”.

The event has received the full support of the HKPPA, with a team of seasoned poker veterans already in place to join the battle. Flanking Jason Lo for the HK Team includes Sparrow Cheung, Kinglune Lau, Raiden Kan, Kit Kwok, and Nigel Chau.

REX Fortune Cruise will be hosting the event on one of its luxurious, nine-deck cruise ships. The setting provides a unique backdrop for the REX Cup – Battle of the Nations, one overlooking the stunning Victoria Harbour. Visitors would be pleased to find that the cruise has been fitted with enough entertainment options to sustain the whole trip, including a Karaoke Lounge, a fully-fitted Gymnasium, and a Sauna/Massage area, which offers professional body and foot massages done by experienced professionals.
