Tuesday night was party night for the PartyPoker players and our special guests. The venue was beside the pool at the brand new Hard Rock Hotel in the City of Dreams resort complex over on the other island here in Macau. This place was an excellent venue for the party and the players had a great time.
To start with we all had VIP passes for the new attraction called “The Bubble” which was a very exciting yet unusual 3D cinematic show a little bit similar to an IMAX cinema.
Up at the poolside, there were cocktails served in pineapples and coconuts and some delicious Asian food for everyone to enjoy. The players were really enjoying the relaxed atmosphere, the balmy evening and the music beside the pool. Rumour had it that a Saudi oil sheik was also having a private party on the other side of the pool.
When a group of very tall models arrived and walked over there we realised that was probably true. Either that or The DevilFish was in town. We had our own beautiful girls in the shape of some of the Asian Poker Tour models enjoying themselves at the party and Team Party player Ian Frazer wasted no time in introducing himself to them.
The management at the City of Dreams very generously gave each player a HKD$200 free credit to use in their casino downstairs. Some of the players were very keen to get downstairs and try their luck. Others went off to a huge party held at “Cubik”, one of Macau’s hottest clubs. I am sure there will be a few sore heads tomorrow.
Luckily there is not much poker action on Wednesday except for the Battle of the Nations – a 3 person team event which starts at 17:00 local time. With several teams representing countries from all over the world it will be a very popular and well supported event.
