The Perfect 10 is a No-Limit Texas Hold’em Freeze-out Poker Tournament which will feature a guaranteed pot of Php10 Million. That’s roughly $200,000 into the pot. It may not sound as big as some pots like in the World Series of Poker, but that’s by far going to be one of the biggest pots in the history of Philippine poker.
In any case, it’s a huge tournament that will expect a lot of Philippine poker players to compete in 4 days of poker from March 12 to March 15, 2009 at the Metro Card Club in Metrowalk, Ortigas Center.
The poster for the tournament posted faces of some great names of those who have done well in poker tournaments in the Philippines, in Asia and other parts of the world. Most notable, of course, is Neil “Dirty Ice Cream” Arce, who was the recent big winner at the Asian Poker Tour Manila main event.
But anyway – this is not going to be about Neil “Dirty Ice Cream” Arce. This Perfect 10 Poker Tournament will be about the rise of a new champion, the next new poker millionaire as the poster goes. And without sounding too arrogant, I really sincerely believe it’s going to be me. I honestly believe I have one of the best poker skills in the Philippines, and one who has a really great read on the game of poker. This is my time. I won a satellite to earn my seat into the tournament, and will win The Perfect 10, and the top prize of roughly Php3 Million pesos.
My name is JJ Duque, and I am the champion of the Metro Card Club Perfect 10, and the new poker millionaire. 🙂
