Manila Megastack returns with vengeance


PokerStars LIVE Manila Megastack is back with a vengeance boasting its richest festival guarantee of P37,000,000 (~USD 660,400)! Now running its 18th edition, cards went flying last 15 February at the world-class Okada Manila in the Philippines and will run through 25 February.

As one of the most popular festivals by PokerStars LIVE Asia, the Manila Megastack has been steadily rising in numbers and prize pools, bringing in more international players to tackle the large local turnout.

In December 2023, its previous edition delivered record-breaking numbers with the Main Event amassing P26,582,850 (~USD 480,270). This was nearly double its past record. The title went to Japan’s Masafumi Matsushita for his maiden title and largest cash to date of P3,941,000 (~USD 71,200).

For the upcoming Main Event, the guarantee is juicier than ever. Players are now looking at a generous P20 million (~USD 357,400) starting prize pool, twice the guarantee of past editions. The event runs from 21 to 25 February 2024. Keep in mind, the buy in has also been raised to P45,000 (~USD 800).

While players await the big one, there are plenty of side events to get prepped. Players can snag a coveted PS Spade for just P5,000 (~USD 90) up to a reasonable P55,000 (~USD 980). If what you are looking for are the big pot and small field combos then high roller events are the way to go. These big buy in games start at P75,000 (~USD 1,340) to the most expensive tournament Super High Roller at P200,000 (~USD 3,575) to enter.
