Here is a cool story about an RFID Poker table.
LIVERPOOL, England -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Genting Poker has today announced that it is testing its first RFID poker table at the Circus Casino Liverpool ahead of the live streaming of the Genting Poker Players Championship 2011.
On the surface it looks like a regular poker table. But hidden inside the table is a system of hi-tech RFID electronics that tracks the movement of playing cards, and superimposes that information on to a live video feed. The cutting edge technology, identifies exactly what cards have been dealt and replaces any need for hole cameras.
The feature table will be streamed on a 15 minute delay at www.gentingpoker.com throughout the tournament, showing viewers the hole cards and the flop, along with the percentage chance of winning the hand. Just like late night poker TV!
To launch the new RFID table, GentingPoker.com has today launched a unique ‘refund freeroll’ worth a guaranteed £10,000, at the Circus Casino, Liverpool at the end of this month.
Gentings innovative ‘refund’ freeroll tournament plays out from 30th June to 3rd July 2011 paying the top twenty players. Places are strictly limited to the first 600 entrants and to secure a place players simply register online at GentingPoker.com. A £10 + £0 buy-in secures a seat, but that deposit is fully refundable to every starting player.
There are 3 starting days, with flights capped at 200 runners per day. Players receive a full refund of their deposit, £5 on the day they play at the club and £5 to their online account after the tournament finishes.
The only way to register for this tournament is online, at Circus Poker or Genting Poker. This is a sensational freeroll, and the tournament can be found in the gentingpoker.com ‘Exclusive Live Events lobby’. Registration closes at 7:30pm on the day.
Find yourself playing on the feature table and the online world will be watching your every move. No pressure!
