The World Poker Tour (WPT), a group founded in the US and which organises international poker tournaments, has announced that it will host two events in Cambodia around New Year, the organisation said last week.

The WPT National Thailand tournament will take place at the Holiday Palace Casino and Resort in Poipet in late December with a $1,100 buy-in.

The National Cambodia tournament will be held at Queenco Hotel and Casino in Sihanoukville in early January with a buy-in of $1,485.

Wondering how much if anything Sihanoukville will get out of this ? Does this kind of event bring tourists and money to the town, or is it just 50-100 ? (no idea of numbers) guys that go and hole up at Queenco casino, spend all their money on the premises for how ever long it lasts, and then leave town ? Or do the players bring along wives or girlfriends who go shopping, go out to high-end restaurants, splash out on a resort etc ? Just curious how this works.

lots of people turned up but unfortunatly the staff did not have a clue about it

i heard the organiser was ringing up local poker people to find out where they were.probably at other poker games
