About


Over the next few months poker enthusiasts and professionals stand a chance at winning their share of an estimated prize pool of R5 million in the Showdown at the River Poker Tournament, hosted and presented by Emerald Resort & Casino.

 In the runup to the Showdown at the River Poker Tournament between 22 October- 1 November, Emerald Resort & Casino’s casino floor will be the new home for everything poker related as satellite tournaments will be announced after Cyril’s speech 25 July to give everyone a chance at qualifying for the big buy-in tournaments in October.

Brought to Emerald Resort & Casino by the MonsterJam Poker Tour (MJPT), the Premier Poker Tour in Southern Africa, the Vaal tournament brings something for everyone, ranging from Freeroll satellites to High Roller buy-ins of R40 000.

With the Resort being just a short 45-minute drive from Johannesburg, why not take the entire family for a ‘poker vacation’? There are plenty of amenities and fun activities for the whole family and accommodation specials that are reserved for poker players.
