The Hendon Mob Championship Closes Out 2023 in Two Continents
Later this week, our team will travel to the fourth continent to host The Hendon Mob Championship (THMC) in 2023. For the first time ever, there will be a THMC event in Africa but it will also be our first event in the southern hemisphere. We have joined up with the SunBet Poker Tour by MJPT for the upcoming SunBet Poker Tour Cape Town. THMC Cape Town Million kicks off on Sunday, November 26th at GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World with an R8,000 buy-in and R1,000,000 guaranteed.
Just days after THMC Cape Town Million concludes, the team will relocate to Banco Casino Bratislava to join The Festival in Bratislava to host the final THMC event of the year. This will be the third collaboration between The Hendon Mob and The Festival in 2023. The two-day THMC Bratislava event gets underway on November 30th.
Of course, both events will feature a custom THMC trophy for the champions and custom THM profile badges for those lucky or skilled enough to score a cash.
R1,000,000 Guaranteed THMC Cape Town Million
The first of three starting flights for THMC Cape Town Million is set for 5 PM local time on Sunday, November 26th. The event carries a buy-in of R8,000 with 30,000 chip starting stacks and 30-minute levels. Unlimited re-entry is permitted through the first nine levels on Day 1. Day 1B and Day 1C will play out on Monday, November 27th at 1 PM and 7 PM respectively.
The event will play down to a winner on Tuesday, November 28th where at least R1,000,000 will be divided among those fortunate enough to make the money. The final day will feature a live-streamed final table.
The festival as a whole has R10,500,000 in guaranteed prize pools including a R4,000,000 guaranteed Main Event. Along with the Main Event, two of the major draws will be the High Roller and Super High Roller. The former boasts an R1,500,000 guarantee while the latter has R2,000,000 guaranteed. That means there is a lot of extra money up for grabs throughout the remaining events with a Welcome to Cape Town event that boasts an R500,000 guarantee, followed by another R1,000,000 guaranteed event in the R25,000 Mega Million.
