Circuit’ successful first stage

Sun Dreams-KSOP partnership showed all its strength in Camboriú High Rollers

KSOP Camboriú, held at the Infinity Blue Resort & Spa, was the first stage of the 2019 King Series of Poker. The festival had US$810,000 guaranteed and was attended by executives from Sun Dreams, South America's largest casino operator and main sponsor of the KSOP High Rollers tournament circuit this year. 'This partnership gives us the opportunity to enter this market with the name and brand of the company,' said Celina Guedes, VIP Manager at Sun Monticello Casino.

Celina Guedes (VIP International Manager of the Sun Monticello Casino) Edgardo Ortega (Commercial Assistant), Leonardo Deniz (Corporate Tables Director) and Enrique Aliquoo (Sun Monticello Tables Manager) were present at this important event.

"Partnering with KSOP, a company that is growing very fast, gives us the opportunity to enter the name and brand of the company. A poker tournament with this hierarchy is an ideal place for Sun Dreams to expose in Brazil the advantages of visiting and betting in our casinos throughout Latin America, as we have 20 establishments in Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Panama, among others," explains Celina Guedes to Games Magazine Brasil.

Last year, Sun Dreams had sponsored stages through prizes of 10 packages for 2 people each with all included (travel, lodging and food) so that the winners know the Hotel & Casino Sun Monticello in Chile. For this 2019 edition, the Group raised its level of sponsorship to the tournament with high economic support in exchange for better brand exposure.

"I came last year already, but in this edition I'm even more surprised because the hall was full of players, packed. It was all incredible and we want to support even every step. One of the objectives with the support of KSOP is to promote our brand, give visibility to our casinos and show the Brazilians that there are even better casinos than Iguazu and Punta del Este. Sun Dreams is a destination with quality service, variety of games, gastronomy and fun for the whole family," added the executive.

"The KSOP team is very professional, experienced in tournaments and with great potential for international expansion. The Brazilian market and its players have worldwide recognition for their volume and playing quality," commented Leonardo Deniz, Corporate Manager of Gaming Tables at Sun Dreams.

In order to begin the 2019 season with a golden key, the first KSOP tournament in Camboriú showed the strength of the festival. The R$ 2,500 (US$675) buy-in Sun Dreams High Roller Light hit the guaranteed R$ 150,000 (US$40,000) with ease by registering 108 starred multi-player national poker entries. The podium was formed by the more experienced competitors. Upon beating 108 rivals, Celso Sirtoli from Rio de Janeiro left the Infinity Blue hotel in Balneário Camboriú with R$ 45,400 (US$ 12,200).

The event was hosted by Kings Events sponsored by NS - Natan Sports / Bet 365 and Sun Dreams Casinos. In addition, KSOP had support from LBP (Brazilian Poker League) and Kings Trip - Travel Agency.
