The Hendon Mob Championship, SunBet Poker Tour Heading to Southern Hemisphere

The Hendon Mob Championship (THMC) is heading south. No, not south as in Florida. South as in South Africa, along with the SunBet Poker Tour for an R1,000,000 guaranteed tournament in Cape Town.

When the THMC Cape Town Million kicks off Nov. 26 it ends Nov. 28 it will be the first THMC event in Africa. The tournament, part of the SunBet Poker Tour by MJPT series, runs Nov. 22 to Dec. 3, All the poker action will take place at GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World.

There are three Day 1 sessions scheduled in the THMC event one of Nov. 26 and two the following day. On Nov. 28, remaining players from the three opening flights will merge together and play down to a winner before the day ends.

Major Poker Series in Africa

The SunBet Poker Tour by MJPT has 12 events on the schedule with a total of R10.5 million guaranteed. That includes the THMC Cape Town Million, an R8,000 buy-in tournament, and a number of other juicy poker tournaments.

The biggest event of them all is the R4,000,000 Main Event, a R15,000 buy-in no-limit hold'em tournament beginning Nov. 29. There will be four Day 1 Main Event starting flights, including two on Dec. 1, one day prior to the Day 2 session. The final table is scheduled for Dec. 3, and that will wrap up the series.

In between the start of the series and the Main Event, there are some big events, including the series opening R8,000 Welcome to CPT, which promises at least R500,000 in the pot.

Weve been working with Marc Joseph and the SunBet Poker Tour for over six years, and were excited to take this partnership to new levels, said GPITHM Head of Partnerships Roland Boothby.

The fact that we will see a THMC in the Southern Hemisphere in 2023 demonstrates the global reach of the GPI/THM brand and its position as the live poker authority. Knowing that we are heading to Cape Town with Sunbet Poker Tour and MJPT is a testament to Marc, who has set about creating the premier poker tour in Africa, and we couldnt be happier to be linking up with them in one of the world most stunning cities. We hope to grow the Cape Town Million at Sunbet Poker Tour Cape Town into a staple event on the global poker calendar.

The Hendon Mob, poker's ultimate live tournament database, envisions making this event a staple on the poker calendar each year. Global Poker Index/THM have a longstanding partnership with the MonsterJam Poker Tour (MJPT) and together support efforts to grow the game in Africa.
