Genting Poker, the UK provider for land based casinos and resorts, is gearing up for the 2011 Poker Players Championship. Just northwest of England, Genting is testing an enhanced RFID poker table at the Circus Casino in Liverpool.
While the surface of the table may look just like any other, inside hidden RFID technology monitors and tracks the movement of playing cards, which then gets relayed to support streaming coverage of the tournament.
The RFID technology enables viewers of the tournament to see exactly what cards have been dealt and replaces any need for hole cameras. Viewers can also see the hole cards and the flop, along with the percentage chance of winning the hand.
This feature table will be streamed on a 15 minute delay at www.gentingpoker.com throughout this year’s tournament.
