History

The 2nd Annual MAF World Cup

August 15-18, 2013

“First we had to come to Vegas, the Entertainment Capital of the World, next we had to establish our World Cup in one of the best casinos in the World... We like what we have now, but I'd like to see over 100 players competing in our next World Cup.”
Armen Hagopjanian, Chairman of the Board of Directors

The Second Annual MAF World Cup took place at the Wynn, Las Vegas from August 15 to 18, 2013. Players from 5 different countries participated in the World Cup. Games were played in English and Russian.

The 10 players who reached the FINAL table walked away with $2,900 cash prize, and the Champion - the DON, with $3,900. But it wasn't the monetary prize that attracted our players. It was the great atmosphere, the game, and the competition on an international level that attracted everyone. It was the biggest party in MAF tournaments history, and it could be held only in the best hotel of the Entertainment Capital of the World - Las Vegas.

Congratulations to Gagik Osikyan from the Los Angeles Club for becoming the DON of the World Cup with the Best rating and excellent performance in each game. Congratulations to Armen Apoyan, the only player who reached the FINAL table two years in a row.

Congratulations to all winners at the FINAL table for great performance and classy attitude!
