Developer LongRunn to build $4.2 billion casino city on Yeongjong Island, S. Korea

LongRunn International Group (“LongRunn”), investor and developer of large-scale Integrated Resorts (IR), landmark real estate developments, infrastructural and environmental projects in Asia, has reportedly penned a deal that will see it build a 76,000 square meter multi-resort complex on Yeongjong Island in Incheon, South Korea at a total cost 4.5 trillion won (US$4.2 billion). The island is home to the Incheon International Airport, which was built on reclaimed land between Yeongjongdo and Yongyudo Islands. The Incheon Bridge connects the island to the mainland and provides direct access between Songdo and Incheon International Airport. According to globalconstructionreview.com (GCR), a website of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), under the terms of the deal, which was reportedly signed on Sunday in Singapore, the Chinese developer agreed to purchase a parcel of land on the manmade island for $80 million to be used for a $4.2 billion development to be named “Diamond City.” Incheon Free Economic Zone Commissioner Kim Jin-yong, reportedly said that the new contract would aid Yeongjong Island in competing with the likes of Las Vegas and Macau. CGR reports that according to LongRunn, the billion-dollar development will feature a casino and a seven-star hotel, as well as office towers, schools, malls and a medical centre specializing in cosmetic surgery. Additionally, the development will also be home to theme parks, a K-pop hub and an “interactive world cultural avenue”. LongRunn has reportedly been in discussions with the Korean government regarding the development since 2014. Upon completion, Diamond City will neighbor the partially opened casino and hotel complex, Paradise City, developed by Paradise SegaSammy Co., Ltd, a joint venture between Sega Sammy Holdings of Japan and Paradise Co., Ltd. of South Korea.

Greg Kolo Wins WSOP Circuit Seminole Casino Coconut Creek $365 Pot-Limit Omaha Re-Buy

Casino News Daily
Greg Kolo Wins WSOP Circuit Seminole Casino Coconut Creek $365 Pot-Limit Omaha Re-Buy

Ohio-based player Greg Kolo became the latest winner of the ongoing WSOP Circuit Seminole Casino Coconut Creek stop. The player entered a $365 Pot-Limit Omaha Re-Buy event on Wednesday to eventually win a gold ring and $13,806 for his efforts late last night.

The winner said that he hopped into the tournament to win some points for the Player of the Year leaderboard. Then he ended up with the title and the gold piece of WSOP Circuit jewelery.

Kolo bested a tough field of 39 entries. However, most of the participants took advantage of the $100-worth re-buy option. As many as 191 re-buys were recorded and that heated action at the host casino even more. A prize pool of $30,800 was generated eventually and was split among the top four finishers.

Kolo entered the unofficial final table third in chips with approximately 38 big blinds. Joseph Irgon was the chip leader at that point with 46 big blinds left. It was eventually fellow former ring winner Matt Stout whom Kolo faced heads-up.

Heads-Up and Other Highlights

Under original plans, play for the day was scheduled to be stopped on Level 18 of the event. The two heads-up finalists reached that point in action but opted for an additional level, hoping to determine the winner during it. And that additional level lasted only several minutes before Kolo finished off his final opponent.

On what turned out to be the final hand of the evening and the tournament, chips went in post-flop. Stoud had two pair and a straight draw against his opponent’s pair and a flush draw. Kolo completed his flush to eventually scoop the title at around 3 am in the morning. Stout collected $9,240 for his runner-up finish in the Pot-Limit Omaha event.

Kolo won his first WSOP Circuit gold ring. However, he has one more piece of WSOP jewelery, a gold bracelet from the WSOP in Las Vegas. He captured it during the 2014 edition of the series for winning a $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold’em tournament. He also received $169,225 for his performance. To date, the player has collected nearly $380,000 from both WSOP and WSOP Circuit winnings.

After his victory last night, Kolo told WSOP Circuit staff that he actually entered the event chasing Player of the Year points. The season-long leaderboard grants seats into the season-ending Global Casino Championship to the 50 players who accumulate the most points throughout the season, and Kolo is looking to lock a seat and try his luck in the major event, which is set to take place this summer. The Pot-Limit Omaha the player entered and eventually won gave him the chance to rack up some points and increase his chance to accomplish his goal.

Earlier this season, Kolo finished runner-up in another Pot-Limit Omaha event, a $580 one. The player mused last night that he could have won the tournament, which took place at Horseshoe Hammond, if he had not lost a big hand for a lot of chips.
