KKLIVE TOKYO was four days of fun, laughter, community, epic poker battles and great rewards!
With over 28 diverse tournaments, there was poker action for all and the opportunity to meet fellow KKPoker community members.

KKLIVE TREATS, PRIZES & BONUSES
Winning prizes at the poker tables was not the only reward for the KKLIVE attendees!
The inaugural appearance of "KK Gacha" marked a significant highlight of the tournament. The KK Gacha Machine was a complimentary, oversized gacha machine exclusively for players. The grandeur of this gacha machine exceeded expectations, even surpassing the height of most individuals!
The free-to-spin gacha machine, offering substantial rewards, garnered immense popularity during this event, and we were excited to present this activity for everyone to enjoy, enhance the fun atmosphere, and captivate everyone's imagination.
This edition introduced a delightful café as a relaxation spot during intermissions, with refreshing drinks and snacks to enjoy without stepping outside.
The inaugural drink menu addition, "KK Latte", featured a latte art rendition of KK's emblem—the shield logo! KK's attention to detail even extended to the beverages served during breaks! Notably, the Matcha Latte was recommended, boasting the colors synonymous with KKPOKER.
KK PHOTO BOOTH
This being the third year of KK's LIVE Series, the momentum and expansion continued. Participants at the event aimed to create lasting memories alongside their accomplishments. To cater to this desire, a photo booth and a limited edition photo frame were thoughtfully set up at the venue.
In today's digitized landscape, where photography is easily accessible, opportunities to revisit each snapshot are growing scarce. With this photo frame on display, reliving the essence of a KKLIVE summer becomes attainable to be viewed at one's home!
Anyone familiar with live poker understands the strain prolonged seating can impose on the body.
Throughout the competition, a commendable body massage service was accessible at the venue, ensuring attendees' comfort. If you're considering participation next time, fret not about the physical toll!
Our aspiration is for your mind and body to remain supple, ensuring optimal readiness for the competition.
