APT Announces Three More Events for 2013

After an already impressive start to the year , the Asian Poker Tour has announced plans to hold at least three more events this year. The first half of 2013 has  seen the Asian Poker Tour stage three highly successful events. The year started  with the APT Asian Series Cebu in January, followed by  the APT’s inaugural event in Korea – the APT Asian Series Jeju. In April, the Asian Poker Tour Philippines returned to Resorts World Manila.

The Asian Poker Tour’s home in Macau, the StarWorld Hotel

For the second half of the year, plans are underway for the most anticipated event on the APT calendar – Asian Poker Tour Macau. Last year saw the tour’s return to the world’s gaming capital with the Main Event attracting 268 entries. Taiwan’s Carlos Chang took home the title and HK$ 1,913,100 in winnings. Pending and subject to approval from Macau’s governing body, this year’s event is scheduled to take place from July 24 to 31 at the StarWorld Hotel’s Grand Ballroom. Check out the APT Macau 2013 Event Details.

Korea’s Jeju Island

In August, the APT will return to the island of Jeju, this time with its main brand, for the Asian Poker Tour Korea. In partnership with the Club Phoenix, the six-day event is scheduled to be held from August 18-23. It may be a slightly shorter schedule – 6 days – but there won’t be any lack of action as the APT is putting together a bevy of tournaments throughout the event week.

Resorts World Manila – host of the upcoming APT Asian Series Manila 2013

October will then see the APT’s second event for the year at Resorts World Manila for the APT Asian Series Manila. Featuring a PHP 50,000 Main Event buy-in and a host of Side Events, which in the past has attracted record player numbers for an APT event.

Current APT POY Standings Leader Minsoo Kim

Running alongside these events is the exciting APT Player of the Year. Reigning POY Sam Razavi ended last year with a huge lead over his closest rivals in the race. This year may be a different story as current standings leader Minsoo Kim is less than a hundred points ahead of Tetsuya Tsuchikawa and Ben Abrahams, second and third respectively. Check out the current APT Player of the Year standings.
