Asian Poker Tour Announces 2008 Schedule

by Lou on April 1, 2008

The Asian Poker Tour announced its 2008 schedule with four events beginning in the Philippines from May 27 to June 1 and followed by similar events in Macau (pictured left), Asia’s gambling capital, South Korea, and Singapore—the last leg of the Tour.
Each tournament will offer a $1 million guaranteed prize pool, along with internet qualifiers to ensure that online players can enter through affordable satellites.

The opening APT leg in Manila will feature 400 players and six days of poker. The buy-in is $2,500—but the online satellites will include an all-expenses paid trip as well as the buy-in.
Similar prices will be set for the other three events, though venues and dates for the last three events have yet to be announced. From the four events that will take place this year, the Asian Poker Tour plans to expand to a total of six events in 2009.
