Millions available in leading cities

The Asian Poker Tour calendar for 2008 features four events and will kick off in the Philippines from May 27 to June 1, the organisers confirmed this week. Events will also be held in Macau, Asia’s gambling capital, South Korea, and Singapore, which will be the last leg of the Tour.

Venues and dates for the last three events will be announced shortly. Each tournament will offer a US$1 million guaranteed prize pool, and there will be internet qualifiers to ensure that online players get in on the live action along with top players from around the globe.

The opening APT leg in Manila is expected to attract over 400 players for six days of thrilling poker as they vye for a share of the guaranteed $1 million prize pool. For those who don't qualify in Internet satellites, there's a buy-in of $2 500.

Poker has been booming in popularity in Asia and the APT is designed to enhance the trend.

Sponsor AsianLogic's CEO Chris Parker said: “The Asian Poker Tour (APT) will definitely be a top-class brand. This is such an exciting time for poker players in Asia and we feel that with our expertise and skills, we can make the APT a bigger and better series of events each year. From the four events that will take place this year, the APT plans to expand to a total of six events in 2009. We are continually working to set up some of the world’s most exciting and prestigious poker tournaments.”

Online gaming company ESL-Asia, a subsidiary of AsianLogic, has taken over the APT and will organise all the online and land-based tournaments, as well as brand management. ESL-Asia will also oversee the APT’s plans to launch their own online poker rooms in the months ahead, where internet players can improve their skills and win money.
