Follow the money! Asia is the newest epicenter for poker on the planet. PokerStars announced the 2016 tour schedule for the Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT). Hard to believe that the APPT is now 10 years old!
The opening event kicks off very shortly with the Macau Millions at the City of Dreams casino in Macau.
The biggest stop will be at the Aussie Millions in mid-January, hosted at the swanky Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia.
Other countries in the mix for 2016 include both South Korea and the Philippines. South Korea will host the APPT Seoul in April at the Paradise Walkerhill Casino. Meanwhile, the City of Dreams casino in the Philippines will host a pair of events… the Manila Megastacks event in May and the APPT Manila during the summer.
Danny McDonagh, APPT President and former legendary tournament director of the Aussie Millions, mentioned, “The APPT is entering a very significant tenth season. To celebrate this milestone we are excited to offer the biggest guaranteed prize pools in history for the Macau Millions and Macau Poker Cup.”
