Asia Pacific Poker Tour Season Two Announced

PokerStars announced Season 2 of the PokerStars.net Asia Pacific Poker Tour (PokerStars.net APPT). Spanning the region from Macau, China to Auckland, New Zealand, the tour will once again bring world-class poker action to some of the most exotic destinations and luxurious locations in the world.

Jeffrey Haas, President of the APPT, said: “Following the success of the APPT’s first season, we’re very excited to announce the schedule for Season 2 which includes a brand new event in Auckland plus increased buy-ins to create even bigger prize pools.”

The first events of APPT Season 2 are in Macau from September 1-9, including both the $25,000 HKD buy-in Main Event (approximately $3,200 USD) September 1-6 and the return of the prestigious “high roller” event with a buy-in of $150,000 HKD (approximately $19,250 USD) September 7-9. Both events guarantee a minimum prize pool of $10M HKD and will crown Asia’s next poker millionaires.

The second event on September 26-28 is a 3,000,000 KRW buy-in event (approximately $2,870 USD) in exciting Seoul, Korea at the Paradise Walker-Hill Casino. This will be followed by the addition of a $3,000 NZD buy-in event (approximately $2,400 USD) at the beautiful SkyCity Casino in lovely Auckland, New Zealand from October 9-12 – springtime in New Zealand! This season’s fourth APPT event will be in Manila, the Philippines (details TBD).

The tour culminates in December 2008 with the APPT Grand Final taking place in the fabulous Star City Casino in Sydney, Australia during the country’s scorching summer. This $6,300 AUD buy-in event (approximately $6,000 USD) will guarantee at least a $1,000,000 AUD prize for the first-place winner and be one of the largest poker tournaments in the world this year.
