Six bucks made Adrien Allain almost half a million dollars last year, as he parlayed a PKR Satellite into the Asian Poker Tour Macau title. With the APT back for another year and satellites going on at PKR, it’s your chance to turn a small stakes online buy-in into live poker glory.
Previous Main Event winners on the APT include Allain, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, David Saab, and Neil Arce, who is a native of the Philippines, and will return to defend his home country’s championship.
We’re just two months out from the 2010 APT Manila Main Event, which will be held at Resorts World Manila from August 25-29. Resorts World has fast become the market leader in the Philippines with luxury accommodation, a 300-table casino boasting daily shows and entertainment among a bevy of gambling options. The 2010 APT Manila is sure to bring Asia’s biggest poker stars to the Philippines to duke it out for what is sure to be a juicy prize pool.
The APT schedule is bustling with a wide array of tournaments and live satellite options that are certain to boost the Main Event prize pool. The undercard includes a Teams event, a Bounty event, a Shootout event, a $10,000 buy-in High Rollers event, and enough short-handed tournaments for any lagtard (both seven and six-handed tournaments). Just to add to the smorgasbord of poker action is the fact that on demand satellites and sit ‘n go tournaments will run throughout the series. The SNGs will range from $100-$500 buy-in, while the satellites are priced at $320.
Three of the major online poker sites including PKR, Party Poker and Titan Poker will be offering satellites to the Philippines in the coming weeks, and you can get there for as little as $2.10. It couldn’t be simpler to win your way to APT Philippines. Simply download PKR for all the details and get on your way to the riches in the Philippines.
