Asian Poker Tour Closes Out 2012 With A Trip To India

Posted at 11:00 2012-11-29 by Matthew Pitt

The Asian Poker Tour 2012 (APT) rounds off a terrific year by heading to a brand new destination on Dec. 3.

APT India will take place between Dec.3 -9 aboard the Casino Carnival, which is anchored on the Madovi River in Goa. This will not be the first time the APT has called Goa home – this will be third time the APT visits the Indian city – but it will be the first stop where higher buy-in tournaments are being played.

During APT India there will be a total of seven events played, the highlight being the APT India Main Event. This tournament will cost INR 150,000 to enter, which works out to be approximately AUD$2,600, and should see some big names take part.

One such name will be the United Kingdom’s Sam Razavi whose performances in the Asia-Pacific region during 2012 have been nothing short of phenomenal. It is unsurprising that Razavi is the man to catch in the APT Player of the Year standings. It would take a small miracle for the popular eccentric Brit to be knocked off his top spot, but anything can happen in this game we all love.

The last time the APT visited Goa, a crowd of 158 players paid the INR50,000 (AUD$650) but it was local player Sangeeth Mohan who stepped ashore from the Casino Royale with the coveted APT tropy and the INR2,346,400 (AUD$40,500) first place prize. With an increase in buy-in the first place prize should — in theory at least --- also increase, though even if it stayed the same it is not an amount to be sniffed at.
