Asian Poker Tour Jeju Proves Popular

Posted at 10:45 2013-02-28 by Matthew Pitt

The Jeju leg of the Asian Poker Tour (APT) looks set to attract a bumper crowd if reports from the APT website are anything to go by.

Anyone checking the APT site looking for information on Jeju is greeted with a notification that all rooms at the Jeju Oriental Hotel that were set aside for APT players at a special raise of USD$88 per night are now completely sold out. The cut price rooms have been snapped up by budget conscious poker players, although there are some competitively priced room at USD$98 and USD118 per night.

The APT Asian Series Jeju 2013 is being run inside the Royal Palace Casino, which is located within the Oriental Hotel in Jeju, Korea. During the eight-day festival there will be an array of poker tournaments taking place, the highlights being the USD$1,000 Main Event that opens its doors on Saturday 2 March, the USD$2,500 High Roller and the $10,600 Super High Roller – both High Roller being sponsored by PokerAce.

Everything is pointing towards APT Asian Series Jeju being a spectacular event, good luck to everyone participating in the coming days.
