Final Two Special Asia Player of the Year Festivals Announced

Posted at 17:56 2012-07-22 by Matthew Pitt

PokerStars Macau have announced they are to add a further two special events to the 2012 Asia player of the Year season; and they look like they could be two of the best live tournaments in the region.

The first of the two new additions runs between September 7-16 and is the Macau Poker Cup Championship (MPCC) whilst the second will be the inaugural APPT Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP) that will run from October 26 through to November 11. Both of these fantastic events will be taking place at the Grand Waldo Entertainment Complex.

The Macau Poker Cup Championship has been the grand finale of Asia's most premier poker series for some time and this latest edition is going to feature a HKD$20,000 buy-in Main Event that is going to pay out no less than HKD$4,500,000 in prize money. However, PokerNetwork has a feeling this guarantee will be completely obliterated.

If the Macau Poker Cup Championship is going to attract some of the best players in the region then the eagerly anticipated APPT Asia Championship of Poker should see some of the world's biggest names make the trip to the Grand Waldo. In total there are 18 official Asia Player of the Year events including a HKD$1,000,000 buy-in Main Event with a massive $10,000,000 guarantee and a HKD$250,000 buy-in High Roller event. It should be spectacular.

ACOP is the next evolution of tournaments in Asia,” said Danny McDonagh, Director of Live Operations for Asia-Pacific. “This is an exciting step towards reaching the success of major international tournaments like the PCA, EPT, and .
