PokerStars APPT Seoul Festival Begins

Posted at 12:25 2013-03-13 by Matthew Pitt

The Paradise Walkerhill Casino is the venue for the PokerStars Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) Seoul festival, which kicked off yesterday evening. Running from March 12 through to March 17, APPT Seoul will feature seven official events including the eagerly anticipated KRW3,000,000 buy-in Main Event (AUD$2,650).

Seoul is an amazing city and it is no wonder that players travel from all corners of the globe to compete in the APPT Seoul Festival of Poker. One only has to look at the results from the 2012 edition of the APPT Seoul Main Event to see the how diverse ethnicities of the players are.
