PokerStars Releases the Schedule for Season 7's APPT Macau

Posted at 10:25 2013-05-17 by Matthew Pitt

The PokerStars Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) has released its schedule for the upcoming Season 7 edition of APPT Macau, and it looks fantastic.

Taking place at the PokerStars LIVE at the City of Dreams between June 7-16, APPT Macau features 11 official Asia Player of the Year events including a HKD $25,000 buy-in Main Event with a HKD$6,000,000 guaranteed prize pool!

The last time there was a HKD$25,000 buy-in event in Macau it was the Asia Championship of Poker Warm-Up event in October 2012. That tournament attracted 358 players to the felt and was eventually won by Jeffrey Rossiter, who left Macau with the HKD$1,777,000 first place prize.

Other previous winners of APPT Macau events include Team PokerStars Online’s Randy “nanonoko” Lew, Victorino Torres, Ireland’s Dermot Blain, Edward Sabat and Dinh Le.

This latest festival, which spans 10-days, is sure to attract some of the biggest names in the world, despite the fact the World Series of Poker will be in full swing at the opposite side of the globe. Among the many faces in the crowd will be the likes of Team PokerStars Pros Bryan Huang, Raymond Wu, Celina Lin and Vivian Im.
