The PokerStarsAsia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) makes a welcome return to Cebu, Philippines for Season 7 and it promises to be a special festival. Once again, the Waterfront Airport Hotel and Casino inside the gorgeous Shangri-La Mactan resort, will play host to the APPT Cebu festivities.
Already done and dusted is the PHP10,000 (approx. AUD$235) buy-in Cebu Cup, which featured a PHP1,000,000 (approx. AUD$23,495) guaranteed prize pool, and this leaves everyone’s attention on the APPT Cebu Main Event that opens its door today.
Day 1A of the PHP100,000 (approx. AUD$2,350) buy-in APPT Cebu Main Event begins at 12:00 local time on May 1, with the second and final starting flight beginning at the slightly later time of 12:15 on May 2.
When Cebu last hosted an APPT event, 246 players bought in and created a PHP21,953,040 (approx. AUD$515,525) prize pool. The largest slice of this was won by Hoang Anh Do, who claimed the PHP5,927,000 (approx. AUD$139,180) first place prize for his victory.
The APPT Cebu Main Event is due to finish on May 5, which is the same day the eagerly anticipated High Roller tournament begins. A one-day event, the PHP250,000 (approx. AUD$5,870) buy-in High Roller event is sure to attract some of the very best players from the Asia-Pacific region, many of whom will see APPT Cebu as the perfect warm-up tournament for the 2013 World Series of Poker.
