APT and RWM have fused a strong bond that dates back to 2010. Since then, the APT has held 18 successful international poker events at RWM including the monumental APT-RWM Iron Man Poker Challenge back in 2013. This event currently holds the Guinness World Record for the longest, continuous running poker tournament: 48 hours – 55 minutes – 58 seconds. Earlier this year, RWM hosted APT’s biggest event to-date, the APT Championships 2017 Philippines that ran for 12 days and attracted 733 players representing 36 nationalities.

Next year’s confirmed APT events at RWM are: APT Philippines Championships 2018 (March 21 – April 1) and APT Philippines 2018 (September 11 – 20).
