APT Philippines Sizzles this Summer

As the summer season has just begun in the Philippines, the Asian Poker Tour is set to blaze the felts of the country’s first integrated resorts and casino – Resorts World Manila with the Asian Poker Tour Philippines 2015 scheduled from April 14th to the 22nd.

The nine-day schedule kicks off with a $50,000 Guaranteed Opening Event. The $275 buy-in tournament features two flights starting at 1:00pm and 6:00pm respectively. Then followed in the evening by the Ante Up for Charity, proceeds from which will be donated to the Gawad Kalinga construction of a house for a Typhoon Haiyan devastated family. Along with these throughout the week are the APT’s staple tournaments – Satellites, NLH Rebuy Add On, High Rollers, Head Hunter, Ladies of Poker, OFC Pineapple, NLH and PLO events and Deep Stack Turbos.

While the $2,200 Asian Poker Tour Philippines Main Event will be the first time players will get to experience the increased starting stack of 25,000. Last year’s APT Philippines drew a total of 208 entries with Feng Zhao coming out on top.

As if that wasn’t enough, a couple of new side events are now part of the mix. First is the Monster Stack that aims to give a second chance to players falling from the Main Event. With a healthy buy-in of $770; starting stack of 30,000 in chips and a structure patterned after the Main Event, the Monster Stack is sure to be a poker player pleaser. Then closing out the festivities is the revised 6 Handed event. The $21,000 Guaranteed 6 Handed – 10 Man Stop will halt with the final 10 players. These players will then receive an equal share of the cash prize pool and a Main Event seat to the APT’s next stop – APT Vietnam!
