Good morning everyone and welcome to opening day of the APT Southeast Asia 2017!
Running from July 1st to 7th, the Asian Poker Tour and the Poker King Club have tied up once again to bring you another exciting poker festival, this time at a new destination, the Star Vegas Resort & Club in Poipet, Cambodia.
For those new to the area, the venue lies on the border between Cambodia and Thailand. It is the largest and most luxurious casino resort in the area fully equipped with all types of casino games. The venue is only a two-hour drive from the Cambodia Airport in Siem Reap and a three-hour drive from Bangkok, Thailand. The currency of choice is the Thai Baht.
Throughout the week, the APT Southeast Asia 2017 will be offering a solid lineup of events: the highlight tournament is the US$1,100 buy-in APT Main Event with 13 APT signature side events running alongside of buy-ins ranging from US$110-US$440. The High Rollers event offers the largest entry fee of US$2,200.
