We may be approaching the second half of the year but the Asian Poker Tour is still expanding its lineup of events for the year 2017 with APT Southeast Asia 2017 to be held from July 1st to the 7th.
This marks not only a new venue for the APT but also the opening of the latest Poker King Club room and the anniversary celebrations of the host venue – Star Vegas Resort & Club located in Poipet, Cambodia. It’s now two years since the Star Vegas became part of Donaco International Limited, a public company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX:DNA).
The week-long poker festivities feature a USD 1,100 Main Event that starts on July 3rd. Completing the schedule would be staple APT tournaments namely No Limit Holdem, Head Hunter, High Rollers, Deep Stack Turbos and Monster Stack events.

The closest international airport is located at Cambodia’s world famous tourist destination of Siem Reap, approximately two hours away.
Poipet, Cambodia is very close to the Cambodia- Thailand border so players from both sides will be in attendance.
