APT Poker Room Manila Operations Director Raymund Gamier emphasized this value and said that the poker room’s intent in the long-term is to help the low-to-mid stakes players in achieving their poker dreams of playing in APT tournaments and becoming APT champions.

Value. Great value!” declared APT Poker Room Manila Operations Director Raymund Gamier describing the upcoming four-day tournament.

The Filipino players will never see a tournament with this kind of value. Imagine, it’s a 200K guaranteed tournament with a 1,500 buy-in, plus the added prizes to the main event of the APT Philippines. I am very excited with this new poker room especially as it carries the APT brand. I’ve been in the business for nine years now, from being a dealer, floor person to operations manager of a poker room. Now, as operations director of the APT Poker Room Manila, my thinking is that there are a lot of things I want to try and explore for the Philippine poker industry,” Gamier added.

The APT Poker Room Manila is located at the second floor of Casino Filipino, Waterfront Manila Pavilion, Ma. Orosa cor. UN Avenue, Ermita, Malate, Manila. For more information, email pokerroom@theasianpokertour.com
