Sixteen players will return for Day 2 and the Final Table of the first-ever APT Asian Poker Series Prague with top prize at just over EUR10,000. Currently holding the chip lead is Japan’s Wataru Kesugi.
“Whilst we would have liked to have seen more players at our inaugural tournament in Europe, when we were invited by the organisers to do a three day event, we fully understood that we would be the final act of the 17 day Prague Poker Festival – tournament 28 – and that we would clash with some tournaments being staged by EPT Prague. – We were not anticipating a large entry; for us this was a soft run to assess the potential of the European market for APT. We will return next year with a 7 day event for sure,” commented Asian Poker Tour CEO Jeff Mann.
Of the registered players for the event, only reigning APT Player of the Year Sam Razavi, Charlie Wittmann from Germany and Iori Yogo from Japan have attended an APT event before.
