APT Online Series 2nd Edition Schedule

Two events to mark down are the tour’s most prestigious tournaments – APT MAIN EVENT and APT CHAMPIONSHIPS EVENT. At the inaugural edition, both events pulled in record attendance and breached half a million dollars. For this edition, we push way past the barrier by guaranteeing a very large $ 1,000,000 for each event. 

At the inaugural series, all event winners were privy to to an APT Trophy. For this edition, trophies will only be awarded to the featured event champions. Winners of the Main Event, Championships Event, and Mini Main Event will also receive an APT Championship Ring. For the Super High Roller champion, an added luxury watch. 

As always, the series wouldn’t be complete without the APT Player of the Series race. The top three players in points at the end of the series will win special prizes. All three will receive an APT POS Ring and prize money from $ 500 to $ 1,500. The ultimate winner also receives an APT Finale Championship Event ticket while 2nd place receives an APT Finale Main Event ticket.
