The Asian Poker Tour (APT) has just announced that it will be holding its annual APT Philippines event this August at Resorts World Manila (RWM).
Asia PokerNews learned today that APT Philippines 2010 will be held from August 23 to 29 at the RWM hotel and casino complex. Buy-in for the event is set at US $2,500 + US $200.
"We are very excited to be holding one of our biggest events at a world-class venue such as Resorts World Manila," said APT CEO Mr. Jeff Mann. "This is only one of our events for 2010, so be sure to stay tuned for the rest of this year's schedule!"

RWM is holding its first-ever major poker tournament today. Entitled the “Resorts World Manila Inaugural Poker Championships”, the event will be held from April 16 to 19 at RWM. The tournament is an APT-accredited event and features a Php 2,000,000 guaranteed prize pool.
