The Poker King Club in Macau has announced that its next Asian Poker King Tournament will be held in early August.
According to the poker room, the event will be held from August 5 to 8 at the eighth floor of the StarWorld Hotel. It will feature a guaranteed prize pool of HK $880,000 for a buy-in of HK $6,000 + HK $500.
It will be the third edition of the poker room’s biggest tournament, which has attracted players from different countries such as Hong Kong, China, Japan, Korea, and the Philippines.
The last Asian Poker King Tournament was held in late April, with Elton Tsang besting a total field of 233 players to win the HK $553,600 first prize. That tournament featured a bigger guarantee of HK $1,000,000 but also a higher buy-in at HK $7,500 + HK $500.
This time, though, the event will have a new twist as a number of seats to the upcoming Asian Poker Tour (APT) Philippines 2010 main event worth US $2,700 will be inclusive in the prize pool.
“We’re getting closer to the APT event in Manila this August and we are delighted to have the support of the Poker King Club,” said APT chief Jeff Mann.
APT Philippines 2010 will be held from August 23 to 29 at the Resorts World Manila complex in Manila, Philippines. Buy-in is set at approximately US $2,500 + US $200.
The Poker King Club is located on the third floor of the StarWorld Casino in Macau. For more information, read the Asia PokerNews feature on the Poker King Club. You may also visit their web site by clicking here.
