Asian Poker Tour 2009 begins in Manila

Thursday, 29 January 2009

The second-ever APT Manila has begun in the heart of the Philippines. The APT Manila Main Event will feature over 300 players stumping up $2,700 for a shot at glory across the felt.

Last year, Aussie David Saab took the event down and won $280,000 in the process. He has confirmed his return to the Philippines’ poker tables and will begin play on Day 1B. Last year he had to destroy a field of 316 players but the organisers are hoping the 2009 turnout will be greater.

The APT is also known for the night-life and this year the FHM and DafaPoker party shouldn’t disappoint with plenty of FHM’s cover models walking around and booze a-plenty.
