APPT Sydney promises A$1 million to winner
The Asia Pacific Poker Tour may be the youngest of the major poker tours in the world, but it is certainly proving that it is no baby. In just a few short months, the APPT has gone from an infant beginning in Manila to its Grand Final in Sydney. What's more, today, the APPT announced it will guarantee A$1 million to whoever wins the event.
PokerStars, the chief sponsor of the APPT, has already announced its intention to send more than 200 of its players to the APPT Grand Final. Players have already flocked to the daily $2.20 satellites and APPT Sydney Steps tournaments that start as low as $7.50 or 500 Frequent Player Points.
And why wouldn't they?
Not only is it summertime down under, but the prize package is something worth coveting. PokerStars qualifiers get a buy-in to the Grand Final, a hotel room for the duration of the tournament, up to $2,000 in airline fares, and a cruise around Sydney Harbor. What's more, I bet there will be some pretty good Aussie BBQ around to munch on.
