PokerStars announces 2013 Seoul Poker Cup

PokerStars today announced that it will be supporting the 2nd annual Seoul Poker Cup which will be hosted by the Paradise Casino Walkerhill from August 23-25.

The Seoul Poker Cup features two Official Asia Player of the Year events including the KRW 1.1m (US $970) buy-in Main Event.

"We're excited to support this event again this year and we have added re-entries to the Main Event this time." said APPT President Danny McDonagh.

Last year, Korean-based Frechman Olivier Ziegler beat the 137-player field to win more than KRW 40m. This year is expected to be bigger and better.
