APPT announces Season 5 schedule

After a wait that lasted half a year, it's time to start planning for the next season of the Asia Pacific Poker Tour. Last December, the APPT put its fourth season to bed in Sydney. This afternoon, tour organizers announced a brand new schedule that begins in just two months.

The Season 5 tour includes stops in Melbourne, Queenstown, Macau, and the Philippines. It all kicks off in Melbourne and the Crown Casino with a AUD $5,000 main event on July 29.

It's been nearly six months since Jonathan Karamalikis won the APPT Season 4 Grand Final in Sydney and banked AUD $459,510. No doubt you can expect to see the phenom bring some of that cash back for Season 5.
