APPT announces Manila stop

The Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) has announced the Manila, Philippines leg of Season 8 which will take place at The Metro Card Club from July 2-7, 2014.

APPT Manila will feature the PHP 50,000 (USD $1,100) Main Event in a repechage format which will give eliminated players from Day 1a the option to re-enter on Day 1b.

"We're really excited about the announcement. Manila has a very passionate poker community, and the team at The Metro has always been a pleasure to work with." said APPT President Danny McDonagh. "There's been an overwhelming demand for the APPT to host an event here, so we're looking to make this the best Manila event ever after a four year hiatus."


The 6-day poker festival will include five Official Asia Player of the Year events. Highlights include the opening PHP 10,000 Manila Cup, as well as the 100k NLH event.
