Asia Pacific Poker Tour announces schedule for Seoul
The Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) today unveiled the Season 9 schedule for APPT Seoul which takes place at the Paradise Walkerhill Casino from April 6-12, 2015.
The seven-day schedule includes six Official Asia Player of the Year events and features the ₩3,000,000 (USD $2,800) buy-in Main Event.
"Our team is always excited to return to Seoul," said APPT President Danny McDonagh. "Paradise Walkerhill provides a fantastic player experience every year and we're expecting continued growth for tournament poker in the region."
Last year's APPT Seoul Main Event winner, Thailand's Chane Kampanatsanyakorn beat a 256-player field which earned him a ₩150,000,000 share of the ₩685,000,000 prize pool. The Season 8 poker festival set a new record for attendance with a total of 817 players and ₩1,068,140,250 in prize money across all events.
"Seoul is one the most modern cities in the world. The bars, nightclubs and roadside food offerings welcome you to a great nightlife experience," said recently signed Team PokerStars Pro Kosei Ichinose.
In addition to Ichinose, several other notables have already confirmed their attendance including fellow Team PokerStars Pros Celina Lin, Bryan Huang, and Aditya Argawal; and 2014 Asia Player of the Year Pete Chen.
Online satellites to the APPT Seoul Main Event are running now.
