Schedule Announced for Season 8 of APPT
PokerStars have released details of the planned schedule for Season 8 of the Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT). The tour will take place during 2014 and feature a range of tournaments throughout the Asia Pacific region. A number of poker festivals have been incorporated into the APPT so that all tournaments organized by PokerStars in this part of the world fall under the same umbrella.
Tournaments that were previously part of the Australia New Zealand Poker Tour will now all be part of the APPT, as will the Macau Poker Cup and the Asia Championship of Poker. Perhaps the biggest news is that one of the biggest tournaments around – the Aussie Millions Poker Championship – will also be part of the APPT in 2014.
APPT President Danny McDonagh had this to say: “Having the entire Asia Pacific poker calendar, news and updates in one location is huge. The APPT website becomes much more user friendly and improving the player experience is something we look to enhance each season.”
The tour starts on January 10th in Macau and will come to end in November, in New Zealand. The Aussie Millions will be taking place in February and will be held at the Crown Melbourne Casino as usual. Other highlights include the Macau Millions in March and the Asia Championship of Poker in early November.
