The Philippines is the place to be this week for quality poker action with the arrival of the Asian Poker Tour in Manila.
This six-day poker and party festival has become one of the most popular land-based events on the calendar and for 22 players who won packages for the extravaganza on PartyPoker.com, this promises to be a trip they’ll never forget.
Our line-up is led by recent PartyPoker.com Irish Poker Championship winner Rory Rees Brennan from Dublin and features players from all over the world who won their way through to the Far East via online qualifiers that have been running since December last year. Each $6,000 prize package includes accommodation at the Dusit Thani Manila Hotel, buy-in for the main event and $2,500 spending money.
The main event runs from 29th January to 1st February but parties on the Asian Poker Tour have reached legendary status; they’ve even won an award they’re that good. One bash the online qualifiers will definitely not want to miss is the FHM-backed player’s party on 31st January. The talk is that the magazine will be bringing some its cover models to act as hosts.
We’ve got our own blogger covering this fantastic event, posting exclusive updates, features, gossip and photos right here throughout the duration of the tournament. We’ll even try to get him into the FHM party. Follow all the news right here from tomorrow (27th January).
