Minaxshi Shah, Director of Events at Asian Poker Classic, said: "We expect there will be between 150 and 200 players, and with a $250,000 add-in the equity in this tournament is absolutely astounding!"

A host of top pros and celebrities will turn out for the prestigious event, which is being held at the five-star Intercontinental, Grand Resort in Goa. The stunning venue will provide an outstanding backdrop to rival any setting for a major poker event in the coming 12 months.

Tournament Director Thomas Kremser said: "The Asian Poker Classic is not just one of the biggest events scheduled for India in 2007 – it's one of the biggest poker events anywhere in the world. With Goa as a fantastic location, it will be the most exciting new poker tournament of the year."

Bluff Europe magazine is offering complimentary rooms at the Intercontinental for the five-day duration of the tournament to 12 players who sign up now. To qualify for the offer, simply be one of the first 12 to contact APC, quoting the reference BLUFF EUROPE TAKES ME TO GOA!

Bluff Europe editor Michael Caselli said: "A $250,000 add-in and the chance to visit one of the world's most beautiful resorts makes this an easy decision – especially since we are paying for four nights' accommodation at a five-star resort."
