Asia Pacific Poker Tour to add stop in Seoul

12 December 2011

MACAU, China -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The PokerStars Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) is pleased to announce the addition of Seoul, Korea to it's Season 5 schedule from March 7-11, and will be hosted by the prestigious Paradise Walker-Hill Casino.

The 5-day, 5-event poker festival will feature the KRW 3,000,000 (US $2,600) buy-in Main Event. This marks the long awaited return for the biggest and richest poker tour in Asia where previously, Yoshihiro Tasaka became the tour's first Japanese winner when he captured the 2008 title and the KRW 148,896,000 (US $128,000) prize.

Poker in Korea, and Asia overall, has grown immensely since Tasaka's victory and a record field is widely expected for the 2012 tournament.

Players can qualify for APPT Seoul packages at PokerStars where satellites are already running.
