Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT)

The Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) is about to launch its inaugural season, and you better believe that I'm going to be a part of it. Three events have been named so far, and one just so happens to be an hour from my apartment.

The 2nd event will be held in Seoul, at the walker hill casino. It's a nice place to play... I've been two or year times this year.

The buy-in is $2,500, but I'm going to just get sponsored by pokerstars and use my FPPs. I wasn't sure I'd be able to do this, but I've cleared it with support, and I'm a definite go.

The tourney isn't until late September, but I'm already pumped about it. I will probably end up devoting a large chunk of my playing time in September to gear up for the event. So this means playing a bunch of tournaments and what not.

This whole thing has exciting implications for the poker world on a larger scale too. If an interest in poker can be sparked throughout this region, we may see another poker boom of epic proportions. Here's hoping....

In other news, July sucks. I'm down like $1k this month so far. I'm hoping to clear a milestone bonus this month, which will be good for $3000. I'll probably ring up another $1.5k bonus on top of it. 2 if I grind hard enough.

So yeah, I'm not worried yet, the month is young and I'm sure it'll turn around.



god damn... i wanted to play in this event in Seoul but its says on pokerstars "Korean nationals are prohibited from participating" WTF man...
