Right after Poker Dream in Manila or APT in Taiwan is the big event of the year: APPT at NagaWorld in Phnom Penh.



The fields are busting records at NagaWorld in Phnom Penh. It’s obvious why – they put on a world-class show for every series. I’m impressed with every aspect of the tournaments hosted at NagaWorld: the magnificent ballroom, the huge prizepools, the exciting atmosphere, the juicy cash games, the 5-star food and beverage service, it all works.

PokerStars Live in Manila has recently run an APPT megastack qualifier with 4 days of qualifying events – a sure commitment for a huge field for APPT proper.
