The third season of the APPT will feature poker tournaments in China, South Korea, New Zealand, and the Philippines, and will hold its grand final event in Australia. The last stop was also the scene of the Season 2 grand final that saw Martin Rowe take home one million Australian dollars for the victory.
As so often happens on PokerStars regional tours, many of the same players will be making their travel plans to play in the reasonably priced tournaments in some of the most beautiful cities in the Asia Pacific part of the world, though there will be new faces as well. Everyone is welcome to participate and take their shots at APPT and global poker stardom.
