Poker in Asia is growing by leaps and bounds, with many new tournaments and leagues being set up. For existing leagues, the frequency of tournaments is increasing while the guarantees are also on their way up. One such poker company that is making its presence felt in a big way is the Asia Poker League (APL).
After two successful stops in Manila and Vietnam earlier this year, they announced the APL Xi’an series, at an upcoming poker venue in China. The series has been scheduled between 8th and 14th August and will take place at the Xi’an Baoyulin Poker Sporting Club.
The APL Xi’an will feature a Main Event tournament with a buy in of CNY 5,500 (~INR 55,000). The guarantee for this Main Event is set at a massive CNY 3,000,000 (~INR 3 crore), so Asian poker players will not want to miss out on being a part of this tournament. APL is also giving players a chance to win free tickets to this tournament.
After having seen the success of his live poker ventures, APL founder Judic Kim has set his sights on online poker as well, with the launch of their online platform called ‘Play APL’. The app offers free to play poker games that allows users to win rewards and prizes. Now, they can also win APL live event passes.
The iOS and Android versions of the app have been running successfully since a few months now and the APL Main Event passes can be won by users in two ways – online satellites by playing 9-max SnGs and also, a ‘Rake Race’ competition. Tickets to the live event can be won until 7th August, with the series beginning on 8th.
