Asia-Pacific Poker Tour Adds Manila to Season 8 Schedule from July 2-7, 2014 0001

The Asia-Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) just wrapped up a successful stop in Seoul, South Korea, and now it has announced the addition of Manila, Philippines to the Season 8 schedule. This marks the first time the APPT will visit Manila in four years. The stop will take place at The Metro Card Club from July 2-7, 2014.

"We're really excited about the announcement. Manila has a very passionate poker community and the team at The Metro has always been a pleasure to work with," said APPT President Danny McDonagh. "There's been an overwhelming demand for the APPT to host an event here so we're looking to make this the best Manila event ever after a four year hiatus."

The PHP 50,000 (USD $1,100) APPT Manila Main Event will be offered in a repechage format, which means player who fall on Day 1a can reenter on Day 1b.

The six-day poker festival, which includes five Official Asia Player of the Year events, will open with the PHP 10,000 Manila Cup. Here's a look at the entire schedule:
