Natural8 to Host Second Online Edition of the Asia Poker League
Until the 27th June, Natural8 will be back to host the second online edition of the Asia Poker League Series.
This APL Online Series will feature CN¥80,000,000 in guarantees, which is equivalent to approximately $12.5 million. Although the festival is geared towards the Asia Pacific region, tournaments will be open to all players.
What is the Asia Poker League?
Founded by Korean games promoter Judic Kim, the Asia Poker League came to life in 2016. The first live edition took place at the Beijing Poker Club (BPC), with the Main Event attracting a field of 465 entries. In April 2017, attendance grew to 911. For their second live festival in November 2017, APL headed to Shanghai.
While predominantly focused on the central Asian region, APL has also headed to the Star Casino in Australia on three occasions. Further stops have also been hosted in Vietnam, South Korea, Taiwan, and the Philippines.
Earlier this year, Natural8 played host to the APL festival for the very first time in the virtual arena. Due to positive response, the second edition of this online series is back just four months later.
