The Asian Poker Tour in Macau, China

On August 27th, 2008, the cards are in the air for the APT Macau stop this week and it has attracted a record crowd in the Galaxy StarWorld Casino. The historical $5,300 buy-in cost main event played two Day one's, with the second day attracting two hundred fifty-seven players and record crowds to the casino gaming establishment. According to APT officials, 6 brand new state-of-the art poker shuffling machines have been added to answer the demand.

Tom Hall, the Chief Executive Officer of AsianLogic said that adding 8 tables to the Asian Poker Tour room may not sound a major move to the well-established poker circuit in the West but a lot of people should remember that this is Macau where the game of baccarat is the king.

Some of the well-known poker players that have participated in the event are Johnny Chan, Todd Brunson, Doyle Brunson, Liz Lieu, J.C. Tran, Kenny Tran, John Juanda, Nam Le, Steve Sung, Huck Seed, David Rheem, Mel Judah, Aaron Kanter, J.J. Liu and others. Quinn Do is also taking in the poker tournament after having won the celebrity charity poker event that started off the APT's stop in Macau. A lot of these poker players are also expected to participate in the high-roller event. The Asian Poker Tour is featuring a $1 million HKD buy-in cost cash event that will be broadcasted as well.

The beginning blinds for the game are at $3,000/$6,000 HKD and both the straddling and blinds will be raised at the discretion of the participant. The early action in the game has already seen John Juanda winning a $1 million HKD cash pot from Chris Parker. APT CEO Parker said that they expect a lot of from the tournament.
