APT Poker Cruise: Sam Razavi wins the Main Event, Team PKC claims two side events

The APT Poker Cruise has finally docked after a 4-day offshore event that ran from September 29 to October 2 on the Rex Fortune Cruise which sails around Hong Kong.

In partnership with Poker King Club, the Poker Cruise ran 4 events including the main event which had a buy-in of HD$11,000. Sam Razavi, four- time APT Player of the Year, won the Main Event for around $9.5k while Iori Yogo took 3rd place.

Both players have been vying to win the APT Player of the Year for 2016, with Yogo leading in points. Razavi, who had won the 4 previous years, needs to catch up and needs to earn points fast. But despite winning the APT Poker Cruise, Razavi still trails behind Yogo in points and remains in 2nd position for the APT Player of the Year.

 Team PKC claims two side events

Poker King Club Poker Pro Team did very well in the event with John Tech winning the Monster Stack Tourney and Jason Lo, who won the last Poker King Club Cup, becoming the champion of the Deep Stack Turbo 2. Wai Lok Fong won the Deep Stack Turbo 1.

The APT Poker Cruise was created to allow Hong Kong Chinese players to play poker near Hong Kong without any legal problems. The APT Poker Cruise is definitely something to look forward to next time especially since it combines luxury, relaxation and a good game of poker.
