The prize pool was entirely comprised of APT Philippines packages of differing values, with POY points earned for final placings. The event was sponsored by the Asian Poker Tour, and Okinawa Poker Association.

 Heads up play brought an exciting match up for the crowd, as APT regulars, Iori Yogo, and Kimura Lee, went up against each other for victory. The total number of paid players in this event was standing at 18, but the biggest prize eventually went to Iori Yogo, who took home the biggest APT Philippines package for his win. He also collected 306 precious POY points

Talking with Somuchpoker about the event, APT Executive Tournament Director, Lloyd Fontillas said "Players from all over Japan came to support this event and it was great to be the one acting as TD for the very first Okinawa Poker Cup. I say first because due to huge success of the event it won't be the last one"
