APPT Cambodia: Kickoff Event pushing towards six figures with over 250 entries; APPT Cambodia confirmed as permanent annual stop


Day 2 of the Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) Cambodia is off to a flying start with over 100 entries and counting for the second starting flight of the Kick Off Event. Highlighting the event is the US$ 50,000 guarantee, and with yesterday’s Day 1A pulling in 133 entries, that figure has already been breached as the pot pushes towards six figures. There’s still time to join in. Registration is open until 6:20pm. Buy in for the event is US$ 350.

Among those already in action are China’s Xixiang Luo, Jin Bo, France’s Vincent Chauve, Vietnam’s Bien Mai, Korea’s Seongmin Lee, and India’s Sameer Agarwal to mention a few.

For those that bump the rail or are just getting to partner venue NagaWorld Integrated Resorts in Phnom Penh, the evening flight is your last chance to enter. Day 1C kicks off at 7pm. This is a turbo flight with blinds increasing at a faster 15 minutes. Registration closes at 9:50pm.

APPT Cambodia a permanent stop

In partnership with Connaissance Management, the APPT is back in Cambodia for its second visit and according to Senior Manager of APPT Lorie Ann Lagrosas, it will be a permanent stop in the APPT’s annual roster.

The APPT is one of the most sought after festivals in the region with players from all over the world converging to battle for the brand’s prestigious titles. The largest ever APPT Main Event was in 2018 in Manila with 1,364 entries for a prize pool of over US$ 1.2 Million.

For the upcoming APPT Cambodia Main Event, it is highlighted by US$ 400,000 guarantee. Buy in is US$ 1,500. With a strong turnout seen on the first two days, and a large contingent of Chinese players joining the fray, the prize pool could easily exceed the guarantee.
