Across more than three weeks, the entire APL Online Series schedule boasts hundreds of tournaments and that also includes 28 trophy events, in which poker players from all over the world can unlock new unique zodiac avatars. The limited Green Dragon Avatar is reserved for the winner of the ¥20 Million (~USD $2.76M) guaranteed APL Main Event, which highlights the schedule with its impressive guarantee.

But not only the large tournament prize pools promise plenty of value for the players, as several of the events also feature the red envelope promotion. All participating contenders in these special editions have a shot at earning additional free cash game dollars on Natural8. Up to ¥2 Million of free money drops are up for grabs and all you need to do is play in the red envelope tournaments for a chance to win.

Buy-ins in the 28 trophy events range from as little as ¥188 (~USD $26) all the way up to ¥55,000 (~USD $7,590), the latter of which is the entry fee for Event #18: VIP Golden Challenge. Another high-stakes showdown is reserved for Event #11: Zodiac Goat Sunday SHR, which comes with a price tag of ¥20,240 (~USD $2,793) and the same ¥5,000,000 (~USD $690,000) guarantee.

Two bargain multi-flight tournaments which will likely catch the attention of poker enthusiasts with a smaller bankroll take place on Sunday, June 23, 2024. The entry fee for Event #19: Baby Dragon Mini Main is a mere ¥388 (~ $53) but all participants will compete for at least ¥2,000,000 (~ $276,000) in prize money. Event #20: Mystery Bounty Festival has a slightly higher but still affordable price tag of ¥1,888 (~ $260) and features a ¥10,000,000 guarantee (~ $1,380,000).

The series culminates with Event #28: Green Dragon Main Event, which boasts an aptly chosen buy-in of ¥2,024 (~ $279) and gargantuan guaranteed prize pool of ¥10,000,000 (~ $2,760,000) guarantee. First starting days are listed as early as June 9 and there likely also be budget-friendly satellites available throughout the series as well.

About Ace Poker League

Korean brand Ace Poker League formerly known as Asia Poker League has been touring the Asian region since 2016.

In 2022, the APL rebranded and proceeded to stage the richest events in the country.

The last live stop took place in March 2024 and once again broke its own record.

With a staggering 2,037 entries, the KRW 1.5 Million Main Event generated an unprecedented prize pool of KRW 4,224,400,000 (~USD $3.17M). For the only venture outside of the country, APL visited the 2 Ace Poker Casino in Manila this past November 2023.
