The revamped Asian Poker Tour is capping off the year with another festival record to beat right in Vietnam’s largest conference space, the National Convention Center (NCC) this coming December. Having finished off its previous tours with astounding results one after the other, the upcoming APT Hanoi Billions is sure to top the charts and surpass everyone’s expectations once more. The awaited closing event marks the third return of the esteemed poker tour in Hanoi for 2023 alone, and has already celebrated two successful series of games in the Southeast Asian capital.

APT Hanoi Billions is going to be the biggest poker event that Vietnam has ever seen. Hanoi’s National Convention Center is where the most important gatherings occur in Vietnam so it’s only appropriate that we make poker history there,” said VSOP CEO Terry Nguyen.

For a price tag of VND 36,000,000 (~USD 1,480), players will have multiple chances to build a stack with four starting flights on schedule.
