Summer action isn’t over just yet with the tournament poker grind across Asia continuing to keep players wrapped up from month to month. This end of July, Asia Poker Championship backed by premier organizer Korea Mind Game Members (KMGM), returns to its homebase location in Da Nang, Vietnam from July 31 to August 6 for one week of action-packed games. Entitled Danang Series of Poker, the festival brings in a total of DP 10 Billion (~US$ 422K) in guaranteed prizes to be awarded throughout the course of the series, with 10 thrilling events yet again completing the schedule.

The upcoming festival will be the brand’s second offering in its very own first overseas poker club, Dragon Poker. Situated at the Han Market Square Building, the opening of the Club earlier this February came in celebration of APC’s debut on Vietnam soil. The previous edition similarly hosted DP 10 Billion (~US$ 422K) in guaranteed prizes across ten events with PhilippinesJose Colada bringing home the Main Event title. Colada bested the 404 entry field and beat Korea’s Woo Young Lee in heads up battle to claim the ₫2,148,600,000 (~$90.5K) top prize.
