Stepping into the limelight, Chinese brand, Asian Poker Festival (APF), debuts at the Royal Poker Club in Hanoi, Vietnam from December 7 to 13, 2023. Like many brands that have emerged within the past two years, APF comes out determined and competitive. The upcoming games guarantees VN₫ 27 Billion (~$1.1 Million), highlighted by the Main Event VN₫ 15 Billion (~$616,650) prize pool. These figures are well above the standard set by previous newcomers.

While this might appear ambitious for a relatively new brand, the APF recognizes the increasing demand among Chinese players for competitive experiences beyond the mainland and what better place than Hanoi which has become a poker hotspot in Asia. To enhance the overall quality of the games, APF has enlisted the expertise of seasoned Tournament Director Roberto Wong to officiate.

If you haven’t yet browsed the schedule, make sure to do so by following the link provided below. APF features 25 trophy events with buy ins from as low as VN₫ 1.8 Million (~$75) to the heights of VN₫ 108 Million (~$4,500).
