Asian Poker Tour expands its brand in Vietnam with Da Nang event announced

Yesterday, the Asian Poker Tour added a new destination to their 2018 calendar season with the APT Vietnam Da Nang Championships announced. The twelve-day event is slated to take place from October 3 – 14 at Cocobay beach resort in the coastal city of Da Nang.

This is in partnership with Win Poker Club and the Bridge & Poker Association. The contract signing and official announcement was made at the ongoing APT Philippines Championships in Resorts World Manila.

At the start of the year, the APT took Vietnam by storm, hosting the first international poker event ever seen in Ho Chi Minh City This was also the first time the APT held their annual kickoff outside of the Philippines.

With the Main Event setting a brand record of 664 entries, the huge success prompted the APT and their Vietnamese partners to immediately secure a second event at the same venue.

The APT Vietnam Championships was then penned in, scheduled to take place from July 11-22, 2018 at the Pro Poker Club in HCMC.

The latest addition of Da Nang to the 2018 roster means the APT will now be hosting a total of three events in Vietnam for the year.

Newly appointed APT General Manager, Lloyd Fontillas, also announced that this event completes the APT 2018 lineup. The brand will hold 9 events for the year, six of which are APT Championships events.
