PokerStars LIVE has just announced its premier festival, Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT), will be returning to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. As the tour’s first event of the year, players can look forward to $550,000 in guaranteed prize pools and iconic PS Shard Trophies and Spadies up for grabs.
In partnership with Connaissance Management, APPT Cambodia 2023 is scheduled for May 5 to 15 at the world class NagaWorld Integrated Resort Complex. While the full lineup has yet to be released, players can start plugging in key events listed below.
Highlighting the festival is the APPT Cambodia Main Event which features a $400,000 guarantee. It runs from May 12 to 15 with a buy in of $1,500.
