http://pokerdiscovery.com/news/168/asian-pacific-poker-tour-reveals-schedule-for-2015-live-poker-tournaments recently announced that the key dates for the upcoming Season 9 of Asia-Pacific Poker Tour were revealed. The tournament is going to start mid January 2015 and the last stop will take place in November, with a dozen of events in between.
Winners will take home significant amounts of money and the priceless golden bracelets, so there are plenty of reasons to check out the dates and make your plans for 2015 accordingly. Poker professionals are expected to attend in greater numbers, after more of them participate in 2014 than in the previous season. Australian players will probably represent the vast majority of those who sit down at the tables, but fast rising Asian players are also expected to tag along.
Interesting enough, the previous two seasons saw a surge in the number of amateurs, with one explanation being that the buy ins are not prohibitive. There is an indissoluble link between the number of professionals who participate and how many amateurs find it worthwhile to spend a few hundreds of dollars. Despite the fact that they know that competition will be tough, regular players are always looking forward to playing the same tournaments as the best in this line of work.
Season 9 of the Asia-Pacific Poker Tour begins with a bang on January 14, when the Aussie Millions Poker Championship kicks off at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia. This is by far the most important tournament of all those held in Asia and one that has an impressive tradition, spanning over 21 events. Given the fact that it is sponsored by PokerStars, it is only fair to expect most if not all of their professionals to participate.
The same goes for some of the next stops of the APPT, with tournaments being held in Macau and New Zealand, with Perth and Sydney being also gracious hosts for these events. Two interesting events scheduled for 2015 are the APPT Manila and the Macau Poker Cup 23 which start in early August and conclude mid-September. Overall there are millions of dollars to be won at these tables and coveted trophies to collect, making the Season 9 of the Asia-Pacific Poker Tour the highlight of 2015.
