Two more stops on the Asian Poker Tour have been confirmed and their schedules released, as the Tour looks to round out 2022 in style.
Having previously partnered with Natural8 to host online events, the Asian Poker Tour continues to go from strength to strength and has hosted over half a dozen events so far this year in the Philippines, Vietnam, South Korea and Taiwan.
The latest events announced take place over the next two months in Da Nang, Vietnam (December 8-18) and Manila, Philippines (November 15-27).
“It’s going to be an exciting finish to the calendar year,” said APT President Neil Johnson. “We’ve taken a lot of player feedback and expanded the Manila and Da Nang schedules for a very robust offering.”
