    POKERSTARS TO RUN MAJOR POKER TOURNEY IN CHINA

    PokerStars.net Asia Pacific Poker Tour Macau: Asian Poker Open launched

    It's a big title, but then the "PokerStars.net Asia Pacific Poker Tour Macau: Asian Poker Open" is likely to be a major real money event. Poker Stars has launched the first-ever real money No-Limit Texas Hold'em poker tournament to be held in the People's Republic of China.

    The APPT Macau stop will run from November 22-27, 2007, and will feature a main event with a buy-in of US $2 500. The event will be held at Macau's Grand Waldo Hotel & Casino, one of the newest "five-star" venues in the booming Macau scene.

    APPT President Jeffrey Haas says the Asia Pacific Poker Tour is an historic event that diversifies Macau's global attraction by including the APPT's unique brand of poker tourism. "It's a significant step forward, not only for the APPT, but for the growth of poker in Asia," he claims.

    The indications are that a large number of poker stars will be appearing in the competition, including top-rated Team PokerStars members. Other events promised include a special 'High Rollers' tourney that features a US $15 000 buy-in. And Poker Stars will also add the Macau stop to its selection of events available for satellite qualifying by its online players.

    Sarne Lightman, Poker Stars Asia Pacific' Director of Marketing noted the stop as part of his company's continuing expansion on the international scene: "PokerStars is committed to the growth of poker as an international sport," said Lightman. "Adding Macau to the APPT schedule is a very exciting step forward. There is global interest in the 'Las Vegas of Asia' and we are very proud we can offer players this amazing experience."
