APT Asian Series Sails into India(September 02, 2011) The Asian Poker Tour (APT) is pleased to announce a historic move that will see the APT Asian Series tournament land on the sunny shores of Indias Goa. Set to take place from November 8-14, 2011 at the floating Casino Royale, it will be the first time that an APT tournament will be held in India and, as such, is poised to capitalise on the countrys burgeoning and largely untapped poker scene. The schedule for the APT Asian Series Goa will feature seven side events with buy-ins ranging from INR 5000 to INR 20,000 that will include the INR 15,000 Head Hunter, ?Greed and Six-handed events. However, the highlight of the tournament will, of course, be the INR 50,000 buy-in Main Event, which kicks off at 4pm on Friday November 11, 2011. Asian Poker Tour CEO, Jeff Mann, said ?This is a bold and exciting move for the APT. We will be the first international poker tour to hold an event in India. As with any new and radical endeavour, we are sure there will be challenges but we have high expectations that the tournament will be well received amongst the growing Indian poker community and visiting international players.
