|The richest poker tournament in Asia just got richer – organisers of the Asian Poker Classic (APC) have guaranteed a minimum top-up of $250,000 to the prize pool, which means more than $1 million could be available at the first professional poker tournament ever staged in India. |
The Asian Poker Classic, sponsored by MaharajahClub.com, is set to be one of the biggest events on the Eastern poker calendar. A host of top pros, celebrities, and online qualifiers are expected to turn out for the festival of poker which is being held at the five-star Intercontinental Grand Resort in Goa from March 1 until March 5.
Minaxshi Shah, Director of Events at Asian Poker Classic, said, “We expect there will be between 150 and 200 players, and with a $250,000 add-in the equity in this tournament is absolutely astounding.”
“The Asian Poker Classic is not just one of the biggest events scheduled for India in 2007 – it’s one of the biggest poker events anywhere in the world. With Goa as a fantastic location, it will be the most exciting new poker tournament of the year” added Tournament Director Thomas Kremser.
