Betfair Asian Poker Tour

Players have paid the US$5000 buy-in for the Main Event at the Betfair Asian Poker Tour. For a field of 400, first place will pay US$558,700, second place US$299,800 and third place US$149,000, from a prize pool of roughly $2m. This is the largest poker tournament to take place in Asia and the first poker event in Singapore, said Betfair's Head of Poker Ben Fried, we are privileged to host such a groundbreaking event, which is being held from 12 Nov to 17 Nov 2006.

Players from thirty-two countries around the world will join a large contingent of local players for the three day Main Event, starting on 15 November, in the Mandarin Ballroom of the Meritus Mandarin Hotel, Singapore.
Pro Poker players such as World Poker Tour champion Gus Hansen, the "Poker diva" Liz Lieu, John "The Razor" Phan, Martin De Knijff, Harry Demetriou and Mel Judah will be making their appearances too. So, if you think you can win, think again maybe you need to think twice too. Or give up your thinking (can you imagine they are so pro that they have their own official website and tons of write-ups on them in the poker world news). Personally, I don't encourage gambling. You may not know what hardships these people and maybe their personal families have gone through.
