The biggest news for Season 8 of the Asia Pacific Poker Tour is the agreement with Crown Melbourne to have the 2014 Aussie Millions Poker Championship added to the APPT schedule. The AUD $10,600 Main Event takes place from February 2 till February 9.
“The Aussie Millions is thought of as one of the major poker events in the poker world and by affiliating with the biggest poker tour in the region, the Asia Pacific Poker Tour will further guarantee the event’s success in the coming years,” said Xavier Walsh, Crown Melbourne Chief Operating Officer. “This initiative will provide Crown with significant exposure in Asia, Europe and America, and forms an integral part of Crown’s global marketing strategy to attract further international visitors to Australia and Crown Melbourne”.
“The Aussie Millions becoming part of the APPT is a great fit for both Crown Melbourne and Global Poker Tours Ltd.” said McDonagh. “Linking one of the best tournaments in Asia Pacific with the region’s biggest poker tour benefits everyone. Personally, I can’t wait to again be actively involved in one of the very top big buy-in events in the world.”
