2012 has been a pretty sweet, albeit hectic, year for the Asian Poker Tour. If for nothing else, it’s been the busiest they’ve ever had, thanks in large part to a roster of events that saw them host tournaments in the Philippines, Macau, India, London, and yeah, even Mauritius.
So now that 2012 is a little over three months away from concluding, the Asian Poker Tour’s highly popular Asian Series is also set to have it’s final event. And what better place to do it than hitting up Cambodia, a country that may not have the cache as a poker hotbed, but is increasing in popularity as we speak.
So from November 14 to 20, 2012, the Asian Poker Tour will once again pack its bags for the final leg of the 2012 Asian Series in Cambodia. The weeklong tournament will feature the usual cadre of poker tournaments, highlighted by a Main Event that carries a $1,100 buy-in. Likewise, a total of nine side events are also being planned as is the staple Add On for Charity event, and a multitude of satellite tournaments leading up to the Main Event.
The venue for the 2012 Asian Series Cambodia will be at the Las Vegas Sun Hotel & Casino, which is located in Svay Rieng near the Vietnam-Cambodia border. In case you’re touching down at Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam, the casino is approximately 1.5 hours away from the airport. But if you’re flying in from the Pnom Penh Airport in Cambodia, travel time will reach 2.5 hours.
Fresh off of the success of the 2012 Asian Series Manila, the APT will be recharging its batteries in preparation for the final leg of the Asian Series in Cambodia. And if you know how these guys run their tournaments, you can be sure that they’re bringing the full spectacle of an Asian Poker Tour event to Cambodia this coming November.
