korea-houseThe dust has barely settled in Macau after the Asian Poker Tour held yet another successful APT Macau tournament and the poker circuit is packing its bags again for another major poker tournament. No rest for the weary, so they say.

This time around, the APT will fly to Jeju, Korea to hold the first ever APT Korea poker tournament. While not exactly the first ever APT event in Jeju – earlier this year, the Asian Series Jeju was held in the same locale – this event does mark the first time the APT will be holding a major, week-long tournament in the Korean peninsula.

APT Korea 2013 is set to take place beginning this weekend, August 18, and will run for the entire week until the 23rd at the  Ramada Plaza Hotel in Jeju, Korea.

The $2,700 Main Event is the unquestioned highlight of the event and will no doubt feature some of the best poker pros in the region. Expect a healthy contingent of Korean and Chinese poker pros mixed in with a steady attendance of western poker players, all vying to be called the first ever APT Korea champion. The Main Event will begin on August 20, Tuesday, with Day 1A and will run until the 23rd with the Final Day.

In addition to the Main Event, APT Korea 2013 will also see a significant number of side events running from the first day with the $200 Add-On for Charity tournament all the way up to the last day with the conclusion of the Super High Rollers event. In between, the Asian Poker Tour will also host a series of No Limit Hold’em events, a number of Dafa Poker-sponsored tournaments, a High Rollers event, and the APT’s trademark Head Hunter tournament.
