The action is about to begin at the Asian Poker Tour 2020 Online Series 2nd Edition and the race for the Player of the Series takes off. From 14th June to 28th June, Natural8 together with GGNetwork will be hosting the series with $10 Million GTD. This is by far an upgrade from the $1.5 Million GTD at the inaugural APT 2020 Online Series and makes the 2nd Edition the region’s largest online series.
Catering to the Asian Poker Market, the schedule features 234 games with buy-ins starting as low as $10. Get more bang for your buck by taking advantage of the many satellites available and you could be the proud owner of an APT Trophy with just a $5 buy-in.
The series kicked off its pre-event action yesterday with Flights running for the APT Opening and the Mini Main Event. There’s still time to get into the Final Day as there are many more available flights happening this weekend. So get ready to pack those bags and ship it.
