The main event of the APPT will take place on May 12, when most players have been eliminated. This event will run for four days and has an entrance fee of KRW 2 million or about $1,500. While expensive, the prizes more than cover the entrance fees. One of the APPT winners in 2022 won twenty times that entrance fee for his grand prize!

While the main event may be the highlight of the tournament, the APPT also offers a variety of other events that cater to different types of players

Aside from the main event, other events include the APPT kickoff and the APPT national which have smaller entrance fees and smaller prizes. If you are someone who is a bit more conservative with risks, these might be the games for you.

However, if you are a risk taker, then the high roller and super high roller events are the games for you. These have a high entrance fee, even higher than the main event, but they have much higher rewards. It doesn’t matter how you play poker, there is sure to be something for you to enjoy.

While there isn’t too much information about what will happen this May, you can get an idea of what is in store based on last year’s events. In 2022 the Asia Pacific Poker Tour Cambodia was held last year in November. During the APPT national event, the winners were the Korean UPP Team.

The Asia Pacific Poker Tour was an exciting event for its participants, including Lee Seong-Min, who won the grand prize of $30,000 or nearly 40 million Won. Another talented player was Kim Nam-hyuan, who performed exceptionally well and achieved 10th place in the main event. This set the record for the highest ranking achieved by any Korean player in the tournament. Overall, the Asia Pacific Poker Tour was a thrilling experience for all involved, and while these stories happened last year, it gives hope to the players who will arrive this year and what they might be able to achieve in Asia Pacific Poker Tour Cambodia.
