The Manny Pacquiao World Poker Event

Poker’s got a new face:  The Manny Pacquiao World Poker Event is coming and, judging by the popularity of this amazing fighter, this tournament should be a smashing success. 

The event will take place December 7-12, 2011 at the Pan Pacific Hotel’s Asia Poker Sports Club in Malate, Philippines.  The tournament will become an official Asian Poker Tour Accredited Event. 

Pacquiao, a ten-time world boxing title holder, is also a member of the Philippine House of Representatives and also a great supporter of poker in the region.

Featuring a PHP 500,000 buy-in High Rollers, PHP 11,000 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha event and a PHP 50,000 buy-in Main Event, the large amount of money on offer over the six-day inaugural tournament looks set to attract a high-calibre field of players. Those wanting to secure a seat cheaply will be able to satellite their way in but will have to wait for further details on satellite tournaments to be posted on the APT website in the future.

Asian Poker Tour Tournament Director, Lloyd Fontillas, who will be running the tournament, said, “The APT is obviously proud to be ensuring its popular and trusted protocol is followed at the Manny Pacquiao World Poker Event. I’m sure it will be a pleasure working with such a respected personality as Manny and we’re looking forward to seeing a large turnout come December 7.”
