The next big event is a thriller in Manila at end January...and it includes a PLO element
The addition of a pot limit Omaha tournament looks set to make the upcoming Manila leg of the Asian Poker Tour starting end-January more interesting. Taking place at the Dusit Thani Manila resort in Makati, Philippines, the PLO event will be one of six preliminary events on the schedule.
NLHE dominates the other events, although there are variations on the full table-freezeout format, with bounty hunting, rebuy and six-handed play all featuring in the line-up to keep things interesting. A popular Asian game - 13-Card poker - is also being offered.
Last year's APT Manila Main Event attracted a field of 316 players who pursued a first prize of $280 000. Aussie pro David Saab defeated Korean Chris Roh heads up to take the title in 2008.
The 2009 APT Milan main event carries a $2 500+$200 buy-in and is expected to generate a $1 million plus prize pool - big enough to attract international players of note.
