The Asian Poker Tour (APT) has announced a new stop for the start of their 2023 season, giving poker enthusiasts in Asia a reason to celebrate in the new year. The new stop is Hanoi, Vietnam and is replacing the Manila APT that was initially set to be the first destination in 2023.
Nevertheless, APT Hanoi, which runs from February 3–12 in collaboration with the Vietnam Series of Poker (VSOP), will bring Asia’s most renowned poker tour back to the VSOP Club in Hanoi, Vietnam, for the third time in its history.
Neil Johnson, APT President, said:
“These dates have previously been announced for APT Manila, and while unfortunate that we won’t be able to launch the season in the Philippines at the luxurious Newport World Resorts, we are looking forward to an exciting event there in the second half of 2023″.
“Players should absolutely mark down the dates we’ve released for the first half of the year. There will be several thrilling announcements in the coming months you won’t want to miss!”
“While you never like to have to make changes, we’re thrilled that our great partnership with VSOP is allowing us to begin our year in the beautiful city of Hanoi and we’re excited knowing what we will still be able to offer our players in Manila with Newport World Resorts during the second half of 2023.“
The 2023 schedule for the Asian Poker Tour is now the following, pending any changes:
- Feb 3-12: APT Hanoi
- Mar 23-Apr 2: APT Phu Quoc, Vietnam
- Apr 28-May 7: APT Taipei, Taiwan
