History

The Asian Poker Tour (APT) is specifically an Asia-Pacific poker tour. November 2006 marks the first Asian Poker Tour that was held in Singapore under the umbrella of Capital Events Pte. And the first champion to win the tour was poker player Tony G. But in early 2008, APT was acquired by the well-known AsianLogic that highly focuses on providing exceptional poker experience to poker players in Asia. The success of APT was appreciated by all over the world.

The Asian Poker Series is all about offering an outstanding poker experience to enthusiastic poker lovers in Asia. The series are full of excitement and fun. And so, to amuse and entertain poker lovers in Asia the Asian Poker Tour was held in many cities including Goa, India (scheduled from November 8th-14th, 2011) which is known as Asia’s most popular poker destinations. The Tour also aims to promote and give a boost to the popularity of the game in Asia by extending assistance and organizing smaller events at varied locations.

Jeff Mann, Asian Poker Tour CEO, said “This is a bold and exciting move for the APT. We will be the first international poker tour to hold an event in India. As with any new and radical endeavour, we are sure there will be challenges but we have high expectations that the tournament will be well received amongst the growing Indian poker community and visiting international players.”

Terms of Use

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
