After a successful stop in Macau last month, the Asian Poker Tour’s next destination is the exotic island of Mauritius. Splashing down at the Ti Vegas Casino, Grand Bay, Mauritius on August 19-26, APT Asian Series Mauritius 2012 will mark the first time that the APT has stepped outside its traditional home of Asia to hold a fully-fledged tournament.
For those players who might not know anything about the holiday island, Mauritius is located east of Madagascar, off the southeast coast of Africa. Its white sandy beaches and turquoise waters have landed it many travel awards and it has one of the highest rates of returning visitors in the world.
With a ton of luxurious hotel options available, those looking to take advantage of cheap player rates at the APT partner hotel of the Lux Grand Gaube have only a couple more days to do so. Reservations must be done before August 10 or will miss out on the discount.
On the poker side of things, the tournament will be headlined by a €900 Main Event and serve up eight side events with buy-ins ranging from €110 to €440 as well as a €2,200 high rollers event.
Tournament organisers are predicting at least 200 entries for the Main Event and could see many of South Africa’s players making the short trek over. While we have had word that notable South African player Conrad Coetzer won’t be making it to Mauritius, it’s likely that APT Philippines 2012 champion from South Africa, Divan Le Roux, will be making an appearance.
APT Asian Series Mauritius is being billed as the APT’s own version of the European Poker Tour’s PokerStars Caribbean Adventure and will combine an amazing tropical destination, great poker action and, no doubt, piña coladas aplenty on tap.
