APT India - Casino CarnivalAPT India - Casino Carnival

The Asian Poker Tour (APT) season is about to close but with the APT India 2012 as its final event for the year, it feels like just a new beginning because of a historic one-week event that surely will be a sign of things to come for poker in the region.

The APT India 2012 is scheduled from December 3 to 9, 2012 on board the classy Casino Carnival in Goa, India.  With a INR 1,50,000 buy-in (roughly US $2,750) for the APT India 2012 Main Event, the APT brings to South Asia the high-stakes, high-quality poker regularly seen in the Philippines and Macau. Completing the fully-loaded week are seven satellites to the main event as well as seven side events including the PokerAce High Rollers (INR 3,00,000) and the FundooPoker Freezeout event (INR 25,000).

The front-runner for the APT Player of the Year (POY) race is Samad Razavi from England. With the ultimate APT event in India, he has the inside track to the POY award with 1,445.80 points thus far. Completing the top five in this contest are Sweden’s Martin Nillson (1,085.40), Thailand’s Liam Anderson (963.60), Japan’s Tetsuya Tsuchikawa (747.80) and Philippines’ Marc Rivera (691.80).
