On 1st May, 2012, Tuesday, the WSOP (World Series of Poker) executive Director Ty Steward and Melbourne’s Crown Casino Executive Director, in Australia officially revealed the introduction of the APAC (WSOP Asia-Pacific).
With the success registered by the World Series of Poker Las Vegas and the World Series of Poker Europe, Ty Stewart desired to seize the Asian poker picture and as of the repute of Aussie Millions, he believed that a concern with Crown Casino in Melbourne is an splendid choice to assure the success of this brand new competition series. The target in making this brand new tour is to make a world grand slam.
The 1st edition of the World Series of Poker APAC is scheduled to happen in the well known Crown Casino poker room from 4th April to 15th April, 2013. It will be a long series of 5 championships which will allow participants to grab a World Series of Poker bracelet, the most desired by poker professionals.
Remember that this possible visit of the World Series of Poker in Australia especially enjoyed fans of poker and Crown Casino’s owner. This is a nice opportunity to encourage this industry’s development in the region. Joe Hachem said that it is like a dream come real. The world champ in the year 2005 also told that he is ready to participate in this top event. This is the very first World Series of Poker APAC will be telecast on ESPN.
