Online PR News – 22-January-2015 – Manila, Philippines – The Asian Poker Tour (APT) has announced it will open the first APT Poker Room at the Manila Pavilion Casino Filipino in Ermita, Manila, Philippines, before the end of February. The room will consist of eight operating cash tables as well as tournament tables.

“For us it’s very much a strategic business move that we have been exploring for some time now; when suitable space became available at the very busy Casino Filipino at the Manila Pavilion we thought it ideal for what we want to achieve moving forward,” said APT CEO Jeff Mann.
“We have already set the dates for our events there in 2015 and expect to stage at least two events per year at RWM for many years to come. The APT Poker Room will simply fuel more players through satellite tournaments to these events as it will for all APT tournaments being organized in other countries,” added Mann.
