The inaugural event will be a 3 day $2,500 No Limit Hold'em tournament in Manilla. Team Pokerstars will be represented by non other than Joe Hachem and Daniel Negreanu. Later stops on the tour include Seoul, Korea and the final in Sydney.
Not only will you get the regular updates right here at Pokernews, for the first time ever we will be updating in Chinese and Japanese too. PokerNews Marketing Director Gareth Edwards:
"We pride ourselves on being leaders in emerging poker markets, and hope our Chinese and Japanese readers enjoy reading updates in their own language for the very first time."
The Pokernews live update schedule is filling up very fast. Next week from August 24th we will be in Manilla, then it is straight to the opening EPT event in Barcelona at the end of the month.
