Titan Poker is one of the leading sponsors of the Asian Poker Tour (APT), and as is frequently offering online satellite tournaments to award free seats to their members into the various main events. With the APT Philippines around the corner, it’s time for Titan Poker to roll out their APT Philippines Super Satellites.
The APT Philippines runs from Aug 23rd until Aug 29. Titan Poker APT Philippines prize packages are worth $5,500 and include the buy-in into the main event, up to $2k for expenses, and 6 nights accommodations at the Manila Marriott Hotel. The actual poker tournament will be played at Resorts World Manila. The direct buy-in for the event is $2,500 + US $200.
Titan Poker satellites into the APT Philippines Main Event come in two different structures. Both structures offer Stage 1 Sit ‘n’ Go satellites and scheduled Stage 1 Satellites to advance players into the APT Philippines Super Satellites where the prize packages to play in the main event in Manila will be awarded. Also, stage 1 satellites advance players directly into the respective APT Philippines Super Satellite, but Titan Poker is even holding Stage 3 satellites starting at just 60 cents advancing players up the ladder to Stage 1 and then the Super Satellite for almost no investment on your part.
The differences between Structure A and Structure B is that Structure A has a higher direct buy-in for the Super Satellites (a $216 Saturday event vs. an $88 Thursday event) and that Structure B offers more add-on and rebuy events.
Titan Poker APT Philippines satellites started on June 21 and will continue up through August 14. The winner of last year’s (2009) APT Philippines was Neil Arce, who claimed a $185,000 payday for his efforts.
The APT Philippines is the kickoff event of this season’s Asian Poker Tour schedule.
Other poker sites that are holding APT Philippines satellites are Celeb Poker (fellow member with Titan Poker of the iPoker Network), PKR, and Party Poker.
