What is the Asia Poker League?

The Asia Poker League was founded in 2016 by Korean game promoter Judic Kim. The inaugural live event was held at the Beijing Poker Club (BPC), with 465 people competing in the Main Event. Attendance increased to 911 in April 2017. APL chose Shanghai as the destination for their second live event in November 2017.

While the APL was mostly centered on the Central Asian area, it was also staged three times at the Star Casino in Australia. Additional stops have been made in Vietnam, South Korea, Taiwan, and the Philippines.

Natural8 hosted the APL festival in the virtual arena for the first time earlier this year. Because of the great reaction, the second edition of this online series will return in just four months.
