Asia Pacific Poker Tour

Manila will be hosting the first leg of the first ever "three-legged" tournament. Buy-in for the Main Event is a beggarly $2,500. For cheap lemons, Level 1 Satellites are being held at different locations around Metro Manila [Sidespin, Capone's, UCC, Can't-Remember-The-Rest] with a buy-in of Php1,400+100. Winners of Level 1 move on to -- yep, you guessed it -- Level 2, buy-in for which is Php12,500+. Those who advance from here get a seat to the Main Event -- like winning $2,500 = Php114,450.

For even cheaper lemons like myself, main sponsor offers Freeroll tournaments everyday at 7pm. The top 10 of each tournament moves on to compete for the Main Event seat. Today I finished 63rd out of 210. I lasted an hour and a half and got knocked out playing pocket 10s against ladies. I lost to a fellow Pinoy residing in Korea -- who cares?? I digress.
