Not even 2 weeks have passed since Antonio "The Magician" Esfandiari took down the most expensive tournament in poker history, The Big One for One Drop at the 2012 WSOP, for bank-busting $18,346,673! Now it seems like a new big high roller tournament is on its way...
According to what Richard Yong, an Asian billionaire businessman who finished 8th in One Drop, said in an interview next year's WSOP APAC will have a $500k buy-in tournament with one re-entry. Yong thinks that the tournament might become a success since there is no tax like in the U.S.
According to what WSOP reported in April, the WSOP Asia-Pacific will feature five bracelet events and will run April 4th - April 15th, 2013.
