On Thursday, the Asian Poker Tour (APT) Manila Millions with a massive HK$1,000,000 buy-in (about $129,000) kicked off at Resorts World Manila. 18 players (Joseph Hachem, Sam Trickett and a few other big names) signed up for the tournament and 4 of them even made a rebuy. After several hours of play, the first day came to an end with 7 men still "standing".

Joseph Cheong, an American poker pro with over $6 million in live tournament winnings, will bring the largest pile of chips to play today (738,000) and he will be joined by the likes of Thomas McDonald (695,000), Peter Chan (688,000), Richard Yong (416,000), Paul Phua (350,000), David Benefield (253,000) and Tore Lukashangen (180,000)

Four of the remaining seven players will receive a piece of the HK$24,000,000 prize pool (22x1m + 2m added by the Genting Club and Resorts World Manila) and the winner will take home a whopping HK$10,428,000 (approx.$1,340,000).

It might not have kicked off with a flourish or a sea of eager players, but the Asian Poker Tour Manila Millions' $129,000 event has generated a prizepool of over $3 million.
With a $250,000 injection from the Genting Club, a number of familiar faces were amongst the 18 runners on Day 1.

Any more updates on this, i mean the prize pool seems to be pretty solid especially since some players decided to rebuy!

I guess someone that said that the capital of poker will move the next years in Asia was right Smile

Seven players final table but prizes only for the final four, consequence of the little initial field. Still soon to talk about favourites, similar amounts of chips.
