The Macau fields are usually soft and I am keen to go back again to Macau which has been a favourite hunting ground for me. I am playing three events only APPT National, Main Event and the PokerStars Asia Open. After that, I am travelling straight to Manila to take part in the APT Manila.”

Sapra would be reaching Macau on March 16 and shared his plans for the series, “I am playing the Main event, the HK$10,000 National, the HK$6,000 Asia Open and maybe one or 2 other side events depending on how I do in these.”
