This year will include 24 ACOP Title Events where every victory will award to the winner one of the renowned ACOP Spadie trophies. Becoming the overwhelming focus by and by will be the HK$100,000 (~USD $13,000) Main Event which is accompanied by an incredible HK$25 million GTD prize pool – the biggest in Asia’s history.

Altogether, there will be 50 cash tournament all through the 17-day series with a wide assortment of buy-ins ranging from HK$1,000 to HK$800,000. Mark Blake, Head of Live Events in the Asia Pacific, said, “The Asia Championship of Poker has seen tremendous growth from 2015 to 2016 with player participation increasing by 47%.” In addition to this he said,” Both the PokerStars Championship Macau and Macau Poker Cup set new records this season and so everything indicates that the ACOP will make its next great leap this October.”

Vladimir Geshkenbein won the Main Event a year ago and claimed the title on both the European Poker Tour and the Asia Pacific Poker Tour. The 29-year old Swiss player bagged HK$5,643,000 alongside the coveted Gold Spadie trophy. Geshkenbein’s triumph granted him an entry into the current year’s Main Event; a long standing convention for ACOP champions since the series started in 2012.
