Company's APPT sponsors 2015 Nanjing Millions.
PokerStars.eu is continuing to help support the growth of poker in China with the sponsorship of the 2015 Nanjing Millions. The CN¥1 million ($159,000) guaranteed Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) China poker tournament, which has been sanctioned by the Jiangsu Provincial Chess Sports Association, will run April 14-19, 2015 at the Jiangsu Wutaishan Sports Centre.
The Olympic venue, which is in Nanjing in the Jiangsu Province, will give the growing number of Chinese poker fans an opportunity to test their skills in the 62,000-seat stadium.
“The growth of poker in China has been tremendous and we are committed to support this sport throughout the region,” said APPT President Danny McDonagh Friday. “Nanjing is a key location that allows players from all over the country to participate. The previous two Beijing events last year were very successful and we are proud to be a part of this government-supported event”.
