Jeff Mann, chief executive of the Asia Poker Tour which is organising the event in collaboration with Resorts World Manila, confirmed the participation of Phil Ivey and Tom Dwan in a statement this week, noting:
“The Asian Poker Tour and Resorts World Manila are going to make poker history once again and this time it’s by staging Asia’s biggest super high roller event. A buy-in of this magnitude will put the Philippines on the world poker map and the APT is excited to once again be working with Resorts World Manila to make it all possible."
