Asia Championship of Poker

Asia Championship of Poker

PokerStars LIVE Macau is proud to host the 2016 Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP), which will take place from October 28 - November 13. The ACOP is an official event of the APPT and features the HK$$100,000 (USD $13,000) buy-in Main Event which comes with the largest guaranteed prize pool in Asia at a whopping HKD$15,000,000 (US $2,000,000)!

Serving as the grand finale for the Asia Player of the Year race, the 17-day poker schedule is comprised of two types of tournaments.

ACOP Title Events

The focus for most players will be on the 17 ACOP Title Events up for grabs including the prestigious Main Event and its Gold Spadie trophy.

In terms of historical significance, these titles are the measuring stick for all-time achievements at the ACOP. The winners will receive a special ACOP Spadie trophy in recognition of their accomplishment.

Regular Events

If you love poker but don't have a big bankroll, that shouldn't stop you from coming to experience the thrill and excitement of the ACOP. Nearly every ACOP Title Event will also have a lower-buy-in version of the same tournament that ranges from HK$500 to HK$3,000.
