Asia Championship of Poker

Asia Championship of Poker

'PokerStars LIVE at the City of Dreams' will host the 2013 Asia Championship of Poker (ACOP) from October 18-November 3. This year, the 17-day series has 12 ACOP Title Events and features the HKD $100,000 (USD $13,000) Main Event which boasts a whopping HKD $20,000,000 (USD $2.6m) prize pool guarantee.

ACOP Title Events

The focus for most players will be on the prestigious Main Event. However, all tournaments with buy-ins of HKD $8,000 and above, as well as the Rebuy Championship, are considered ACOP Title Events.

In terms of historical significance, these titles will be the measuring stick for all-time achievements at the ACOP. The winners will receive a special ACOP Title 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. Many ACOP Title Events will also have a lower-buy-in version of the same tournament that ranges from HKD $1,000 to $4,000.
