Manila Megastack 9: ₱17M in Guaranteed Prize Money

The Asia Pacific Poker Tour has had an action packed April and the month’s exciting conclusion arrives at PokerStars LIVE Manila for Manila Megastack9 from April 27-May 6.

Over ₱17 million in prize money has been guaranteed in the 10-day series which includes 26 Official Asia Player of the Year events.

Clearly, the biggest highlight will be the ₱30,000 Main Event which comes with a ₱10 million prize pool guarantee and begins on May 4. What’s more, the good folks at PokerStars will award the Main Event winner a PSPC Platinum Pass worth USD $30,000! Converted into Philippine Peso, that’s more than ₱1.56 million in added value to the top prize!!

Let me put it in perspective. Japan’s Akinari Yokomizo defeated a field of 624 entrants to win the Manila Megastack title last December. The victory earned Yokomizo ₱3,210,000 which means a similar-sized field this time around would get a boost of nearly 50%!

For those seeking a bigger thrill, there are two big buy-in events leading into the Main Event: the ₱50,000 NLH Freezeout (₱3M GTD) and ₱100,000 Single Day High Roller — both of which make use of the 30-second shot clock. Last time, the two events combined for 117 entrants with prize money weighing in at ₱7.4 million.

Tournaments at PokerStars LIVE Manila have been surging upwards all year and so there’s a sense of optimism that more records will fall when the ninth edition of the Manila Megastack kicks off on Friday, April 27.
