Thought I'd do a quick update. PokerStars is now awarding 5 seats to the APPT Macau Main Event a day! Online Satellites are neeearly awarding 2 seats so the daily qualifiers could increase.

At this pace we should easily have 200 online players alone and all signs point towards the biggest APPT field in 3 years!

Hey Fred

Thanks for the update. Quick question, can we do online buyin for all the events? I am asking because i think I will barely make it for Event 2 on Friday. So would like to do an online buyin.

If yes, how many days in advance can i do direct buyin through pokerstars?

Thanks for anyone answering my questions in advice.

Yes, you can register for ALL PokerStars Macau events online at PokerStars. Go to "Events" tab, then click "Macau" -- you'll see all of them available now.

Just note that all the APPT Macau numbered events have a 2-hour late registration where you will get a full chip stack. If you register online then the benefit is that you guarantee yourself a seat (you won't be an alternate), you get FPPs, but your chips come out right at the start time.

Hello Fred,

Are the dates for the different packages on PS known and fixed already (both for the Grand Lisboa packages and the Hotel Lisboa packages). If they are fixed, when are the 6 nights?

Thanks

Hi soulmekki,

All the APPT Macau packages that include hotel should be putting the players into Day 1A which is November 23. Assuming that is correct, then Check-in date is 1-day before on Nov. 22.

Everything is DEFINITELY fixed as the hotels are running at 100% that week.

For specific tournament info please email info@appt.com

Good luck and hope to see you there!

- Fred
