August 15, 2012 - For the first time in history, the Asian Poker Tour will step outside of Asia and hold its next stop on the beautiful island of Mauritius from the 19th to 26th of August, 2012.
Eight days of fun filled poker action with local Mauritian players having to battle it out against poker players from Reunion, South Africa, Asia and the rest of the world.
The event will take place in Ti Vegas Casino at Grand Bay, which has held the biggest gathering of players in a tournament in the zone of Mascareignes.
The Main Event features a EUR 900 buy-in along with 10 Side Events with various buy-ins including Ladies of Poker Event on the 21st of August and a Charity Event on the 19th of August, which pays homage to an aspiring young poker player, Kevin Douce, whose death marked a great loss in the booming Mauritian poker industry.

Currently lying 2nd in the APT Player of the Year standings with six cashes already at APT 2012 events earning him 696.4 points behind leader Martin Nilsson from Sweden with 760.2, no one at APT doubted Anderson’s resolve and determination to do just that.
To prove the point, Anderson finished 4th in the opening side event at APT Asian Series Mauritius 2012, securing an additional 52.8 points taking his total points standing to 749.2, just eleven points shy of Nilsson.

Liam Anderson, in town specifically to earn additional APT Player of the Year points had cause for early celebration yesterday: as one of the final 20 players left in the tournament, which only took 48 minutes of play for the “bubble” to burst putting the remaining 18 players, including Liam, ‘in the money’, he earned himself sufficient points to move to the top of the APT Player of the Year leader board. Liam finished his tournament run soon after when a Jack was dealt on the flop in an all situation prompted by Liam before the flop holding A4. His opponent turned over AJ.

Mauritius, August 26, 2012 – With Liam Anderson achieving his goal of gaining sufficient player points at this week’s APT Asian Series Mauritius to take him to the top of the 2012 APT Player of the Year standings, passing previous leader Martin Nilsson, he did not count on needing to look over his shoulder until next month’s APT Asian Series Manila to see who would be challenging him for the top spot during the remaining three APT events of 2012.
What Liam did not factor-in was the surprise arrival in Mauritius of Sam Razavi from the UK.
“I’m currently in 8th position on the APT Leader Board with three cashes to my name and not that many points away from the leaders: it was either EPT Barcelona or APT Asian Series Mauritius and I chose to be here”, said Sam.
Liam thought he was safe with a 4th place finish in this week’s opening event and 13th in the main event, securing him a further 92.80 valuable player points taking his year to date total to 789.20 relegating Martin Nilsson to 2nd spot with 760.20 points.
But Liam’s reign at the top of the APT Leader Board was short lived. On Saturday night with APT week coming to a close, Sam Razavi took down his first APT trophy, winning the € 400 Freezeout Event and gaining 240 extra player points. And yesterday as the final table of the main event was being played out, Sam secured a valuable 3rd place finish in the last side event of the tournament week getting him 100 points further, giving him a year to date total of 833 and the top spot on the APT Player of the Year Leader Board.
A delighted Sam Razavi now leading the race for APT Player of the Year 2012
“I came to APT Asian Series Mauritius to get more player points, but I did not expect to take the lead this week – I’m absolutely delighted”, said a smiling Sam Razavi.
Current Top Five APT Player of the Year Points:
1) Samad Razavi (England) – 833.00
2) Liam John Anderson (Australia) – 789.20
3) Martin Sampath Nilsson (Sweden) – 760.20
4) Marc Rivera (Philippines) – 573.00
5) Carlos Chang (Taiwan) – 540.00
With three APT events still to go this year: Manila, Cambodia and India, it looks like it is going to be a very close race to the finish for the very prestigious title of APT Player of the Year.
08-27-2012, 11:55 PM
Mauritius, August 27, 2012 – After 114 entries from 11 countries, the first APT Asian Series event held outside Asia became a local Islands’ event with the final table consisting of three players from Mauritius, one from Seychelles and six from Reunion Island.
APT Asian Series Mauritius 2012 Final Table
After seven hours of non-stop action which saw the chip lead change numerous times, two locals were left standing: Danny Cho and Bruno Tadebois both from Mauritius with equal number of chips in front of them to do heads-up battle for the prestigious APT title.
With the Main Event offering a total prize pool of € 89,740, it meant that one player would leave with the APT Champion’s Trophy, valuable Player of the Year points and € 22,840 in cash. The 2nd place finisher would walk away having some consolation of € 13, 400 deposited in his pocket.
But it was not until the first hand of round 28 with the blinds at 25k-50k and antes at 5k, and after almost ten hours of final table play, when Cho raised to 100,000 on pre-flop and was immediately re-raised all in by Tadebois. Eventually the call came and the players tabledhttp://www.theasianpokertour.com/card/qh.pnghttp://www.theasianpokertour.com/card/jh.png from Cho and http://www.theasianpokertour.com/card/ad.pnghttp://www.theasianpokertour.com/card/ks.png from Tadebois.
