APT, Macau
Poker players in Asia and all over the world are waiting in anticipation for the APT, which will be held at Macau this year. The Tour is aimed at bringing world-class poker experience in the Asia-Pacific as its premier poker tournament.

The Macau government has already issued an official bulletin which allows casinos to spread Texas Hold'em games. The Grand Lisboa casino, the flagship property of Sociedade de Jogos de Macau (SJM) has begun to spread the games. SJM operates 17 casinos in Macau.

Tournament Texas Holdem was first played in Macau during the PokerStars Asia Pacific Poker Tour in November 2007. The tournew was held at the Galaxy Grand Waldo Casino with special permission from the government. The event was a smashing success. Texas Hold'em poker thrived in the largest casino market in the world, even though most of Macau's visitors are ignorant of the game.

Prior to this event, Galaxy had the only "poker room" in Macau, with four Poker Pro machines spreading no-limit hold'em games and two Poker Pro heads-up tournament tables at its flagship property, Star World. During the APPT, the Grand Waldo was also testing a Lightning Poker table, a company operated by professional poker player Brian Haveson.

The casino could have the machines because Macau subscribers automated poker machines to be in the same category as slots.
