APPT Satellites and Top 10 Referrals

By Pauly
Hollyweird, CA

The second season of the Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) kicks off in September in Macau. Spearhaded by Danny McDonagh and Jeffrey Haas and sponsored by PokerStars, the APPT has become one of the most successful tournament series outside of North America.

And the best part? The entry fees into APPT events are substantially lower (Macau is $3,200) than buy-ins into EPT events. Plus, the US Dollar is doing a lot better in Asia than it is in Europe.

Here's the schedule...
2008 APPT Schedule:
Macau, China - September 1-9, 2008
Seoul, South Korea - September 26-28, 2008
Auckland, New Zealand - October 9-12, 2008
Manila, Philippines - November ???
Sydney, Australia - December 2-7, 2008

APPT Macau will be played at the Grand Waldo Hotel & Casino.

Satellites to Macau are running right now on PokerStars. If you want a free trip to Hong Kong and Macau, an APPT satellite on PokerStars is your best bet.

Traffic was exceptional during the last two months. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Tao of Poker for your daily WSOP fix.

After two months in Las Vegas, I finally had a chance to look at the source of my traffic. People type bizarre shit into google and yahoo and find themselves here.

For example, here are five searches that made me nearly spit out my drink as I sifted through the logs...

3. Ylon Schwartz domestic dispute
4. can u get a blowjob from a stripper in the vip room at the glitter gulch
5. is there an instant pill or drink that will make your penis rock hard that really works even if you take medication?
I wish I could make this stuff up. OK, my question is... why would anyone want to get a hummer from a stripper at the glitter gulch?

Moving on...

I wanna say thank you to my Top 10 referrals over the last two months.

Over the last two months, I was fortunate to get several heady links from Fark, NBCSports, Busted Coverage, and Wall Street Fighter. Thanks for the love!

Special thanks to my favorite Wall Street blog, Dealbreaker, especially Joe Weisenthal, who linked me up several times during the WSOP. Thanks bro. Keep up the stellar work on Dealbreaker where I get most of my late night financial reading fix. I say late because by the time I'm going to bed on the Left Coast, Joe has been up several hours plugging away to get the Opening Bell posts up by 7am.
