"Word has got out about this promotion and the phones have been ringing already. Perhaps the best tip for the registration process is to be ready with the refresh button!" said a PartyPoker spokesman.

"We sent a number of players to the opening APT event in the Philippines and all the customer feedback was that the thriller in Manila was the poker trip of a lifetime."

The APT Macau will take place Aug. 27-31 at the Galaxy StarWorld Hotel and Casino. As the second leg of the APT tour this season, the main event in Macau will be offering up a $1.5 million guaranteed prize pool, with the winner walking away with at least $500,000.

The event is sure to attract major players from all over the world. Doyle Brunson and Todd Brunson are already confirmed to attend along with J.C. Tran, Nam Le, Quinn Do and the APT Manila winner David Saab.
