Since the announcement in February, the event has been the talk of the town with players from around the world expected to make the trip. Signs of a massive turnout have emerged. On April 6, APT announced the High Rollers Early Bird Special was already sold out. The following day, the popular Vietnam high roller event – Superstar Challenge – was added to the roster, and two events were switched to accommodate high roller demands.

The APT Taipei 2023 festival takes place from April 28 to May 7 at the Asia Poker Arena, the newest poker room in the country. The series will be the first to break it in. The Main Event is from May 1 to 6 with four entry flights. Buy in is NT$ 50,000 (~US$ 1,640).
