Danish poker player, Carl Hostrup, won $320,000 at the inaugural Asian Poker Classic.

Imran Hassan, the Director of Operations for the Asian Poker Classic, said that they are excited about the Asian Poker Class II. They will be planning a larger and better tournament this time around. The worldwide influence of the game of poker continues to grow as India proves that it can successfully host an international tournament.

Aside from participating in the poker tournament, the location of Goa is also a prime spot for poker players to go to the beach. The resort town of Goa in India may sound familiar to some people thanks to the opening scenes of the movie, Bourne Supremacy, starring Matt Damon which was filmed in Goa.
