The Asia Player of the Year  award returns in 2014, with another illustrious PokerStars LIVE Macau one-year sponsorship deal up for grabs. Not only will the eventual APOY win  entry into many PokerStars Macau tournaments in 2015, but they will also have their name permanently etched on the APOY trophy that is proudly displayed in the PokerStars Macau poker room.

In 2013 the APOY was a hotly contested battle, but in the end their could only be one winner and it was Jian Yang who was crowned the Asia Player of the Year.

Yang joined past champions Kitty Kuo (2009), Team PokerStars Pro Bryan Huang (2010), Hung-Sheng "Shaq" Lin (2011) and Yosuke Sekiya (2012).
