This time last year it was the likes of Todor Kondevski, Chris Levick, Kristian Lunardi and Sean Dunwoodie taking the Melbourne Poker Championships by storm, but in 2010 it can be you in the spotlight!
As the SCOOP and MiniFTOPS start to whet the appetites of tournament junkies, amateurs and veterans alike can get some real chips and cards in their hands by heading to the Crown Poker Room from May 16– 31st to participate in the ninth running of the Melbourne Poker Championships.
Fifteen tournaments are on the schedule this year with the $175 Opening Event kicking things off this Sunday before the $1,100 Main Event wraps things up in the last week of the month. Again we will see the winner-takes-all $100,000 Challenge and the $5,200 High Stakes Holdem, while the new $550 Heads Up NLH/PLO and $550 8 Game will surely generate some interest.
Always popular amongst those that cannot shell out amounts for the bigger buy-in events, the highly successful Morning Series has returned; albeit a new name of the Midday Series. Four events make up the Midday Series with each being a $100 No Limit Holdem Event where you can gain points to play off for a seat in the Main Event.
