2012 Sydney Poker Championships: The Story So Far

Posted at 17:50 2012-08-07 by Matthew Pitt

The 2012 Sydney Poker Championships are in full swing at the Star City Casino and what a series it has been so far. With a couple of events in the bag it is easy to see why this festival was eagerly anticipated as the attendances have been through the roof.

Event #1 saw a bumper field of 825 players, a field that would not have been out of place thousands of miles away in Las Vegas. That event was eventually won by Simon Dwyer who defeated Suzy Khoueis heads-up for the title and the $57,915 first place prize.

Event #2 was the Poker Media $1,000 Special and it certainly was special; at it was special for Antonis Kambouroglou. Kambouroglo was the man who walked away from the Star City Casino with the $25,800 first place prize and bragging rights that come with winning a major live tournament.
