2013 Deaf Poker Australia Championship to take place at The Star Casino

Posted at 10:45 2013-05-08 by Matthew Pitt

The 2013 edition of the Deaf Poker Australia (DPA) Championship is to take place at The Star Casino between October 25 and October 27, according to a press release from the organisers.

Now in its fifth year, the 2013 DPA Championship is expected to be the biggest and most popular yet thanks in part to the championship coinciding with the New South Wales Deaf Society Centenary celebrations and the World Federation of the Deaf conference.

The 2013 DPA Championship is to feature three tournaments in total, with the $100 buy-in Main Event taking centre stage. The $85+$15 buy-in tournament is open exclusively to Deaf and Hearing Impaired players, features a 15,000 starting stack and 20-minute levels.

Complementing the Main Event are two side events. The first of these tournaments is a $220 buy-in No Limit Hold’em Teams Event and a $600 High Roller Bounty Event.

Sokung Kim, the DPA President, is confident this year’s championship is going to be the biggest yet.

“The 2013 PDA Championship will be unlike any other. I’m definitely looking forward to “The Big Dance” at The Stars – it truly is a wonderful venue and to hold the Fifth Anniversary Edition of the PDA Championship there is beyond our wildest dreams.”

“The 2012 DPA Championship Main Event in Brisbane attracted 89 players, which was our biggest ever field, but we expect to break the 100-player barrier this year.”

The DPA Tournament Director Landon Blackhall is especially excited about the High Roller event.

“The DPA High Roller Bounty Event is a fantastic opportunity for the wider poker community to give back and support us in our work. This event offers incredible value - $400 goes into the prize pool, $100 is offered up as a bounty on every player and the remaining $100 is donated to Deaf Poker Australia.”
