ANZPT Auckland Begins Saturday 17 November

Posted at 09:00 2012-11-16 by Matthew Pitt

The ever-popular PokerStars Australia New Zealand Poker Tour (ANZPT) drops anchor in Auckland, New Zealand this weekend and will stay there until Nov.25, during which time there will be seven superb official ANZPT events taking place. It is the first time the ANZPT has visited Auckland and the SKYCITY casino is determined to make sure they put on a real show so it will not be the last time the tour stops by.

Kicking off the Season 5 edition of ANZPT Auckland is a $500+$50 No Limit Hold’em Turbo event at 19:30 on Nov.17. This event is the perfect warm-up for events such as the $550 Pot Limit Omaha, the $220 No Limit Hold’em Ladies Event, the $330 No Limit Hold’em Deepstack and the headline tournament that is the $2,200 ANZPT Auckland Main Event.

All prices quoted are in New Zealand dollars

The first of three starting lights in the $2,000+$200 ANZPT Auckland Main Event begins at precisely 18:30 on Nov.21 with Day 1b starting at the same time on Nov. 22. Those players wishing to play on Day 1c need to be aware that it starts at the earlier time of 12:30 on Nov.23.

A couple of other pointers for those of you heading to Auckland for this historic event. One is the minimum age for participating in any of the events is 20-years old and the dress code is smart casual, meaning no shorts, sandals, sportswear, beach cloths or ripped jeans. Anyone under the age of 20 or sporting the mentioned apparel will not be allowed inside the casino. You have been warned.

PokerNetwork believes there are still rooms available at the SKYCITY Hotel (Premium King/Twin Rooms at $168.00 including GST) and the Grand Hotel (Luxury King/Twin Rooms at $209.00 including GST) but please make sure you check with them before you travel.
