This weekend will see two of the driving forces of poker in this region, the PokerStars.net ANZPT and Crown Poker, get together for a week full of poker action!
Crown have organised nine supporting tournaments which will run around the ANZPT Melbourne Main Event just to add that extra value for players looking to make the trip down to Melbourne. The side events range from a $240 single rebuy and add-on event up the $10,300 High Stakes Hold’em tournament. The schedule isn’t all No Limit Hold’em. Other games spread include Eight Game, and a mixed PLO event to keep the well-rounded grinders happy. There will also be a heads-up tournament and the annual Camp Quality Cup charity event, both of which will be sure to prove popular with the punters.
The second annual ANZPT Melbourne will get underway with lead up events from Sunday. On the slate on opening day is a $340 No Limit Hold’em tournament and a $300 step two satellite for the $2,700 ANZPT Main Event which will kick off later in the week. There will also be Spring Carnival Racing on the big screen which will be sure to take some of the focus off the felt.
ANZPT Commissioner Danny McDonagh has already stated that the prize pool in the Main Event is approaching one million dollars and with such a big potential payday, it is likely to bring an event bigger rush of players through the door for the event. The Main Event will also have the added significance of valuable ANZPT Player of the Year points, in what is turning out to be an intriguing and close race to the finish. With just the Darwin event remaining after the Melbourne stop, all of the players in contention for the award will be looking to be at their best of the Crown tournament.
For those that aren’t a fan of the multi-flight day one system, this tournament will run with just a single day one flight on Saturday October 9, with the final table wrapping up on Monday October 11.
