ANZPT Melbourne Schedule Announced

Posted at 14:45 2012-09-29 by Matthew Pitt

It may have only been a few short weeks ago that the Australia New Zealand Poker Tour (ANZPT) descended on the Crown Casino, Melbourne but the popular tour returns again at the end of October for the first event of the ANZPT's fifth season.

Running between Oct.11 and Oct. 20m, the ANZPT Melbourne festival will feature 12 official events that should attract some of the best poker players from the region. Kicking things off will be a $250 event that is sure to be extremely popular and that will be followed by a $50 tournament that will boast a massive $100,000 guaranteed prize pool! $100,000 for just $50, wow!

Although each and every event will be fiercely contested it will be the $2,200 ANZPT Melbourne Main Event that everyone wants to win. The last time the ANZPT was at the Crown Casino it was for the season-ending Grand Final and it featured a $4,700 Main Event. That particular tournament attracted 257 runners and was eventually won by the British pro Sam Razavi, who walked way with $326,125. Razavi has a fondness for tournaments in Australia so we fully expect him to return to the Crown to attempt to win back-to-back ANZPT titles.

As is always the case with these superb festivals, there will be satellites to the Main Event hosted on PokerStars and at the Crown Casino itself. Download PokerStars through PokerNetwork, use the marketing code POKERNETWORK and the bonus code STARS600 and you will be eligible for a 100% match up to $600 first deposit bonus and be able to participate in all future promotions we hold on PokerStars.
