Well it has been a fantastic series so far and as the fourth leg of the Australia New Zealand Poker Tour (ANZPT) rolls into Queenstown, it promises to get even better! SKYCITY Queenstown Casino will become home to around 200 of the best players from our region and indeed all over the world. With the action scheduled to kick off from the 20th of July, New Zealand’s adventure capital, Queenstown, will be jam-packed with top notch poker players from Australia, New Zealand and even far away countries such as Canada, Germany, Israel, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, United Kingdom and the United States of America.
Considering how close the beginning of this tournament is to the end of the WSOP, Queenstown will see more aeroplanes flying in from the City of Sin than they ever have before. ANZPT Queenstown is certainly the talk of the town and why wouldn’t it be? With the field cap of 200 players expecting to be reached, players will be doing what they can to take away their piece of the $450,000NZD that is up for grabs!
Something that is unique to this leg of the ANZPT is that players have the opportunity to take advantage of some of the amazing extreme sports and activities that make Queenstown such a great place to visit! Some of the fantastic opportunities on offer include a flight to Milford Sound for a player and a guest, skiing on some of Queenstown’s world renowned slopes and for the wilier of competitors there is the opportunity to Bungee Jump!
SKYCITY Queenstown’s Executive Manager Michelle Baillie says, “With SKYCITY Queenstown hosting such a world class tournament in one of New Zealand’s best tourist destinations, the added tourist options and accommodation over the week will increase the economic benefit that these players, their friends and family will have on the region.”
The ANZPT Queenstown is just over one week away and it promises to be great! Make sure you get yourself over there and if you can’t, then stay tuned to PokerNetwork.com for regular updates.
