Nobody can wait for the next PokerStars.net ANZPT in Sydney, after the success of the Adelaide tournament opening up a very exciting year for this new circuit. Star City has announced an excellent schedule that starts off with direct satellites as early as April the 6th, with the first event of the series to start on April the 23rd. There are a total of 10 events to entertain all of the poker crowd.
 
Many of the top local stars will be expected to be present with PokerStars lining up all of its local pros to participate. Expect to see World Champion Joe Hachem, Aussie Millions winner Stewart Scott, locals Grant Levy and Eric Assadourian as well as sponsored pros Emad Tahtouh, Tony Hachem and Celina Lin.
 
April 23rd is the first event with a $275 No Limit Hold’em tournament. This is guaranteed to draw plenty of local players to warm up for the Main Event. This even features a day flight and a night flight before day 2 of the event. Anzac Day on the 25th is presented with a $550 Anzac Day Hold’em special tournament. The 26th is a very nice $330 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em tournament that should definitely ignite the crowd.
 
April 27th invites all casino workers and poker media to come together for an exclusive tournament. This will be an entertaining affair with dealers taking their turn on the felt with bragging rights on the line!
 
April 28th gives all the Omaha specialists their chance to shine with a $275 Pot Limit Omaha tournament that also allows one rebuy. Hold’em players get a day off before they can participate in the $550 6-max event on April the 29th.
 
April 30th starts off Day 1 Flight 1 of the $2,200 Main Event of the ANZPT. May 1 and May 2 are scheduled for the Main Event Day 2 and 3 respectively. Players who bust early can throw themselves into the $10,200 High Rollers Challenge on May 2nd. The $550 Teams Event rounds up the ANZPT Sydney on May the 3rd.
 
Karl Krautshneider stormed through 215 players for $170,215 first prize money in the first ANZPT. The second PokerStars.net ANZPT looks set to have many more players eyeing the top spot and a much bigger prize pool. This event is set to explode!
