The eagerly anticipated PokerStars ANZPT Sydney Main Event kicks off today and it promises to be one of the biggest and best events on this amazing tour.

Featuring two starting flights, the $2,200 ANZPT Sydney Main Event should attract over 400 runners with the possibility of 500 turning out. Last year’s event attracted 461 players who created prize pool of $922,000. The lion’s share of this huge sum of money found its way into the bankroll of Gordon Huntly, who picked up $148,900 for his victory.

The Sydney leg of the ANZPT has always been one of the most popular stops on the tour, which is now in its fifth season. Take a look at the past attendance figures in the table below.
