APPT Sydney Satellites Commence at PokerStars

Posted at 20:58 2010-10-20

This week PokerStars has opened up a range of satellites options to APPT Sydney. With the bulk of qualifying out of the way for the upcoming APPT Cebu, attention has now turned to the Grand Final of season four of the PokerStars.net Asian Pacific Poker Tour.

The satellites have something for everyone with a weekly $530 satellite for a package that includes a Main Event seat, accommodation and expenses. Also there will be two $425 seat only freezeout qualifiers a week. But by far the most popular qualifiers for the APPT Sydney Main Event will be the 3x turbo rebuy tournaments. $27.50 3x turbo rebuy events will run every night of the week for an APPT Sydney package, while $22 3x turbo rebuys will be available for seat only qualifiers five nights per week.

The first qualifier is expected to kick off this Thursday (October 21) with a mad rush of qualifiers from here right through to the APPT Sydney Main Event at Star City in December. To get in on the satellite action you need to click ‘Events’, then ‘APPT’ from the PokerStars tournament lobby.

This year APPT Sydney Main Event will run from December 7 to 12 with a $6,300 buyin. There will also be 11 other events on the card and a multitude of live satellites and cash games being spread by Star City from November 28 through to December 12.

Another big prize pool is expected with 395 players turning out for the Main Event last year and 476 players the year before. Defending champion Aaron Benton will no doubt be part of the field, returning to the scene where he captured $594,000 in prize money in 2009, while Star City ambassador and former champion Grant ‘Grunter’ Levy will also be in the hunt for a second title.

Those not keen on online satellites can always try their luck in the live satellite program running at Star City Casino right up until the event with increased satellites during the lead-up program to the Main Event. There is also likely to be some satellites at the APPT Cebu event, as has been the case at previous APPT branded events.

The APPT Sydney is Australia’s second biggest poker tournament and the perfect way to end the Asian circuit for the year. You can join them by getting involved in the satellites and if you don’t already have a PokerStars account, PokerNetwork can help get you on your way with a 100% up to $600 bonus. Simply download PokerStars using the PokerStars Marketing Code POKERNETWORK and PokerStars Bonus Code STARS600 and you will receive the bonus, along with tickets to exclusive freerolls and promotions courtesy of PokerNetwork.
