With the ANZPT Melbourne festival done and dusted PokerStars have revealed the full schedule for Season 5 of the Australia New Zealand Poker Tour (ANZPT).
Next in line is the ANZPT Auckland festival that will take place at SKYCITY between Nov. 17-25. This will be the first time the ANZPT has stopped off in Auckland, though the PokerStars Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) has dropped anchor here previously. Expect a very large crowd for the NZD$2,200 Main Event.
Be prepared to be in the bad books of your loved ones because ANZPT Perth kicks off on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14! The festival will run until Feb .24 during which time 11 events will be played out including the $2,200 Main Event (Feb. 20-24) and the eagerly anticipated $4,000 High Roller that is sure to attract some of the biggest names on the Australian circuit.
Following on from Perth is ANZPT Sydney, which is still having its full schedule pieced together. The Main Event, again costing $2,200, will run between Mar. 21-24 but other than that and the fact the venue will be The Star Casino, details are yet to be finalised.
The same can be said for the inaugural ANZPT repechage that will be held on the Crown Casino, Melbourne. The $1,100 Main Event will take place between May 30 and Jun. 3 and will allow, for the first time, players to re-enter on Day 1b and / or Day 1c if they bust out during their starting flight. This format has been extremely popular around the globe and should see a huge prize pool created.
Capping off Season 5 is ANZPT Queenstown, which will run between July 29 and Aug. 4 at the SKYCITY Queenstown.This particular Main Event sees the buy-in increased slightly to NZD$2,700 +$300, which should see another huge prize pool on offer. The last time the ANZPT was in Queenstown it was David Allan who emerged victorious, helping himself to the $110,600 first place prize.
