PokerStars Makes It Easier Than Ever To Get To The Sydney APPT Grand Final

Posted at 10:39 2009-11-17
The APPT Grand Final being held in Sydney between the 1st and the 6th of December is fast becoming the centre of the poker universe. Players who haven’t already organised their trip to the harbour city are desperately trying to work out how to get there. PokerStars are doing their best to help those players with a very special VIP Satellite. An entry of 50,000 FPPs will get you a seat into the satellite on November 21st where a phenomenal NINE APPT SYDNEY PACKAGES will be given away!
 
The Sydney APPT Grand Final, held at the beautifully revamped Star City Casino, is an AU$6,300 buy-in tournament and it is widely believed that the field will be well in excess of 500 players. This tournament is set to be the perfect finale to poker in Australia in 2009
 
Players who win satellites on PokerStars will not just win a seat into this prestigious event, but they will also receive some fantastic premium accommodation in beautiful Sydney and a very tidy $2,000 in spending money. That’s $9,500 in value to package winners!
 
The best way to win your way there is through the plethora of online satellites. They have already started and are going to ramp up into overdrive over the last few weeks before the event kicks off. There are a range of satellites on offer at prices to suit all players’ budgets and bankrolls. Jump onto the PokerStars tournament lobby, click on the ‘Events’ tab and then on ‘APPT’ to see all the wide range of options on offer.
 
If you are the type of player who would rather just buy in directly instead of trying to satellite, you can do this in advance through PokerStars. This is a fantastic feature of the APPT as it will guarantee you a seat in the event as there is a very real possibility this tournament will sell out. If you would like to register in advance simply email registrations@pokerstars.net to receive instructions on sending the payment via wire transfer.
 
Players will have the option to purchase a Main Event entry, or an accommodation package, depending on availability. The deadline for advance payment by wire transfer or bank draft is two weeks before the event.
 
Players can also register in person at Star City Casino in the weeks leading up to the Main Event, with registration accepted by cash or credit card.
 
PokerStars are offering more opportunities to satellite into the 2009 Sydney APPT Grand Final and more methods to buy in directly than ever before, so there’s no excuses to miss out on this event and a part in Australian poker history. I look forward to seeing you in Sydney!
