Qualify for APCOOP through the Aus/NZ Poker League at PokerStars

Posted at 14:02 2010-11-03

PokerStars’ new regional based online poker series, the Asia Pacific Championship of Online Poker, will run later this month and with the PokerStars satellite machine cranking into full gear there is no need to put the whole bankroll on the line.

Those already enjoying the PokerStars Australia/New Zealand Poker League will have more reason to pony up and get in the game with PokerStars running an exclusive APCOOP leaderboard. If you haven’t played in the ANZPL before – now is the time to get involved.

If you are not familiar with the ANZPL, it is an exclusive PokerStars online tournament series for Australian and New Zealand players. It runs over three divisions – with the top tier having a $5 buyin per tournament, and the two lower divisions being freeroll competitions. PokerStars has a points leaderboard for the series that regularly pays out value added prizes including cash and tickets to some of PokerStars’ marquee live and online poker events.

Between November 1 – 11 there will be a special APCOOP leaderboard which will run in addition to all of the standard prizes, across both the ANZPL division one and two tournaments. Finish in the top 200 from either division and you will qualify for an APCOOP mega satellite where over 100 APCOOP seats will be given away! The mega satellite will be held on Saturday Nov 13, 2010 at 6:00pm AEDST (02:00 ET in the PokerStars lobby).

The APCOOP will run from the November 21-28, featuring 11 events with a combined guaranteed prize pool of US$100,000. The slate features a $215 Main Event with $50,000 Guaranteed and a supporting cast of lead up events that include Omaha, Mixed Game, and Hold’em events. Because it is a regionalised series, all events run at the gainfully employed friendly time of around 8.30pm AEDST. The APCOOP is an excellent chance for the office workers to have a crack at the full schedule of an online poker series – certainly a rare treat for them.

As well as the ANZPL, huge tourney action and various live event satellites, PokerStars have been running monthly freeroll tournament exclusively for PokerNetwork referred accounts. These freerolls come with $15,000 in value and give away tickets to all the big events on PokerStars.

With the chance at some big guarantees and the regular opportunity to qualify for events on the Asia-Pacific circuit PokerNetworkers would be mad if they did not already have an account at PokerStars.
