Qualify For The 2012 Sydney Championship Main Event Today

Posted at 23:28 2012-07-13 by Matthew Pitt

The 2012 World Series of Poker is all but completed and Australian poker players from the region are looking for their next big tournament fix. Thankfully they do not have to look too far because the 2012 Sydney Championships are just around the corner.

The 2012 Sydney Championships are 10 first-class tournaments held between August 1-12 at the Star City Casino, with the crowning jewel being the $1,650 buy-in Main Event that starts on August 9. The Main Event sees players start with a generous stack of 20,000 tournament chips and play to a 60-minute clock.

Last year's Main Event attracted 315 runners and they were outlasted by Errolyn Strang who defeated John Donohue heads-up for the title and a bankroll-boosting $119,542. Each of the other side events were also well attended and we have absolutely no reason to believe this year will not be as well, if not better, attended.

If the $1,650 buy-in is too much for your own bankroll to afford then you should head down to the Star City Casino for their $300 buy-in 2012 Sydney Championships Main Event Mega Satellite. These tournaments run every other night and offer you a cheaper way into what should be an amazing Main Event.

There will also be a $5,000 No Limit Hold'em Challenge event right at the end of the festival that is sure to attracted some of the region's biggest names and familiar faces; again you can satellite into this high roller event.
