Sapphire Series Poker Challenge 2012 In Full Swing
Posted at 11:00 2012-07-17 by Matthew Pitt
The Burswood Casino in Perth is the venue for the Sapphire Series Poker Challenge 2012 and it looks set to be one of the best festivals run on Australian soil this year.
The highlight of this fantastic series has to be the $1,100 No Limit Hold'em Main Event that is being played to a Repechage format. This popular format allows players to re-enter the tournament if they are unfortunate enough to bust out during their chosen day's play. Not only does this help to boost the prize pools but it also gives players an extra shot at glory.
The Main Event's first starting flight kicks off at 12:30 on Thursday 19 July with Flight 2 taking place on the following day. The second and final day is completed on Saturday 21 July.

The Main Event buy-in, although certainly reasonable, may be out of the constraints of your bankroll but fear not because the casino will be hosting a whole load of satellite events that award seats to the Main Event. These are running on numerous days so check with the excellent customer service team of the Burswood to confirm they are running on your day of choice.
