Star Poker Summer Series Kicks Off Next Week

Posted at 20:46 2013-11-17 by Tim Duckworth

The Star Poker Summer Series is back at The Star Casino in Sydney from November 27th – December 8th with eight events on the schedule to signify the beginning of the summer poker calendar in Australia.

Last year saw the inaugural running of the Star Poker Summer Series with the marquee $5,000 Main Event attracting 135 players to form a $634,500 prizepool. A who's who of Australian poker players took to the felt in the Main Event, and although Billy Argyros, Andrew Scarf, Ivan Zalac, Luke Edwards, Tam Truong and Daniel Neilson all featured in the money, it would be Melbournian Joel Feldman topping the field to capture the $176,344 first prize.

Following a successful running in 2012, the Star Poker Summer Series is back with a bigger schedule and a newly formed partnership with the National Poker League (NPL) for the Main Event. The Main Event will combine the Star Poker Summer Series Main Event and the NPL500 to create a huge Main Event that could easily see a $1,000,000 prizepool reached with direct buy-ins, satellite winners and NPL qualifiers all merging together.

Along with the $2,000 Main Event, the Star Poker Summer Series features seven other events to satisfy a whole range of poker players. The Opening Event has always been a big attraction at Star Poker with big fields and big first prizes, and this year will be no exception before a range of events follow with a 6-Handed, Turbo, Teams Event and Pot Limit Omaha take place before the Main Event begins. However if you bust the Main Event early there are two concluding events with a Bounty and a $5k Challenge completing the 2013 Star Poker Summer Series.
