STAR POKER: ANZPT Sydney kicks-off tonight

The Star in Sydney, host venue for the first ANZPT tournament for 2012

Having barely recovered from our last trip to Sydney for the Star Poker Summer Series, the PMA team is about to pack up and do it all over again for The Star’s first major tournament series of 2012.

ANZPT Sydney kicks-off tonight (Wednesday) at 6.15pm with the first flight of the $330 buy-in Opening Event, which features a start stack of 10,000 and 40-minute levels.

Due to the popularity of the evening sessions for the Opening Event during the Summer Series, the first two flights of the ANZPT Sydney Opening Event will start at 6.15pm, with the third on Friday kicking-off at 12.30pm. Players eliminated from either of the first two flights have the option of re-entering a later day one flight under this event’s repechage format.

With thanks to the team at Star Poker, we can’t wait for event two which is the first $1100 PokerMedia Australia No Limit Hold’em Special. Players will start with 15,000 in chips and with levels of 40 minutes, we’re expecting to see the cream rise to the top. Ben and Stephen be reporting live from The Star from 12.30pm on Sunday – providing they survive Saturday night’s festivities at Rock Lily.

Other highlights of the ANZPT schedule include a $440 NLHE Semi-Shootout, $550 NLHE Six-Handed event, $440 NLHE Teams Event, $220 NLHE Turbo along with a $440 Pot Limit Omaha tournament. Of course, that all leads up to the $2200 ANZPT Main Event and $5000 NLHE Challenge.
