The Star has officially announced the 2015 Star Poker Summer Series. The tournament schedule will see the typical eight events held again, ranging in buy-ins from $330 to $5000. The tournament will begin on Tuesday, November 24 with the ever-popular $330 No-limit hold’em Opening Event and culminate on Monday, December 7 with the final table of the $2000 Main Event.
General Manager of Table Games Operations at The Star, Hugh Fraser, is looking forward to kicking off the summer season, building on the excitement of recent tournaments.
“Now in its 5th year, The Star’s Summer Poker Series is a highlight event of the gaming calendar, proving ever more popular year-on-year, with guests travelling from across Australia, and overseas, to take part in the two-week long tournament.
“Since The Star first offered poker more than a decade ago, we’ve watched as the popularity of the game has soared. To accommodate this growing demand, we developed a world-class purpose-built Poker Room and now offer poker at The Star 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“I look forward to welcoming attendees for The Star’s Summer Poker Series when it kicks off on 24 November,” concluded Mr Fraser.
The most recent Star Poker major tournament series was the Sydney Championships held in August where Ben Jee was crowned champion of the $3000 Main Event. The Summer Series main event buy-in is slightly less at $2000, a moderate price point where numbers are hoped to approach 350, generating a prize pool of over $600,000 and a winner’s prize of around $150,000.
The winner of the 2015 Summer Series Main Event will join recent champions Timo Pfutzenreuter (2014), Tristan Bain (2013), and Joel Feldman (2012) to make Star Poker history.
