The event that saw Wollongong’s Branko Usljebrka come from the clouds with an $11 satellite to walk away with $265,000 in 2017 returns to The Star Sydney’s Poker Room for its second year.
Touted as one of the best value tournaments of the year, it continues to firm as one of the must-attend events on the Australian poker calendar.
With a $1,000,000 GTD prize pool, which includes a minimum $250,000 GTD first prize and 10 World Series of Poker Monster Stack packages, seats are expected to sell out quickly as players from all over Australia book their seats.
The Australian Poker League and 888Poker League, both operated by Full House Group have teamed up with The Star Sydney to bring together amateur, professionals and poker enthusiasts Australia wide for this celebration of poker. For the APL and 888PL players who’ve won their tickets at regular events over the past year, The APL Million cannot come soon enough!
Open to both APL and 888PL qualifiers and also to buy-ins, this year’s field is expected to contain a combination of aspirational APL and 888PL players looking to live their poker dream, and a number of seasoned poker pros.
Will history repeat in 2018? Will another APL hopeful like Branko Usljebrka emerge from obscurity to take out one of the most prestigious prizes in Australian poker? Time will tell.
The APL Million runs between March 3rd and 12th.
Satellite events are running through February for those still looking to win their way into the event. The public are also able to buy directly into the event but should do so quickly as seats are selling quickly.
With a massive player’s party, a number of side events on offer at The Star, and 10% off at Star City Casino for all participants, the APL Million promises to be a memorable poker event.
