Bespoke Adelaide cocktail bar and poker lounge Stacked Social has announced a guaranteed $100,000 first prize for the winner of its upcoming Stacked Poker Championship – a new record for a poker tournament in South Australia.
The 2021 Stacked Poker Championship will take place over nine days from 16 to 24 May, comprising four $550 buy-in side events and a $2,200 buy-in main event. The main event itself will include two starting flights on Friday 21 and Saturday 22 May with the final table scheduled for Monday 24 May. Total prize money to be awarded across the five-event schedule is estimated to top $300,000.
“We are ready to mark ourselves on the map as an elite poker destination and remain committed to providing the best experience possible,” said Stacked Social Managing Director, Andrew Michael.
Located in the heart of North Adelaide, Stacked Social is described as an elegantly designed poker-themed cognac and cocktail lounge offering a vintage Hollywood feel with a touch of Vegas charm. It provides a mix of state of the art poker tables, diner styled booths and luxurious lounges and promises to treat players with hospitality unlike any other poker series around Australia via gourmet food selections, sophisticated cocktails, a boutique list of wine, beer and spirits and live reporting in a “one-of-a-kind poker lounge.”
“The experience at Stacked Social is unique in Australia and is truly a world-class setup, taking the sport into a whole new dimension,” said Australian Poker Hall of Famer and Stacked Poker Championship event ambassador Billy “The Croc” Argyros.
