Turn up the heat: APL Ville 600 kickstarts massive summer tour

The Australian Poker League (APL) is now primed and ready for an epic summer of poker, kicking things off with its iconic North Queensland poker tomorrow.

The APL Ville 600 – the brainchild of much-loved FNQ poker mogul, Allan McLauchlan – has fast become one of the ultimate poker ‘play-cations’ since it was first held at The Ville-Resort Casino in Townsville back in 2017.

Featuring 23 events over the course of eight days, the APL Ville 600 schedule offers a wide variety of tournaments to suit every taste and budget, but spaced out in a way to allow all players to soak in the atmosphere and live out the full Ville experience.

“It’s hard not to get excited about the APL Ville 600,” said Major Events Director, Joel Williams. “We’ve had enormous Main Event satellite support across the country in the lead-up to the series, so we’re on track to exceed all expectations.”

“And besides … who wouldn’t want to play poker in paradise?”

Following soon after is the next APL Poker Tour stop at the Commercial Club in Albury, offering 21 events over four days. APL Murray Regional Manager Michelle Hinds has been hard at work putting together the finishing touches to this event and believes that it will help bring country poker to life.

“To say that I’m hyped up for the APLPT making its regional debut is an understatement,” said Hinds. “Since news broke that [the series] was coming to The Murray, player numbers at nightly events have increased and many of our semi-regular players have returned to get some practice in for the Big Show.”

“It seems that nobody wants to miss out on this golden opportunity!”

The APL Poker Tour then ends the 2022 calendar back at the historic Wrest Point Hobart in Tasmania before returning to its birthplace at Southport Sharks in Queensland in the New Year, followed by the Canterbury-Hurlstone RSL in Sydney.
