High-level tournament poker returns to boutique Adelaide poker room Stacked Social this month with the Adelaide Poker Festival to run from 25 May until 5 June.
This exciting new addition to the Australian poker calendar promises to be one of the most exciting series yet, with organizers adding a raft of new innovations both on and off the felt.
Kicking off with the $350 buy-in Mini Main Event, which features four Day 1 flights, highlights of the series include a unique Progressive KO tournament whereby bounties make up the entire prize-pool – a sure-fire way to induce plenty of action.
There is also a $4k “Croc’s Challenge” high roller event to be hosted by Billy “The Croc” Argyros, a $450 Monster Stack, a Flip ‘n’ Go event where players can flip their way into the money, and the always action-packed PLO5 event.
The $2,000 buy-in Main Event is scheduled to run over four days from Friday 2 until Monday 5 June. Can anyone beat local crusher Joe Sandaev to the title?
Stacked Social Managing Director Andrew Michael said there would also be plenty of new attractions added to the week’s festivities, with the goal of making the Adelaide Poker Festival an event not to be missed.
“We’ve combined our poker series with a number of additional offerings for players including a wine tour and a golf day, while the series will culminate in a player party,” Andrew said.
“The series also coincides with Adelaide hosting State of Origin on Wednesday 31 May, providing added incentive for players from NSW and Queensland to make it to the festive state.
“We encourage anyone who hasn’t experienced Stacked Social before to come down and enjoy an unparalleled poker experience with our warm and friendly hospitality.
“The Adelaide Poker Festival will be a celebration of the art of poker and the wide gamut of personalities that collectively make the sport such a world-wide phenomenon.”
