The range of tournaments is diverse, offering varying levels of buy-ins, with the smallest being $10 and the largest being $2200. So, whether you’re a poker pro or looking for your lucky break, there is an event for you.
The Main Event of the ANZPT Melbourne stop is always an exciting event. It always draws in the most runners of any stop, seeing hundreds of players competing for a generous prize pool. Last year, the prize pool was worth $620 000, and the winner walked away with a $165 000 payday. This year, the event organizer anticipates that the player pool will top 2011’s, boosting the top prize.
The buy-in for the event is $2200, but there are other ways for players to earn entry. For example, the ANZPT Melbourne is hosting a number of live qualifier events and there are plenty of online satellites available.
