The Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) Melbourne has gotten underway at the Crown Casino. The event began at the start of the week with a number of satellites and accumulator events, and is set to culminate in the much anticipated Main Event.
The $3,000 Main Event will go for four days – including two starting flights – with the first day of the tourney set to take place this Friday. It is definitely not the only major event that will go down over the series, as a host of other tournaments will be held throughout the next week and a half.
A $350 Seven Game mixed event (H.O.R.S.E, No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha) is set to take place on Monday, while a $550 Pot Limit Omaha event is set to take place on Wednesday. A No Limit Hold’em Six Handed event is due to take place on Thursday, on the same day the Main Event will also get underway.
A Deepstack No Limit Hold’em event is also set to take place during the APPT Melbourne, as well as a variety of other Hold’Em events, in what looks set to be a diverse series in the Australian city.
Last year’s APPT Melbourne Main Event was won by British poker pro Sam Razavi, who won $326,125 for his stellar play in that event. It is currently unclear whether Razavi will come back to defend his title, but the Main Event is still set to be a highly competitive one regardless of whether or not he returns.
