It's Time For The Main Event

ANZPT Grand Final winner Sam Razavi

After two weeks of poker action in the Crown poker room it’s time for the Main Event in downtown Melbourne during season five of the Australia New Zealand Poker Tour! Many big events were already played with the $10,000 State of Origin as one of the main features this week. This event was ultimately won by Grant Levy and his New South Wales teammates. They split up the $35,000 first place prize, on top of the individual bonus for winning the first of two shoot out tables.

Many of the top pros who competed in the State of Origin championship are also expected to play the ANZPT Main Event. Jackie Glazier, who played on the Victoria team, will be among many of the Day 1A players. This $2,200+$300 Main Event will have two starting days, a second day of play on Sunday before ultimately the final table on Monday.

Last August the ANZPT Grand Final was also played here in Melbourne, and British pro Sam Razavi claimed the A$326,125 first place prize. Razavi will be back this weekend to make another run, as will one of the local favorites in Tom Grigg who placed third las August. We also expect to see the Hachem brothers, Kristian Lunardi, Liam O'Rourke and many other national and international top players.

Make sure to follow for all your live updates! Play starts at 12:10PM AEDST.
