2012 Melbourne Poker Championships

[ Posted March 9th, 2012 ] by admin

Melbourne Poker Championships 2012So, Aussie Millions is in the books, but the action doesn’t stop for the Crown Casino in Melbourne.

The 2012 Melbourne Poker Championship has 10 official tournaments on the schedule this year. From the $200 No Limit Holdem Megastack to the $1,100 No Limit Holdem Main Event. There are also $65 satellites available daily.

This year Melbourne Poker Championships will feature two major championship events with the $550 Joe Hachem Deepstack 9 kicking things off as the opening event. Already well established this Joe Hachem Deepstack Events feature a repechage format like the Melbourne Championship Main Event and offer fantastic value for the poker player. The $1,100 Main Event itself features a great structure that produces worthy champions. Last years winner Brendon Rubie proved it was no fluke when he backed up his win with victory in the Aussie Millions Opening Event. These combined events are sure to bring the best players in the Country to fight it out for the huge prize pools up for grabs.Returning to the schedule in 2012 are the ever popular events, the $200 MegaStack No Limit Holdem, a $340 7 Game Mixed Event H.O.R.S.E/NLHE/PLO and $550 Pot Limit Omaha (Double Chance Format), No Limit Holdem Bounties- ($500 per Bounty), No Limit Holdem- 6 Handed Events.

New to the schedule is a $400 Turbo terminator event, with $100 for every player eliminated the action is sure to be fast and loose. Also a first on any Australian Championship schedule is an “Ante Up!” event. In this format the one blind stays at the minimum while the antes are raised every level. With a $200 entry and the last event on the schedule this event is sure to attract plenty of interest. There is also a new twist on an old favourite with this years teams event open to teams of two OR three players. Team-mates will change after each orbit on their table with no team-mate allowed to play more than one consecutive orbit.

Although I am a Sydney-sider, it’s fairly clear to see that Crown and Melbourne is the home of poker in Australia. Each year this Tournament Series seems to get better and better. You can also see a guide to online casino’s through www.onlinecasino.com guide.
