The World Series of Poker has released the tournament schedule for the inaugural WSOP Asia-Pacific event that will be held at the Crown Casino in Melbourne from April 4th to 15th.
The 2013 World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific will feature five bracelet events as well as the Caesars Cup Invitational Event, High Rollers tournaments, satellites and the ever-popular cash games.
World Series of Poker Executive Director Ty Stewart was extremely excited to announce the schedule for the first World Series event that will be held in the Southern Hemisphere.
“Ever since Australian Joe Hachem won the WSOP Main Event in 2005, we dreamed of the day we could hear Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi Oi, Oi on native soil,” Stewart said.
“We can’t wait for the first WSOP Asia-Pacific to begin, and we hope with a solidified schedule, players from around the globe will plan their trip to Melbourne in April as we make WSOP history awarding the first bracelets in the Southern Hemisphere.”
Crown Casino is considered one of the best poker casinos in the world and Stewart believes it will help draw players from the United States and Europe to play the event on the other side of the world.
“Most of the top players take multiple trips to European tournaments these days,”he said.
“The travel time to Melbourne is essentially the same as venues in Europe, and everyone who visits Crown can’t wait to return.”
Crown Chief Executive Officer Greg Hawkins said he was thrilled Crown had the opportunity to partner with the World Series of Poker.
“Players from all over the globe will descend on Crown Melbourne in April, all vying for one of the five coveted bracelets on offer,” Stewart said.
“The ‘bracelet’ events will range from the AUD$1100 – AUD$10,000 which will ensure players are well catered for in terms of choice.
“The five WSOP APAC ‘bracelet’ winners will etch their names in the long and coveted history that is the World Series of Poker.”
