The World Poker Tour will have its first ever Main Tour event in Australia this October.
It will be not only the first WPT Main Tour event ever held in the country, but also the second in Asia-Pacific after the recent announcement of the WPT Cambodia event being held at NagaWorld this July.
The inaugural WPT Australia Main Tour event will be an AU$5,400 buy-in tournament starting on 2 October 2020, part of the second annual WPT Australia festival kicking off on 24 September.
“The World Poker Tour’s relationship with The Star Gold Coast continues to blossom and these three festivals will only add more reasons for our loyal players to visit this poker hotbed,” Angelica Hael, VP of Global Tour Management for the WPT, said in a statement.
“It brings me great joy to see poker continue to thrive in my native country and bring the WPT Champions Cup to Australia in Season XIX,” she added.
