The Star Sydney will play host to the annual Summer Poker Series from 24 November to 7 December 2015, with eight events taking place across the 14 day series. A guaranteed $400,000 minimum prize pool is on offer to the local, national and international players attending.
For the 2014 Summer Series more than 345 entrants tested their skills with German professional player, Timo Pfutzenreuter taking home the series title and collecting more than $157,000 in prize money. This year’s Summer Poker Series is set to be even bigger as it is the last gaming tournament of 2015.
General Manager of Table Games Operations at The Star, Hugh Fraser looks forward to kicking off the summer season, building on the excitement of recent tournaments, as the demand for poker continues to grow.
“Now in its 5th year, The Star’s Summer Poker Series is a highlight event of the gaming calendar, proving ever more popular year-on-year, with guests travelling from across Australia, and overseas, to take part in the two-week long tournament.
“Our recent Sydney Championships held in August 2015 garnered significant interest, with Benjamin Jee making Star Poker history by winning the Main Event and taking home over $200,000 after an intense week of play.
“Since The Star first offered poker more than a decade ago, we’ve watched as the popularity of the game has soared. To accommodate this growing demand, we developed a world-class purpose-built Poker Room and now offer poker at The Star 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“I look forward to welcoming attendees for The Star’s Summer Poker Series when it kicks off on 24 November,” concluded Mr Fraser.
