Poker Around the World

 

WSOP Heading to Australia

Crown Melbourne will be the host of the first ever World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific in April 2013. The World Series of Poker announced Monday that they were entering into a multi-year agreement with the Crown Casino to bring a tournament series to Australia in 2013.

The event, called the WSOP Asia-Pacific (or WSOP APAC), will run from April 4th to April 15th next year and will feature five WSOP bracelet events. The Crown Melbourne, which has been the site of the Aussie Millions since 1998, will play host to the first WSOP events in the history of the country.

Australia has always been a poker hotspot, even before the Poker Boom, and since Joe Hachem’s 2005 WSOP victory poker players have flocked to tournaments like the Aussie Millions in record numbers. In addition to Australia, poker is taking hold in Asia like never before, with some of the biggest high-stakes action in the world taking place in Macau. The success of poker tours like the APPT and the ANZPT, likely factored into the WSOP’s decision to expand to the bustling region

“Our goal is to establish the worldwide grand slam of poker and use our platform to elevate the game through a series of major championships,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. “With WSOP Las Vegas growing annually and WSOP Europe poised for long-term success after five years, the time is right to turn our attention to the dynamic poker scene in Asia and Australia. Given Crown’s success with the ‘Aussie Millions Poker Championship’, we couldn’t ask for a better partner than Crown to establish the Asia-Pacific’s definitive poker festival.

“This exciting partnership brings together two industry leaders, and two strong brands, to create a premier poker event in this region,” said Hawkins. “Our agreement firmly aligns with our objective of attracting the very best local and international players, all vying for a coveted WSOP bracelet. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved with the Aussie Millions and look forward to featuring WSOP Asia Pacific on our poker calendar in April 2013.”

WSOP APAC will be just the second series in history to award a WSOP bracelet outside of Las Vegas. This partnership hopes to find the same level of success that the WSOP found when the created WSOP Europe in 2007. Crown’s agreement includes an international television production of the event, one that is expected to be shown globally on ESPN.

“It’s thrilling to think the World Series of Poker is coming to Australian soil,” said Hachem. “I know first-hand what a life-changing moment winning the WSOP gold bracelet was and how it served as a catalyst for the growth of poker in Australia and Asia. It will be a dream come true to host a worldwide poker event such as this at Crown. I can’t wait.”

The official schedule for the WSOP APAC will be released later this year.
