Winter Poker Championship: Numerous modifications for the tournament

The edition 2013 of the Australian event Winter Poker Championship has been object of major changes with the introduction of new Side Events and the increase of the Main Event buy-in. The tournament will take place during the week-end of the « Queen's Birthday » celebration at Casino Canberra, a splendid casino resort of the Australian capital. As expected, the Winter Poker Championship will be held from next June 8 to 10 but changes were made to the program. Initially, the organizers proposed a Main Event with a buy-in at $ 1,100 but with the approach of the event, an upward revision of the buy-in has been made to ensure a significant prize pool without altering the number of participants.

Indeed, the entry fee has been increased at $ 2,200. The Main Event will take place over three days and players will receive 20,000 starting chips on rounds of 40 minutes. Last year, the Winter Poker Championship gathered 98 players for a $ 98,000 prize pool. This event was won by Danie Chamock who granted himself $ 26,950 in a final table composed of nine players. The other novelty of this Winter Poker Championship 2013 is the appearance of two Side Events which will guarantee a 100% poker week-end at Casino Canberra. On Saturday, June 8th, the tournament will host a $ 220 No Limit Holdem Turbo and the next day, a $ 330 No Limit Holdem Teams Event will take place. This latter will be different by its size which involves players' change every 30 minutes.
