Tristan Bain’s strike-rate in major poker tournaments is pretty respectable. His modest return of five tournament cashes includes victories in a WPPT Main Event on the Gold Coast last year for almost $85,000 and now features a cash for $281,685 after he took out the Star Poker Summer Series Main Event at The Star.
It’s fair to think that the 43 players remaining in the battle for the first Star Poker Summer Series Main Event title to be offered in conjunction with the National Poker League (NPL) and Asian Poker Tour (APT) had a solid night’s sleep.
The first edition of the Star Poker Summer Series Main Event run in conjunction with the National Poker League (NPL) and Asian Poker Tour (APT) has proved popular – indeed, almost too popular. The field topped out at a massive 648 players, creating a prizepool of $1.17 million, after 379 players took their seats for flight two of the opening day at The Star yesterday (Friday).
The Australian poker record book is scheduled for an update with an unprecedented number of players already assured for the first Star Poker Summer Series Main Event featuring the support of the Asian Poker Tour and National Poker League. A huge line-up of 273 players packed into the southern end of The Star with all eyes on a slice of the prizepool that is expected to smash through the $1 million mark.
With the historic Asian Poker Tour Main Event about to kick-off at Sydney’s Star Casino as part of the Star Poker Summer Series, the preliminary schedule is almost complete.
