The first season of PokerStars Australia New Zealand Poker Tour was very popular and poker players have been anticipating season two. Players can now rejoice as PokerStars has released the schedule for season two of the ANZPT.

The poker tour will begin in Australia at the SKYCITY Adelaide Casino and the main event will take place on February 9th to the 14th. Players will be able to compete in Queensland again as well but this time the event will be held at the Conrad Jupiters Casino on the Gold Coast only. Sydney and Melbourne will be back on the schedule as well and Western Australia will be hosting their first ANZPT event in March at the Burswood Entertainment Complex in Purth.

SKYCITY Adelaide Poker Manager David Galpin commented: “We are looking forward to the return of the ANZPT in Adelaide after the wonderful success of the first year and we are excited to see the event grow and flourish in Adelaide.”

Players will also be able to compete for the PokerStars ANZPT Player of the Year award again this year. The top three players on the Overall Points Leader board will earn sponsorship packages which will include seats to the Aussie Millions and the APPT.

ANZPT Commissioner Danny McDonagh commented: “The ANZPT provides Australian and New Zealand players with a professionally executed tour in their own backyard. It provides the opportunity for poker players to prove their skills consistently over time enjoy great experiences across Australia and New Zealand and gain a big prize—a valuable sponsorship with PokerStars.”
