The 2014 edition of the WSOP APAC features double the bracelet events than it offered in 2013, with 10 WSOP bracelets on the line right at Melbourne’sCrown Casino. “We are excited to return to Melbourne in 2014 for WSOP APAC and the beginning of a new era for our international championships,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart earlier this summer.
The 2014 WSOP APAC schedule kicks off on Today at 6:10pm with Event 1: $1,100 NLHE Accumulator. There are three Day 1 flights on offer in this event, with the first taking place on Thursday, and the next two kicking off on Friday. Day 1b begins at 12:10pm on Friday, while Day 1c takes place on Friday from 6:10pm.
The WSOP standard is bigger, better and different. Moving to a rotational approach, with one international event per year allows for better organization and more marketing in each region. We also want to do right by the players, and provide more value for their travel dollar. There is a glut of poker tournaments around the world, and our vision is to each year put on a single global showcase that can’t be missed.”
Some of the world’s top players will join the action and battle one card after the other to climb right to the highest spot of the WSOP Player of the Yearrace.
The unique ‘accumulator’ format of the event sees players having the ability to play all three flights, regardless of their result in any given flight. Players can then combine their stacks on Day 2 if they make it through multiple Day 1 flights.
Players begin the opening event of the 2014 WSOP APAC with 3,000 in chips, levels last 60 minutes each and the first blinds are 25/25. There will be eight levels played on each Day 1 flight, with late registration open for the first four levels. Each Day 1 will finish up with blinds at 200/400.
There were a massive 1,085 total entrants in the Accumulator event at the 2013 WSOP APAC and it wasBryan Piccioli who claimed the first gold bracelet on Aussie soil. By all accounts this year’s Accumulator will be just as large and should kick off the 2014 WSOP APAC schedule with a bang.
While the first WSOP APAC event of 2014 is still playing out, Event 2: $2,200 NLHE begins from 2:10pm on Saturday. This is a 3-day event and should draw a big crowd of local punters and international pros.
Once the action of Event 2 is well and truly underway, there will be Event 3: $1,650 Pot Limit Omaha (three-day event), Event 4: $1,650 NLHE Terminator (three-day event) and Event 5: $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha (three-day event), all of which run with a single Day 1 flight.
The sixth event on the 2014 WSOP APAC schedule is the interesting one – Event 6: $1,650 Dealer’s Choice 8-Game. No event like this has ever been played in Australia and while there are only eight games to choose from as opposed to double that recently featured in the equivalent event in Vegas, this is still going to be a lot of fun.
The next two bracelets awarded will be in Event 7: $2,200 NLHE Six-Max and Event 8: $5,000 8-Game,while the only other tournament outside of the big one will then be Event 10: $25,000 High Roller.
The $10,000 buy-in 2014 WSOP APAC Main event begins on Sunday, October 12th and features two Day 1 flights. The tournament runs as a five-day event, drawing to a conclusion on Saturday, October 18th. The previously mentiond high roller begins on Day 3 of the Main Event.
