2018 Crown Poker Championship

12 Mar '18

Following on from the most successful Aussie Millions series in history, Crown Poker is excited to announce the newest tournament series on the calendar - the 2018 Crown Poker Championship running from April 18th to 30th.

The series kicks off with an Opening Event Accumulator commencing Wednesday April 18th at 6.10pm. At just $300 to enter and boasting a $100,000 Prize Pool Guarantee, it is sure to attract enormous fields across all four flights! This is the largest prizepool guarantee ever offered at Crown Poker outside of Aussie Millions - this event is guaranteed to get the CPC series off to a flying start!

Events 2 and 3 on the calendar feature No Limit Hold'em in two completely opposite formats - Crown Poker's own $175 "Hyper Turbo 10/10/10" on Saturday 21st and a $550 Deepstack on Sunday 22nd. The former encourages fast-paced action with a 10k start bank, 10 minute levels and 10 seconds to act - surely not a tournament for those lacking courage! Despite the fast pace, the dedicated structure contains numerous new smaller level increments to ensure that tournament play is still maximised! The latter offers both 30-minute levels and an enormous 25K start bank - truly a test for those with the stamina to outlast the field!

Fans of the mixed games have again been catered for with Event 4 $350 8-Game (2-7 Triple Draw, H.O.R.S.E, NLHE, PLO). This event is certain to attract a well-credentialed field as players attempt to master eight different poker disciplines simultaneously.

A $400 PLO Terminator on Monday 23rd April will see eliminations rewarded with $100 from the prizepool, while there's no time for deep thinking ANZAC Day eve with a $175 Turbo No Limit Holdem event (15-minute levels and a 20-second shot clock) ensuring speedy action!

ANZAC Day plays host to the High Rollers with a "$5K Shot Clock Challenge" two-day event taking centre stage. Expect a strong interstate contingent for this one as some of the country's poker elite take their shot at a prizepool expected to top $250,000. And if $5,000 is out of your poker budget, there's a $300 No Limit Shot Clock Teams event 610pm that night.

The action heats up as Event 9 features No Limit Hold'em in its hottest form - with a six player maximum. Priced at $550, only the toughest survive in the short-handed format of the game.

Flight 1 of the Crown Poker Championship Main Event begins Friday April 27. Again featuring a ‘repechage' format, the $1650 Main Event will allow players two opportunities to proceed to Day 2 to battle it out for an estimated 6-figure prize pool. With 12x 40 minute levels on Day 1 and 60 minute levels thereafter, value and extensive play time is again the absolute focus of this Main Event.
