New Zealand’s biggest poker tournament is back and headlined by a Main Event with an estimated total prize pool of $200,000*!

One person will be crowned champion of one of New Zealand’s biggest poker tournaments. Could that person be you?

Join the action from as little as $90 with our satellites running from 26 October–16 November. If you’ve got what it takes, you could bluff and raise your way through to the Main Event.

This year we will be introducing an exciting addition to the Main Event. You can buy-in to the Main Event Day 1A for half the amount ($825) but you’ll start with a half stack (10,000 in chips) and be playing under the same structure. If you can win, you will make it through to Day 2.
