PokerNews Cup Turns up the Heat!

Share this
The PokerNews Cup, a worldwide televised tournament, is cranking up the action right now at the Crown Casino in Melbourne Australia from October 21st to October 29th. The PokerNews Cup proves to be a new leader in world wide poker tournaments and action. Players have been able to qualify for this event through a variety of freerolls provided by PokerWorks, in an exclusive partnership with PokerNews, over the last several months.

Steve Charles took down Event #1, proving the old ‘chip and a chair' theory really does work. Early on, he had less than one big blind left after battling it out with Tim Simon but he came back to take charge of the whole event and beat out a 554 playing field to win AUD$16,615 and be crowned champion of the $175 NLH.

PokerWorks own favorite, Tony G. , will be hosting two $50,000 buy-in sit-n-gos. Don't be shy, the buy-in is $50,000+$200, and if you can't over come Tony's game, you can try ‘out talking' him. Good luck on both counts.

PokerNews is pleased to announce that the National Poker League (NPL) will also film the final table of the $1,100 H.O.R.S.E. event that starts tomorrow, October 25th, more TV time for more players.

Event #2, $240 PLO with $100 rebuys found Joe Hachem, Mel Judah, Billy the Croc, Lee Nelson, plus known locals Emad Tahtouh and Van Marcus (3rd place in the $1,500 WSOP PLO event), preparing for battle in the early levels. Tino Lechich over came all the opposition to take home 1st place and AUD$22,265.
