APT Announces prize pool that now includes two $1,000 seats (that’s right, count ’em, TWO SEATS!) to the Arizona State Poker Championship to be held at Talking Stick Resort
This year’s State Championship Tournament yielded a $1,000,000 prize pool with nearly 1,000 entrants! The winner took home over $233,000 in cash, plus a Championship bracelet. APT, Phoenix’s premier poker tour offering over 25 FREE poker tournaments a week, will now offer two seats to the State Championship in two different tournaments. Thanks to some amazing sponsors, namely Leon Huff and Certified Technical Services, Harley’s Italian Bistro, and Trisha Gulley with Insurance Pros of Arizona, here’s what we can now offer.
The first seat will be offered as First Place prize in APT’s Yearly Invite Tournament to be held in late January. In order to make the invite list, players will have to be in the top 125 of point earners from January 1, 2012- December 31, 2012. This is a no-nonsense, No Limit Texas Hold ’em event that will feature the best of the best from all APT venues. APT offers an annual tournament like this with a guaranteed prize pool of $1500 or more. Now, with this incredible first place prize, it’s more important than ever to get out and earn those points!
The second seat will be offered for First Place at the APT Anniversary Poker Party in early August. This event was a tremendous success previously, and we’re excited to have improved the prize pool enough to offer this $1,000 seat for first place. Additionally, the Royal Flush Bonus Game will occur at this event, and the Top 20 finishers will get a chance to play for their $50,000 Dream Car! This will be an incredible event that will likely blow the doors off of whatever venue we book. Only the top 50% of point earners will be invited to play in this event.
We LOVE what we do, and what we do is create fun events for you! It’s exciting for us to continue to grow into a poker family that you CHOOSE to play in because of the relationships you build, the environment we help create, and the prizes we can offer thanks to our sponsors and venue support. Thank you for supporting our venues, our sponsors, and us!
