VIC $25,000 State Champs


Sunday 24th November

Club Italia

Rego: 9am | Start: 11am

Congratulations to the new October VIC State Champion winner Bob Taiva from Tigers Clubhouse, Hoppers Crossing.

Bob has won the state champs before at 9:58pm and desperately wanted to win again with a similar timing, fortunately for him the cards worked out in his favour and he knocked out 4 players within minutes of each other but he struck a deal with second place at 9:59pm meaning his personal best is still standing!

Rabea entered the final table in 4th position with chips but survived the madness of Bobs slaughter and snuck his way into second place. Maybe the fear caught him as he made a deal to get an extra $500 cash to forfeit the right to play for first place, to be honest we can't blame him.

Going into the Final Bob was chip leader with 4.8 Million in chips.

No hand break down for this month as the game ended in a deal!

Bob had 95% of the chips
Rabea had 5% of the chips

Bob had 100% of the win
Rabea had 0% of the win

$9,500 for Bob Taiva

$5,500 for Rabea

Total Players: 505

Total Prize pool $29,400

Total APL Millions tickets won: 7

Rego from 9am, Start 11am
LATE REGO til 12noon

* Blinds Structure listed below



$50 Entry, T50,000 starting stack.

For every $2,000 in the prize pool, an APL Million package consisting of a APL Million seat and $500 CASH will be generated. The remainder of the prize pool will be awarded as cash if under $1,500 or an APL Million seat and cash if over $1,500 but less than $2,000.

REGO from 3:30pm 
LATE ENTRY until the end of the first break

$30 Terminator Event
REGO from 6pm 
LATE ENTRY until the end of the first break

$2 Per Player
Of course, this all has to be funded and as many other States, Victoria has a semi player-funded finals model.  All cash buy-in and freeroll rebuy events will be $2 more than previously. The $2 will go towards the prize pool and nothing else. For Free events, the player will be given an option to double their stack with their last (or only) passport for $2.  This money does not go into the prize pool, but comes to Full House Group to manage and distribute and pay out in prizes to players. This will not cover the entire prize pool for these events, so Full House Group will continue to contribute to prize pools in 2017 to make 888PL, APL and Pub Poker the best Poker Leagues in Victoria and Australia as a whole!

** Big Blind ante will pay equivalent to the small blind each hand
