So far, 2019 has been a great year for poker players but just when you think that there is nothing to top it, even more poker events are announced. There are a ton of exciting poker events in the pipeline for the remaining portion of the year. While these events are definitely worth keeping an out for, it is important to note that poker operators have already begun preparing for 2020.
On Monday, July 22, Crown Melbourne announced that next year’s Aussie Millions Poker Championship will run from January 4 to January 24. The poker event which essentially turns the Crown into a mecca for poker gamers during the peak season of the Australian Summer has been hosted by the venue for over two decades. Players have always been treated to 21 consecutive days of poker with fun and exciting daily satellites, 23 Championship Events as well as cash games all of which run round the clock.
“January 2020 allows us the opportunity to continue to stamp ourselves as an elite Poker destination for players right across the Globe – and we are more than ready to accept that challenge and remain committed to providing the best experience possible,” Crown Melbourne’s Tournament Director Joel Williams said.
For a very long time, the Aussie Millions Poker Championship has been considered to be the marquee event on the Asia-Pacific poker calendar. In addition to that, it also one of the major stops on the international poker circuit with attendees including some of the top poker players in the world.
What Is New?
In a bid to ensure that they maintain the venue’s stellar reputation, the tournament team at the Crown Melbourne have promised to treat participants and attendees to a “fresh new look” in 2020. These will be seen right from the aforementioned daily satellites as well as the 24/7 cash games. There will also be some very interesting innovations with one of the most notable ones being the Aussie Millions Triple Satellite.
The Aussie Millions Triple Satellite will essentially offer the participating poker players a share in a total of three tournaments for the price of one – the uniquely tailored offering will cost the players just AU$550 or $380 to enter and those that will be lucky enough to make it will be granted access to the following three Aussie Millions championships:
- 2020 Aussie Millions Opening Event (valued at AU$1,150/$780)
- 2020 Aussie Millions No-Limit Hold’em 6-Max Event (valued at AU$1,150/$780)
- 2020 Aussie Millions Main Event (valued at AU$10,600/$6.980)
The 2019 Aussie Millions smashed a number of records and given the amount of effort being put into the preparation for the 2020 event, it will not be all that surprising when it also breaks more records.
