APT Sydney supported by the NPL
THE NPL MILLION & The Star Summer Series Team up to bring you
The Star Summer Series supported by the NPL.


WITH AN ANTCIPATED PRIZEPOOL OF $1 MILLION to $1.5 MILLION!!

Over the last 3 years the NPL's major events have evolved. From the ground-breaking NPL500 at East Leagues Club to the 2011 NPL500 II at Parramatta Leagues Club, last year’s NPL500 III found it's home at Sydney's fabulous casino The Star, the NPL Million was announced in January and now we are proud to announce the NPL Million will be the main event of The Star Summer Series.

The Star's flagship tournament series here in Sydney, this year’s Summer Series will see The Star team up with the National Poker League (NPL) to bring you the $2000 buy-in main event.

This partnership means players can either win their tickets through the NPL, playing the Star satellites starting from October onwards or through direct by ins.

The NPL has already satellited in over 150 players with both parties confident the final field will break The Star's record field of 561 players that contested the inaugural APPT Sydney back in 2007.

A field of 556 will create a $1 million prize pool and the early talk is that we could even see a prize pool pushing $1.5 million!

The Star Summer Series supported by the NPL will kick-off in late November with the new main event scheduled for December 5th to 8th.

We look forward to seeing a record field assemble at The Star for what promises to be one of the most significant events in Australian poker history.
