ANZPT Auckland: Deal Done and Down to Four

And just like that three more players have been sent to the rail. There is just no way the final table can keep up the pace that was set during the first couple of levels of play. If it does, then we are going to have an ANZPT record on our hands. Just to reiterate, that's five eliminations in just...more

ANZPT Auckland: No Mulligans for Jamie as he Leads Final Nine

From 18 players to 15 was very slow. From 15 to 9, was very quick. It's just how these things work sometimes. Now, the final table of the ANZPT Auckland has been set and it is Jamie Mulligan who leads the way and is in the best shape to make a run at the NZ$107,640 title. The day started with 76 p...more

ANZPT Auckland: Those Little Quirks

Standing around two poker tables, watching and waiting for a big hand to happen. Orbit after orbit, not much happens. You can't help but notice some little character quirks. Not "tells" as such, as we are only humble bloggers, so we will leave the poker to the players. No, what I'm talking about is ...more

ANZPT Auckland: Two Table Tales

It feels like just moments ago that the bubble was bursting and the 24 remaining players were celebrating their accomplishment of making it into the money. It really feels like that because of how quick the action has been playing out as we have just lost 5 players and are now left with two tables ...more

ANZPT Auckland: There Goes the Bubble

There was ten minutes to go before the dinner break and there were 26 players remaining in the ANZPT Auckland Main Event. Then ANZPT Melbourne champ Paul "KingPaulie" Hockin was sent to rail and play went hand-for-hand. Some players looked eager to get on the break and re compose, others looked kee...more

ANZPT Auckland: Dinner and Bubble Both Lurking

The dinner break is just around the corner and just as we expected, the money bubble hasn't quite been reached yet, but it is certainly getting very close. At the moment there are three tables of nine remaining, so we are likely to be just a couple of places off the money heading into the break. Bu...more

ANZPT Auckland: Half of Day 2 Down

Just around four levels into the day and we have already lost more than half of the players. What started as 76 is now 37. Halve that again and we are well into the money. The second day of the ANZPT Auckland Main Event has certainly been travelling at a quick pace and it doesn't look it will be sl...more

ANZPT Auckland: The Land of Ladies

The 2012 ANZPT Auckland Main Event could end up being remembered as the event where the ladies dominated. That will certainly be the case if Angie Fizgerald and Monica Eastick keep up the momentum that has seen them be the first couple of players to move their stacks above 200,000 in chips. They ar...more

ANZPT Auckland: The Final Event of 2012

It won't be too long before the money bubble is upon us and so the poker action will heat up and will steal our full attention. So, while we have a chance, I thought we should take a look at the year 2012 on the Australia New Zealand Poker Tour. After all, ANZPT Auckland may be only the second even...more

AZNPT Auckland: It's Business Time

Poker can be fun sometimes. It's arguable that Day 1 of a poker tournament can be the most enjoyable of days. There's lots of chips, the blinds are small, the bad players are gifting chips and the money is too far away to truly worry about. Well, that's simply not the case on Day 2 of a tournament....more
