4/01/2016 - Welcome to 2016! Great poker resumes Tuesday 5th! -
We'd like to wish you all the very best for 2016! Now we're through the holiday period, poker is back!
Starting at the Beaumaris on Tuesday 5th Jan, and the Woodvale on Thursday 7th Jan, Season 30 continues where we left off before Christmas.
It's hard to believe that we are up to Season 30 now, and that the Western Australian Poker League started nearly 10 years ago!
For those who've stuck with us since the beginning (and yes there's quite a few who are still regular players!), you've seen lots of changes along the way, but one thing that will never change is our commitment to ensure you have a great time when you join one of our events.
We look forward to seeing you in 2016, and best of luck!
Haven't played with us yet, or have a friend who might be keen? New or returning members for the first 2 events of the year will receive their annual membership or renewal for free! Merry Christmas. ;)
14/12/2015 - Season 29 Grand Final write-up! -
Season 29 officially ended on Sunday at the Grand Final, and what a day it was!
We saw a Royal Flush, a Straight Flush, and numerous set over set hands throughout the event, adding more excitement to an already supercharged by the huge UFC result!
In the Pro League, we saw a great field of 39 players whittle down to a final 7, where it took 1.5 hours before another player fell! With top 4 in the money, tensions were tight, as was the play all the way to the final hand, where Luke Dick got it all in pre-flop with K7 vs Alex Connell's K10. Dominated and facing elimination, his luck turned as his 7 hit the flop! Suddenly well behind and looking at doubling up Luke into the chip lead, Alex managed to hit one of the remaining 3 10s in the deck to secure the lead, and with the river blanking, the win and the $1285 first place prize money!
Alex Connell, Season 29 Pro League Grand Champion!
The top 4 Pro, in the money! Alex Connell, Luke Dick (2nd - $803), Alex Connell (1st - $1285), Steve Burgess (3rd - $642), and Andy Dark (4th - 482)
Over in the Free League, we saw a much improved structure and great Top 5 bonus change make the event even better than previous seasons! With a great field of 25, our contingent of free league members battled it out fiercely! Reaching heads up was Lawrence Tufnell and Bruce Cohen, and we saw Lawrence triumph as the Season 29 Free League Grand Champion.
Lawrence Tufnell, Season 29 Free League Grand Champion!
Congratulations goes to Alex and Lawrence, the WAPL Season 29 Pro and Free League Grand Champions respectively!
