All-Time High for Queenstown Snowfest

Queenstown is normally one of the busiest stops in PokerStars’ New Zealand Poker Tour competition. 2012 turned out to be the most active NZPT Queenstown in history, with nearly 150 runners in the main event.

149 professional and amateur poker players turned up to compete in the event. This year’s number of participants is a positive sign of the increasing popularity of this stop on the New Zealand Poker Tour. Queenstown is becoming one of the best destinations for poker in New Zealand, and this year’s NZPT is proof of that fact.

A generous prize pool is being offered at NZPT Queenstown this year, awarding over $400 000 to the top 15 players. The winner of the tournament will win an impressive cash prize worth $110 000. Second place will earn $70 000 and third place will earn $41 000.

Day 1C has just begun and 58 players are left in the competition. Some big names are still in the game, including Rohit Bhasin, Leo Boxell and Matty Yates. As such, the rest of the tournament is going to be exciting, so stay tuned for updates.
