VIC State Champs Qualifiers List

Congratulations to the new September VIC State Champion winner Labib Warda from Anglers Tavern.

Labib also holds the last person standing title as he took stock in the side prize pool giving him a second APL Million ticket

Labib has made a consistent effort over the last few months, hitting final table four times in the last five months at APLs major events including the Grand Slam, Best of the Best and State Champs! Labib has become a master at figuring out his opponents and playing his position well!

Tyson Neu comes in at runner up position without disappointment as he has just recently started playing only four months ago. His friends taught him how to play and he has been a sponge soaking it all up and now out performing his friends! Tyson has tested his craft at Ferntree Gully Hotel which holds a few players of clout!

Going into the Final Table Tyson was the overall chip leader with Labib in second.

LAST HAND: Labib Pushes all in with KJ suited of Hearts from the small blind positon, with little hesitation Tyson makes the call with off suit A 9. Tyson finds himself at risk but ahead with the cards going into the turn

FLOP 5c Jd qc - Labib catches one of his 6 outs giving him a pair of Jacks

TURN 3h - Absolute brick

RIVER 5s - Labib snaps up the win with two Pair Jacks and Fives.

Stats: Labib 45.56% vs Tyson 54.02% pre Flop.

$10,000 for Labib Warda

$5,000 for Tyson Neu

Total Players: 541

Total Prize pool $30,235

Total APL Millions tickets won: 7

A big thank you to all the bad beats, lucky flops, bricky turns and TILTING rivers we had a great Sunday at Club Italia, who did a great job in hosting us all!

SUN 27th OCTOBER - Veneto Club

Rego from 9am, Start 11am
LATE REGO til 12noon

* Blinds Structure listed below



$50 Entry, T50,000 starting stack.

For every $2,000 in the prize pool, an APL Million package consisting of a APL Million seat and $500 CASH will be generated. The remainder of the prize pool will be awarded as cash if under $1,500 or an APL Million seat and cash if over $1,500 but less than $2,000.

REGO from 3:30pm 
LATE ENTRY until the end of the first break

$30 Terminator Event
REGO from 6pm 
LATE ENTRY until the end of the first break

$2 Per Player
Of course, this all has to be funded and as many other States, Victoria has a semi player-funded finals model.  All cash buy-in and freeroll rebuy events will be $2 more than previously. The $2 will go towards the prize pool and nothing else. For Free events, the player will be given an option to double their stack with their last (or only) passport for $2.  This money does not go into the prize pool, but comes to Full House Group to manage and distribute and pay out in prizes to players. This will not cover the entire prize pool for these events, so Full House Group will continue to contribute to prize pools in 2017 to make 888PL, APL and Pub Poker the best Poker Leagues in Victoria and Australia as a whole!

** Big Blind ante will pay equivalent to the small blind each hand
