The inaugural WPT Australia was such a massive success that it’s returning twice in 2020. Star Gold Coast is the chosen casino for WPT DeepStacks Gold Coast and WPT Australia this year.
WPT DeepStacks Gold Coast runs from April 30th through May 4th and features 10 events. Australia’s finest poker players, including Robert Campbell, will likely compete in the WPT DeepStacks Gold Coast Main Event. This $1,500 buy-in tournament has a fantastic structure, allowing for the cream to rise to the top.
The WPT DeepStacks Main Event features three starting flights, each with a single re-entry permitted. Similar events held around the world attract players in droves and this should be no different.
$1,500 is a lot of money for some players to pay, so there are satellite tournaments scheduled. These give you the chance to win a $1,500 seat from only $175.

WPT DeepStacks Serves as Warm Up to WPT Australia
The WPT DeepStacks festival serves as the perfect warm-up for the second-ever WPT Australia.
WPT Australia takes place from October 2nd and is, again, held at The Star Gold Coast. Its $5,400 buy-in Main Event is the show-piece tournament on the schedule.
Hari Varma is one player to look out for when WPT Australia returns. Varma topped a field of 658-entries last year to scoop the $274,247 top prize. He’s since cashed at the WSOPC Sydney and 2020 Aussie Millions festivals.
The Star Gold Coast Delighted With WPT Partnership
“The Star Gold Coast and the nation of Australia warmly welcomes back the WPT for WPTDeepStacks Gold Coast and the rapidly approaching WPT Australia festival,” said Jess Mellor, COO, The Star Gold Coast. “Last year’s event showed the poker world that The Star Gold Coast is a must-attend poker destination and we look forward to showcasing our property to more players from around the globe.”
Angelica Hael, VP of Global Tour Management for the World Poker Tour, added, “The World Poker Tour’s relationship with The Star Gold Coast continues to blossom and these three festivals will only add more reasons for our loyal players to visit this poker hotbed. It brings me great joy to see poker continue to thrive in my native country and bring the WPT Champions Cup to Australia in Season XIX.”
