ANZPT holds court at Queenstown

The World Series of Poker may have wrapped up but the live poker keeps coming with PokerStars. After the UKIPT event ended in Brighton at the weekend, the Australia New Zealand Poker Tour prepares to take center stage in Queenstown.

Anyone who attended this event last year will tell you this area of New Zealand is one of the best places to enjoy a poker tournament anywhere. Nestled in the Southern Alps in the country's South Island, you can take a jet-boat ride in the morning, dine atop Bob's Peak after riding the Skyline Gondola for lunch, cruise Lake Wakatipu in the afternoon and be back before the sun sets behind the nearby snow-capped mountains.

All this awaits this week's ANZPT players, who will all be hoping to repeat Danny Chevalier's neat trick of winning the event last year.
