With a record field, for an event up to $3,000 buy in the 493 entrants meant AU$986,000 was up for grabs.
Four intense days and 28 one-hour levels later, the first ANZPT Sydney Main Event title came down to a showdown between a 49-year-old mother-of-six and Gold Coast mortgage broker Lisa Walsh, and 25-year-old Sydney student Paren “Puzz” Arzoomanian. After a great heads up battle, the final hand came when Lisa shoved her stack into the middle and was all in with Kh-9c which Paren called with his Ac-5d. On flopping 2 pair it was over and the 25yo NSW student took home the title of ANZPT Sydney champion and a massive AU$246,500 for his efforts.
Here is a list of the FT payouts:

Congratulations to those Kiwi’s that cashed and here’s to the Melbourne Champs and the next leg of the ANZPT.
