These are no longer the first serious prize for Stephen Chidvik on Australian Poker Open 2020. This week he took second place in a similar tournament that brought him $ 1821. So literally in three days the British was granted for almost half a million dollars. Therefore, it is not surprising that according to Chidvik, the format of this series is even more than WSOP:
It was fun. I like this game format: one tournament every day during the week. You compete with the best players in the world to find out who is stronger. Very nice to have a chance to conquer the title Australian Poker Open. The world series of poker is too long. Can be depleted very quickly if you do not take a break. And this series is quite suitable for me.
