The tragic loss of Team WAPL member and absolute gentleman, Bob Streatfeild
We were shocked to hear just recently about the untimely passing of our great friend and Team WAPL member, Bob Streatfeild.
Bob was a stalwart regular at our Woodbridge events, where he was highly regarded by all players and staff.
We were lucky enough to have had Bob join us on one of our Team WAPL trips up to Macau, where he not only had a great time and partied hard with us all, he final tabled the main event, making dozens of great friends along the way!
We were filled with great sadness to hear from a fellow member of Bob's bike accident in 2016, and will miss his smiling face, fun sense of humour, and great poker plays. :(
On behalf of us and all our staff who had the absolute pleasure of knowing and hosting Bob at the many WAPL events he played in, and from those players who were great friends with him, RIP mate.
WAPL Re-makes WA Poker History
This table is the whole package. Complete card identification, camera mounted, realtime card video output card display, including percentage chances to win and outs, high definition recording and live (or delayed) stream ready, it's the real deal, and it's about to launch!
Also, just quietly, if you happened to read all the way to the end of this news, the table is having a soft trial launch today, Tuesday 4th April, at Joondalup Sports Association. Though it might be too late for you to get in on the action on the table itself, if you're interested, get in touch with Jason (email@example.com) for more info on playing at the launch party, or come down from 6pm-midnight to check out the table in action!

Eddie @ the Aussie Millions - Main event
We were keenly following WAPL member Eddie Fowler's progress in the Aussie Millions this month, and although he unfortunately didn't have a good run in the Main Event, he had a great run in the other events he played!
Eddie's main event Day 1 started slowly, but hurt as Eddie took a couple of nasty beats with superior hands such as AK vs K5, and AQ vs 53.
He saw a nice pot come in with a short stacked double up from the small blind with pocket 6's, hitting a set.
Things were looking like they were turning around when he looked down at pocket Kings vs a raise under the gun. After a nice re-raise, the original raiser shoves, showing AK vs Eddie's KK. The much needed double up failed him as the board ran out 5,6,7,8,9 for a split pot straight, leaving him with 7,500 in chips at 200/400/50 Ante. Devastating.
He went card dead after the Kings, dwindling down to a point where he made a move with A4, running into Jacks, which held, ending Eddie's Main Event run late on Day 1.
After his unfortunate run of cards from the Main Event, Eddie decided to hop into a Main Event satellite. Only after starting the event did he find out that he wasn't able to re-enter the Main Event the next day, but, determined to improve on his performance in the Main Event, he surged onward, dominating the tournament and getting the heads up with a commanding lead.
With the number of entries, they had 1 Main Event seat ($10,000AUD) going to the winner, with 2nd place taking almost as much in cash, so Eddie was more than happy to relinquish his chip lead and take the big cash payout!
A Bit on the Side|
Eddie's final event of his Aussie Millions experience saw him cash again in the $1,150 Tournament of Champions, against 202 other players!
After a great 12 hours of poker, he ended the day in the top 18, and with a good chance to run deep into the cash.
The next day saw Eddie run his 58,000 stack into AJ with his pocket 10s, and was looking good right to the river where an Ace dropped, ending his great run in 15th place, with another cash payout!
Thanks for doing WAPL proud over there Eddie!
