About the Australian Poker Schedule

Launched in early 2022, the Australian Poker Schedules was created by Australian recreational poker player Craig Abernethy as live poker started to re-boom after the Covid-19 pandemic. The website aims to collate thousands of poker events from all over Australia in one place as well as news, unique data and tools that add value to players and operators all over our country.


With an explosion of poker tours, leagues and casino poker rooms across the country, we are now spoilt for choice of poker events in different formats, price points and structures. Unfortunately due to regulations in some states poker is very limited, however Australian Poker Schedule is trying to work with regulators to benefit players, operators and the Australian community.


APS attempts to create a simple and user friendly website to combine series schedules from individual poker websites and social media pages complete with custom search filters, a rating system, a series timeline for planning your year and best of all, it’s completely free!


More details about the rating system can be found under the FAQ page, but it in simple terms it compares tournament structures, rake, administration costs, and anything else that comes out of a single tournament prize pool.

Interview with Jon Stark 'Poker Shark'

One of the characters of South Australian poker is player, blogger, and author Jon Stark ‘Poker Shark’.


I bumped into Jon at the poker table (where else?) at The Star Casino, Gold Coast, when he was up here visiting family. Hearing of my $100K “Binky Bill” a week or so earlier, plus the new website, we had a friendly chin-wag in an interview for his Facebook blog.  31st March 2022


Jon has also published a book, ‘Poker World’ which was 60 years in the making!
326 pages. 46 chapters. 30 pages of full colour photos featuring 200+ local, interstate and international players.
