Founding Poker First


Poker First was originally founded in Melbourne Australia due to our previous success in hosting poker events in Spain and the UK. Since Australia's success on the World Stage of Poker with Joe Hachem winning the WSOP Main Event in 2005, the game of Poker has become increasingly popular in this great country.

As we are constantly expanding, we are now hosting events across New Zealand.  

More local players today try to make it onto the World Stage and Poker First has the knowledge and the background to sponsor the right talents. We give every player the chance through our qualifying tournaments to play with the big boys for the big bucks.


Why Poker First ?

Simply because we strive to be the best and we strictly go by the standards and the rules of the large poker organisations, such as the EPT (European Poker Tour) and the WSOP (World Series of Poker). Every event we host is organized to perfection and has the flair that players welcome whilst competing for great cash prizes.


Poker First not only organizes professionally run poker events, but we also run themed and promotional events for corporate parties. Besides Texas Holdem Poker there is also Omaha which is becoming increasingly popular.


We welcome every new player to our organisation and special talents are rewarded. We hope everyone enjoys the tournaments we host and feel free to send us an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  for any comments or suggestions.
