December $30,000 NSW State Champs Qualifiers List

Caroline Salama takes out November State Champs!

Sunday’s NSW State Champs saw a fantastic turnout with 403 players chasing a $30,000 prizepool at Smithfield RSL. With 10 APL Million tickets being given away and the top 40 players receiving cash it was a hotly contested day of play.

In the end it was Caroline Salama from the Hills District who edged out Kon Sinemoglou and Colin McNeil from Sydney South and Central Coast respectively.

Caroline scored a $1,500 APL Million ticket and $3,500 cash, while Kon and Colin walked away with $1,000 and $750 to add to their APL Million qualification.

We wish all ten qualifiers into the APL Million all the best for next March when they will play for the GTD Minimum $250,000 first prize!
