Aussie Millions $10,000 main event begins

Monday, 25 January 2010

Over 200 players stumped up the $10,500 AUD necessary to compete in the main event of the 2010 Aussie Millions tournament series – an event which has already broken records this year.

In total, 233 players signed up for the day with just 98 surviving the first flight. Day 1a also featured one of the toughest tables we’ve seen at a poker tournament, with Tom "durrrr" Dwan, Phil Ivey, Billy "The Croc" Argyros, and Leo Boxell all sharing the felt. Dwan was the dominant one, eliminating Phil Ivey and accruing his table’s chips rapidly before dropping down in the counts to finish the day with a below average stack.

The chip leader after Day 1a is Ronny Kaiser on over 117,000 shortly ahead of Sorel “imper1um” Mizzi on 112k. Hit Squaddie Karl Marenholz is holding his own in 6th place while Andrew Feldman, Barry Greenstein, David Steicke, James Akenhead, Barny Boatman and 2007 Aussie Millions champion Gus Hansen are all still in the hunt.

Day 1b is currently underway so join us tomorrow for updates on the second flight of players at the 2010 Aussie Millions.
