A total of 721 players paid the AU$10,000 buy-in for the Main Event of the 2011 Aussie Millions and after three opening flights 265 players are still in contention.
Day 1C chip leader Oliver Keefe stands at the head of the leader board but there are a host of big names looming threateningly behind. Heading the chasing pack are Erick Lindgren and Patrik Antonius with Phil Ivey, Chris Moorman, Carter Phillips, Erik Cajelais and Jeff Sarwer all in the upper echelons of the chip counts. Sam Trickett couldn't follow up his $100k Challenge success with a deep run in the Main Event though. Joining Bluff Europe's cover star on the rail were James Bord, Erik Seidel, John Juanda, Gus Hansen, Annette Obrestad, Andy Bloch and defending champion Tyron Krost.72 players will make the money with each of them guaranteed AU$15,000. The survivors will of course be hoping for a much more substantial pay day than AU$15,000. The winner will take home a cool AU$2m with the runner-up also earning a seven figure sum. Everyone that reaches the final table will take home at least AU$130,000.The action resumes at 12.30pm local time.
