It’s the jewel in the Aussie Millions crown and this year a healthy cohort of players have anted up $10,000 to compete in the tournament series' most popular event.
The Aussie Millions Main Event kicked off yesterday with 154 players. The first of three starting days saw some familiar faces taking to the felt in search of an early route into Day 2; however, for the likes of Rupert Elder, Brian Townsend and defending champion Oliver Spiedel, that proved a rash decision.While Elder et al his the rail, a European quartet of Richard Ashby (63,000), Toby Lewis (37,000), Eoghan O’Dea (30,000) and Mark Teltscher (24,000) all made it through their opening session.The man they were all left trailing though was Australian amateur Brian Payne. With 299,000 chips he finished almost 100,000 chips ahead of Philip Willcocks who scooped a haul of 208,400.With Day 1A in the books it was a case of déjà vu on Day 1B as another wave of poker stars flooded the felt.Of those setting the early pace was the likes of Annette Obrestad, Philipp Gruissem and Jason Mercier.
