Brits fall short in Aussie Millions Event #4

Brits fall short in Aussie Millions Event #4

Wednesday, 19 January 2011

Heading into the final table of Event #4 of the Aussie Millions there was a fifty/fifty chance that a Brit would be taking the title as no fewer than half of the ten remaining players were from blighty.

Alas it wasn't to be this time though as overnight chip leader, Soren Blanner from Denmark, kept his advantage throughout a competitive final day to seal the AU$37,920 first prize. He had to beat a pom to seal the deal though, beating UK tournament regular Jack Powell heads up.

The pair were about even in chips at the start of two handed play but didn't take long to bang heads. The crucial hand saw all the vast majority of the chips go in with the young Englishman holding pocket sixes and the Dane AcJc. An ace appeared on the flop, followed by running clubs to give Blanner the nut flush and a massive chip advantage.

The end came soon after when a crippled Powell was forced all in with 4h2h. He must have know it wasn't his day when Blanner tabled pocket kings. A king fell on the flop to confirm the win. Powell settled for AU$28,120 for second. The other British player who made the final table were Charlie Combes, James Keys, Andrew Teng and John Eames.

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1 Soren Blanner 37,920
2 Jack Powell 28,120
3 Barry Drysdale 18,960
4 Charlie Combes 14,220
5 Justin Walch 11,060
6 James Keys 9,480
7 Andrew Teng 7,900
8 Chris Yea 6,320
9 Daniel Neilson 4,720
10 John Eames 3,160
