After three days of action in Australia, English grinder Rupert Elder has won the opening event of the Aussie Millions over Martin Finger for $250,000.
The re-entry tournament offered a unique opportunity for players to buy back in up to twice on each of the three starting days if they were eliminated.The ability to rebuy multiple times meant the $1,100 tournament generated a huge prizepool thanks to a total of 1,338 total entries.Indeed, such was the size of the event that it broke the record for the largest Australian $1,000 tournament ever.With $250,000 on offer for the winner, the action on the second day went by at a ferocious pace leaving a final table of ten competitors to play out the event yesterday.Heading into the finale Rupert Edler held a commanding chip lead and never relinquished his position.Despite tough competition from the likes of Brendon Rubie and Martin Finger, Elder managed to parlay his momentum from Day Two and take down a championship ring after defeating Finger heads-up.Final table results:First: Rupert Elder - $250,000Second: Martin Finger - $160,000Third: Fabian Craib - $120,000Fourth: Dusan Stoevski - $96,000Fifth: Brendon Rubie - $81,000Sixth: Ted Nguyen - $66,000Seventh: Marwin Nassif - $52,000Eighth: Phillip Libeau - $38,000Ninth: Ashley Warner - $25,000Tenth: Nali Kaselias - $13,500Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
