James Dempsey heads Aussie Millions day 1B

Tuesday, 24 January 2012

James Dempsey was the man with all the momentum during the second opening flight of Aussie Millions Main Event. Flushy was down to just 6,000 chips at one stage but went on a heater before the close to finish the day with a stack of 189,000, enough to give him the chip lead.

A total of 187 players started Day 1B with 92 making it through to Day 2. The most notable name among those survivors was Tom 'durrrr' Dwan who closed the day in eighth place on 107,400. Other notables who will be back are 'Cowboy' Kenna James, David Bach and former WSOPE Main Event winner Annette Obrestad. Former Aussie Millions winners Tyron Krost and Stewart Scott will also be return to the tables later this week.

A big field is expected for the third and final opening day flight which gets under way overnight UK time. Join us tomorrow for updates.
