Just 8 left at Aussie Millions Main Event

Friday, 28 January 2011

Play has drawn to a close at the Crown Casino with the original Main Event field of 821 down to eight, just one short of the official final table.

The sole remaining American, Randy Dorfman leads the way with a stack of 3,895,000 which represents just over one quarter of the chips in play. The biggest name left is that of Finland's Patrik Antonius. The Full Tilt pro lost a couple of hefty pots just before the close but is still handily placed with 1.3m chips.

The rest of the field is like a repeat of the recent Ashes series with three Australians and Englishmen represented (being completely accurate the final table should then include a South African or two). Joining the big names of Chris Moorman and James Keys in the pommie corner is BlackBelt Poker's Sam Razavi. The 20-year-old actor from Brighton had a great day and will be earning his biggest tournament pay day to date. Of course the poms won't be having it all their own way tomorrow with Jeff Rossiter, David Gorr and Michael Ryan hoping to keep the Aussie Millions title on home soil.

The chip counts and seat draw when play resumes is as follows:

1 Chris Moorman England 955,000
2 James Keys England 2,395,000
3 Patrik Antonius Finland 1,300,000
4 Jeff Rossiter Australia 1,235,000
5 Randy Dorfman USA 3,895,000
6 David Gorr Australia 2,370,000
7 Sam Razavi England 1,360,000
8 Michael Ryan Australia 960,000

Join us tomorrow to see who is celebrating a AU$2m pay day.
