The second event of the Aussie Millions Poker Championship came to a close yesterday and saw Australian competitor Sam Vakili walk away with the top prize of $53,600.
A total of 233 players were welcomed to the $1,100 buy-in pot-limit Omaha tournament and the action was frantic from the start as players hit the rail at a tremendous rate.By level 17 a final table of eight players lined up for the finale with Vakili leading the way.Having the chip lead from the start allowed Vakili the luxury of sitting back and watching the short stacks go for broke. Six eliminations in the space of just a couple of hours meant the stack-to-blind ratio was small with players having bulging stacks in the face of relatively modest blinds.However, Vakili never faltered and, biding his time, kept the pots small and took his opportunities when they were presented.Despite losing his chip lead to heads-up opponent John Messina, Vakili kept his composure and eventually regained his dominant position.A final flush for Vakili was enough to oust Messina’s pair of aces and give him the second gold ring of this year’s Aussie Millions Poker Championship.Event two Aussie Millions Poker Championship results:1: Sam Vakili - $53,6002: John Messina - $37,3003: Trung Tran - $29,1254: Nick Nicolaou - $22,1255: Simon Thwaites - $17,4406: Vadim Pinsky - $13,9507: Minh Nguyen - $10,5008: Graeme Putt - $7,000Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
