The 2015 Aussie Millions is about to add three new million dollar (AUD) scores to a trio of poker players as 8 of the nosebleeiest tournament pros have earned their seat that the prestigious (Aussie Millions 100k Challenge* final table.
With 70 total entries, which included some of the biggest names the game has to offer like Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius and Dan Smith, only 8 glided their way into the cash as all hope to be the guy to take home the $1.8M AUD first place prize.
Just because greatness like Ivey has hit the rail, doesn’t mean that this isn’t going to be one of the toughest final tables in recent memory as some of the most skilled players are still left in the field. Ole Schemion will start the day with the chiplead followed closely by Jason Mo and high-roller crusher *Erik 'Seiborg’ Seidel.
Former “young guns” Justin Bonomo and Dani Stern hold down the middle of the pack as betting man Richard Yong along with Scott Seiver and Aussie local Alex Trevallion round out those that are in the money.
That final table feeling is going to last a little longer than usual for these guys as, in an effort to let all 8 play in the Main Event, the completion of this tournament is being staved off until Saturday Jan 31.
Don’t make your weekend plans around watching this finale though as there’s no live stream for this one, but it is being filmed for a future broadcast.
