Aussie Millions results round up for 2013

The Aussie Millions has come to a breathless climax for another year, with a tense Main Event Final Table going down to the wire yet again. It was Malaysian Mervin ‘The Cat’ Chan who took the plaudits (and the AU$1.6million, and the winner’s bracelet, and a huge trophy, and a Chrysler 300C.

Chan outlasted all 629 other entrants, and showing great composure to match his endurance in a final table that included some big names, and some seriously good players. As expected, that final table was a truly international affair, with American pros Dan Shak and Patrick Antonius separated by local boy Jarrod Glennon in the top three for chips held as they sat down. Joe Cabret provided another Australian hope, David Yan was looking to make the most of his journey from New Zealand, and there was a strong Asian connection, thanks to Jay Tan (who seems to be from everywhere, depending on who you ask), and eventual winner Mervin Chan.

An Australian Festival of Poker:

Whilst the Main Event is the one that holds the headlines, it would be wrong to think that that was all that was going on at the Aussie Millions. There were 26 tournaments at the event this year, which adds up to plenty of winners and plenty of Aussie dollars won. There were big, big events like the AU$100,000 Challenge and the AU$250,000 Challenge, which drew surprisingly big fields given the sheer scale of the buy-ins.

And there were the smaller buy-in events which produced some of the best Australian Poker of the tournament, and added some new names to the Aussie Millions Roll of Honour. The long and short of it is that the Aussie Millions has become the premier Poker event for Australia, and has established itself as an event that pro players from all around the world consider a ‘must attend’.

Add to that the great press for the Crown Melbourne casino resort, which once again provided luxurious surroundings for the event, and the showcase for emerging Poker talent (a pleasing amount if it Australian) and you get an event that ticks all of the boxes. We are already looking forward to next year, and will be back in the Poker Rooms and at our favourite Casinos Games at Spin Palace Casino, sharpening our game and nurturing our dreams...
