Aussie Millions 2011 Main Event

Australia’s poker darling and former World Series of Poker main event winner, Joe Hachem, shouted “Shuffle Up and Deal!”

And there we have it, the start of the Aussie Millions 2011 main event. 

Like with the World Series of Poker, bookies across the globe were taking bets on who will win the 2011 Aussie Millions poker tournament.  Phil Ivey was the favorite with Gus Hansen, Patrik Antonius and Annette Obrestad, who came in 7th place last year, next in line. 

The Main Event of the series is the Southern Hemisphere's richest poker tournament with a prize pool in excess of AU$7 million.

Australia’s Tyron Krost won last year’s event and walked off with $2 million, which tied the biggest Aussie Millions cash-out with the year previous.

The structure of the Main Event is slightly different than that of most other major tournaments. While most major Hold 'em tournaments, including the World Series of Poker Main Event, play at nine-handed tables throughout, the Aussie Millions Main Event begins with eight-handed tables. Play continues eight-handed until the field is reduced to 36 players, at which point all tables are six-handed. The 2009 Aussie Millions Main Event structure will see Day 1 divided into three flights, with blind levels of 90 minutes' duration. From Day 2 until the completion of the tournament, the blind levels are 120 minutes long.
