Aussie Millions Super High Roller Tournament

Some of the biggest names in poker will be taking part in the Aussie Million’s $250,000 Poker “Super High Roller” event, which kicked off yesterday with 20 players, including Phil Ivey, Annette Obrestad and Australia’s own Shane Warne.

Up for grabs: a cool $2.5 million for first place, with the second and third place players taking $1.5 and $1 million respectively.

It’s pretty insane, (the event) was the first one of its kind and it’s kind of cool getting a chance to play in it,” Obrestad told the Melbourne Herald.

“You can’t think of the money though. You’re just there to play poker so you play.”

Obrestad, the first female to ever win a World Series of Poker main event (2006 WSOPE), is the only woman playing in the “Super High Roller” tournament.

The event is taking place at the Crown Casino in Melbourne. Crown’s executive manager of table games, Sean McCreery, explained that the tournament is designed to make Australia one of the foremost poker destinations in the world.

“We try to create a whole experience for them here at Crown. Some of the players have told me this is their favourite event of the season.”
