Dan Smith Wins Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge

Poker pro Dan Smith beat the likes of WSOP Main Event champ Joe Hachem and Danish pro Gus Hansen to win the Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge and the $1,012,000 that goes with it. 

Mikhail Smirnov finished in second place and takes home an amazing $616,000 while Hachem finished in third with $330,000 and Tony G goes home with $242,000 for his 4th place finish. 

Dan Smith’s previous biggest cashout was at the PokerStars Barcelona Open in 2008 where he finished in 7th place and left with $30,225. 

Smirnov beats his previous biggest cashout as well, a 15th place finish this past summer in the $25,000 Heads-Up Championship at the World Series of Poker.  He walked off with $67,436 in that event.
