Leo Boxell Wins APPT Melbourne Main Event 2011

69-year-old Australian Leo “The Mechanic” Boxell has won the AUD $330,000 grand prize at this year’s APPT Melbourne Main Event. 

"Thank you Crown, thank you PokerStars and thank you for all the people who hung around to support me. I really appreciate it," said Boxell in a brief post-tournament address to the crowd.

"Miserations to the runner-up, but he has played tremendously for four days. Very aggressive young fellow from New Zealand. I congratulate him for making second, and I'm sure there's going to be more wins for him in the future. Thank you very much," Boxell added.
