Aussie Millions 2011

Aussie Millions 2011 kicks off Thursday January 13, 2011 down under at the fabulous Crown Casino.  Gambling911.com’s own Special Contributor Greg Tingle will be offering regular reports on the mega event and the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest cash prize tournament of the year.   

The schedule will run from January 13-31, with 20 events in all. 

“As Gambling911.com continues to expand its testicles into the poker realm, there will be expansive coverage of the Aussie Millions 2011 poker tournament,” commented Jenny Woo, who regularly interviews big name poker players. 

$2 million AUD will be rewarded to the winner of the main event.  That translates into $136 US dollars.  Just kidding.  Actually, the equivalent is 1,990,954.17 USD, for those of you wondering. 

High stakes events include the likes of the $100,000 Challenge that starts on Jan. 22.  There is also an Aussie Millions high stakes cash game with a $200,000 minimum buy-in that kicks off Jan. 24.

The Aussie Millions event went international in 2003 with a mere 122 entrants.  In 2011, at least 800 players are anticipated to take part in the Main Event, with Fox Sports Net broadcasting the tournament to more than 100 million homes worldwide.

Australians have won the main event over the last two years.  Russian Alexander Kostritsyn won in 2008 while big name Dane player Gus Hansen took home $1.5 million in 2007.
