Aussie Millions Ready to Open Tournament Poker Year
If you ask me, Melbourne is the best place to be in in January as it the first major stop on the live tournament poker calendar and also the host of the annual Australian Open.
Focusing on poker, for another year Crown Melbourne, one of Australia’s premium casino locations, will play host to the Aussie Millions Poker Championship. The poker festival is usually the first major live tournament event to take place throughout the poker year and is undoubtedly one of the biggest.
Next year’s Aussie Millions is scheduled to take place from Saturday, January 4 through Saturday, January 25. As usual, the host venue, Crown Melbourne, is gearing up preparations to welcome some of Australia’s and the world’s best tournament poker players.
The 2020 edition of the major poker festival is set to feature 23 tournaments, which is slightly down from this year’s 27 events.
As usual, the Aussie Millions will kick off with a multiple starting flight Opening Event. It will take place from January 4 through January 9 and will feature five starting flights and two more days of play. The tournament will start with a guaranteed prize pool of A$1 million. Players will be able to enter it by paying the A$1,150 buy-in fee.
High Rollers and the Main Event
The Aussie Millions has traditionally offered quality action for fans of high roller action and the upcoming edition of the festival will be just as generous as every year.
There will be three Challenge events – one with a A$25,000 buy-in fee, one with a A$50,000 buy-in, and of course the A$100,000 buy-in Challenge.
The highest buy-in tournament on the Aussie Millions’ schedule will take place over two days, starting from January 23. US poker pro Cary Katz took down this year’s edition of the A$100,000 Challenge. The player bested a field of 42 entrants for a A$1.5 million payday.
The A$10,600 Main Event is slated to start on January 17 with the first of three starting flights played over three separate days. The tournament will end on January 24 when its official final table will be played.
Another American poker star, Bryn Kenney, was crowned the victor of this year’s Main Event. The player was the last man standing from a field of 822 participants. After a three-way deal with Mike Del Vecchio and Andrew Hinrichsen, Kenney took home a first-place prize of A$1,272,598.
For another year, the Aussie Millions Tournament of Champions will be part of the festival’s schedule. The tournament will take place on January 21 and will feature a A$1,150 buy-in. Daniel Tang from Hong Kong won this year’s edition of the event for a first-place prize of A$74,430. The 2019 edition of the Aussie Millions Tournament of Champions drew a field of 309 entries who generated a prize pool of A$316,725.
