The 2015 Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge rolls on today with Day 2 action beginning at 2:15 p.m. local time. After Day 1 action yesterday, 28 players advanced. Leading the pack was Jason Mo after he bagged up an impressive stack of 637,000 in chips.
Mo took over the chip lead thanks to a big double through Jeff Rossiter in the final level of the night. It was Mo's that held against the for Rossiter, and from there it was nothing but smooth sailing for him to close out the night on top. Not only was Mo the only player to eclipse 600,000 in chips, but he was also the only player to finish with over 500,000. Erik Seidel bagged up 493,500, and Connor Drinan finished on 403,500 to round out the top three on the leaderboard.
After the dust had settled on Day 1, 63 total entries had been generated. That number is a little less than last year's 76, but with registration still open until the start of Day 2, it is highly expected that one or two new players join the field and several others who busted yesterday reenter. This should push the field size to over 70 and challenge the record set in 2014.
