Thomas Remains Active

Nível 23 : 15,000/30,000, 5,000 ante

Alexandre Thomas faced the open-raise of Louis Salter for 65,000 and clicked it to 115,000 out of the small blind. Salter made the call and saw the heads-up flop of {7-Spades}{3-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}. Thomas continued for 125,000 and Salter called before the Aussie instantly moved all in when the {4-Hearts} appeared on the turn. Salter sighed and let go to slip below one million in chips.

Four-Bet Shove from Aydogan

Nível 23 : 15,000/30,000, 5,000 ante

Matthew Wakeman opened to 65,000 and Aditya Rao three-bet to 135,000 from the cutoff. On the button, Tatjana Zizic gave her table neighbor a staredown but eventually folded whereas Sinan Aydogan moved all in for another 635,000 on top. Wakeman quickly folded and Rao did so as well after getting the count.

Zizic Races For It All

Nível 23 : 15,000/30,000, 5,000 ante
Tatjana Zizic
Tatjana Zizic

Tatjana Zizic shoved her last 175,000 in the middle over a min-raise from Stephen Koutsouvelis on the button.

Koutsouvelis made the call with the {4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} and Zizic was racing for her tournament life with the {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}.

The {q-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{6-Spades} flop gave her the lead, but things got sweaty on the {5-Diamonds} turn. The {q-Diamonds} river ensured Zizic the double and drew the two about even in chips, still near the bottom of the list.

Kings for Thomas

Nível 23 : 15,000/30,000, 5,000 ante

In the first few hands, there were three all ins but neither one found a call. Then, Ferenc Riech opened to 65,000 for the second time in a row and Alexandre Thomas three-bet to 130,000 from one seat over. Riech called and checked the flop {J-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}. Thomas led for 130,000 and Riech quickly folded, then got greeted by the Perth-based Thomas with {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs}.

The third and final day of the A$1,150 Opening Event of the 2016 Aussie Million Poker Championship gets underway in half an hour from now at 12.30 p.m. local time in the poker room of the Crown Entertainment Complex in Melbourne. The biggest casino in the southern hemisphere saw a stunning field of 1,320 entries throughout four starting flights and yesterday's second tournament day reduced the hopefuls to only 17.

Leading the field is Canadian poker pro Sean Giesbrecht with 1,690,000 followed by American Jacob Elmore Dahl with 1,449,000. Aditya Rao completes the overnight podium with a stack of 1,398,000 and another two players crossed one million in chips: Louis Salter (1,300,000) and Day 2 chip leader Ferenc Riech (1,001,000).

The remaining field mostly consists of players from Australia such as Kevin Blackwood (935,000), Matthew Wakeman (706,000), Alexandre Thomas (521,000) and Daniel Neilson (298,000). Tatjana Zizic (271,000) is the last woman remaining and starts under immediate pressure with returning blinds of 15,000-30,000 and a running ante of 5,000 for level 23.

The PokerNews live reporting team will be on hand until a winner is crowned, all remaining contenders are guaranteed at least A$10,145 for their efforts whereas all eyes are set on the first-place payout of A$275,300 and the LK Boutique winner ring.
