Two Unusual Suspects

Nível 1 : 50/100, 0 ante

Marc MacDonell had spent some time in Sydney with his family and then headed over to Melbourne to compete in the Aussie Millions. Louis Salter, the younger brother of Jack, is also here as well. And then, Bruno Portaro has also entered the competition. Among other results, Portaro finished 13th in the 2014 WSOP APAC A$ 1,100 No Limit Hold'em Accumulator event here at the Crown Casino in Melbourne.

Take Us To Your Leader

Nível 1 : 50/100, 0 ante

As the first level of this first Aussie Millions Championship event comes to a close, a local Melbourne grinder has emerged as the early chip leader.

Luke McLean, who is no stranger to success at Crown having cashed for upwards of $70,000 in tournaments here, just got off to a fast start, busting one foe when he flopped a set of eights.

His unfortunate opponent had {a-}{10-} for top two, and after a raising war on the flop, got it in, failed to improve and went broke, allowing McLean's ascention into the chip lead.

Who is in so Far?

Most of the participants are local players and four of them immediately came to mind from the 2014 World Series of Poker Asia Pacific in Julius Colman, Sam Khouiss, Tony Kambouroglou and Geoffrey Mooney.

Dunst Joins Field

Nível 1 : 50/100, 0 ante

One of the most-easy to recognize players in today's field surely is Tony Dunst. As international well known poker pro, the American is setting another standard in always dressing up nicely when playing and sure enough came in to take his seat while wearing a jacket.

In one of his first few hands at the table, there was a limped three-way pot with Dunst in the big blind. The flop {9-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{10-Hearts} saw a bet worth 225 by the player in the small blind and both his opponents including Dunst tossed their cards into the muck.

Cards are in the Air

Nível 1 : 50/100, 0 ante

The cards are officially in the air and the shuffle up and deal was done by Andrew "Freddie" Flintoff. Well known for playing cricket in Australia, the Brit grew up with chess and also plays poker from time to time as well. Unfortunately, Flintoff cannot compete in the Opening Event due to work duties, though.
