Who Follows Up Alexander Trevallion as $25,000 Challenge Champion?

Last years winner Alexander Trevallion
Last years winner Alexander Trevallion

It's time for the first High Roller tournament of the 2016 Aussie Millions, and PokerNews is here to bring you all the updates you can ask for.

The $25,000 Challenge at the Aussie Millions goes back to 2012 when 20 players participated and Dominykas "domcee" Karmazinas from Lithuania took down the lot. Before that, just a $25,000 shoot-out invitational was held by Full Tilt Poker who was the sponsor of the event at that time.

Since the inaugural tournament in 2012, the tournament has grown each and every year. Last year a total of 104 entries were made into the tournament, creating a prize pool of AU$2,496,000. An incredibly international final table was won by an Aussie; Alexander "alextrev1111" Trevallion from Sydney took down the tournament for almost A$650,000 after striking a deal heads-up with Germany's Tobias Reinkemeier.

This year the $25,000 Challenge plays before the Main Event starts, and PokerNews will be there from start to finish. This two-day tournament will start Friday January 22nd at 2:10 pm. Players will start with a stack of 50,000 and a duration of 40-minutes for the first 6 levels. After that the tournament will switch to 60-minute levels. Late registration is available for 8 levels and players are allowed a single re-entry into the tournament in case they bust. The tournament may commence up to 8-handed, moving to 6-handed as soon as practicable after registrations closes. The total structure for the event you can find here (.PDF). A total of 12 levels will be played on the first day.

Yunis Calls Yan Down

Nível 1 : 100/200, 0 ante

After unknown action we picked things up on the flop when the board showed {7-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{J-Hearts}. [Removed:17] bet from the cutoff and the player on his left called after which Nick Yunis called from the small blind as well.

The turn brought the {A-Clubs} and Yunis checked, after which Yan bet another 4,300.

"That teddybear is really intimidating," the player on the button said to Yan, who's sporting a teddybear t-shirt.

After a while the button folded, and Yunis made the call once more.

The river completed the board with the {8-Clubs} and this time Yan checked behind with Yunis checked to him.

Yan showed {K-Hearts}{10-Spades} for king-high, and Yunis raked in the pot with {10-Hearts}{6-Hearts}.

Eights Great for Farrell

Nível 1 : 100/200, 0 ante

Christopher Frank raised to 500 from the button and EPT12 Malta champ Niall Farrell defended his big blind to see a {7-Spades}{j-Spades}{10-Clubs} flop, which they both checked. Action repeated itself on the {2-Diamonds} turn, and then Farrell tossed out 700 on the {3-Clubs} river.

Frank snap-called by tossing in a single chip, but mucked just as soon as Farrell rolled over the {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} for a pair of eights.
