Ajez Leads Final 12 in Six-Max Event; Hachem, Tedeschi and Arnett in Contention
Nearly all live poker cashes of Brisbane's Najeem Ajez were right here at the Crown Casino in Melbourne where he is a well-known reg and he may score a career-best payday of A$128,000 if he were to take down the A$1,150 Six-Max Event at the 2020 Aussie Millions.
The circumstances after Day 1 are in his favor as he enters the final day as the chip leader with 830,000. Michael Tran is second in chips with 750,000 and Pasquale Braco from Italy, a first-time visitor to Melbourne, returns to the third-biggest stack of 666,000.
Frenchman Paul-Francois Tedeschi is seeking for a special birthday present the following day as he enters the final day of the event with an above-average stack of 591,000. Another name that will certainly ring a bell in Australia is the one of Daniel Hachem, son of legendary Joe Hachem and a poker aficionado just like his father. With more than $160,000 in live cashes, he is looking for the first major title of his young poker career.
Also in contention are Kristy Arnett, Thomas Scholze and Philipp Kampf, the latter is one of the short stacks when the cards go back in the air with blinds of 6,000-12,000 and a big blind ante of 6,000.
