Crown Casino Aussie Millions Poker Championship kicks off, by Greg Tingle - 16th January 2010

Melbourne, if not the whole of Australia, has poker fever, thanks to casino king James Packer's brainchild, "Aussie Millions".

Media Man long time friend, associate and eyes and ears of the industry, Keith "Bendigo" Sloan, tipped us off that it would be huge and he was right on the money.

Let's start with some big picture stuff.... poker has been widely acknowledged in a court of law as primarily a game of skill. Sure, there's some luck involved, but over time on measured tests, the skill factor comes through. This is a key point in some of the arguments put forward by the Poker Players Alliance. Folks, professional poker is big business and is also a form of sports tourism, something that's been picked up on by the Victorian government, but something Australia's Labor government is still trying to grasp. Maybe it will be covered in the Aussie version of "Casino Jack"!

Let it be said from the get-go that Crown's Aussie Millions gives some much needed balance into the news media coverage of Australia's casino sector, which has been copping a bit of a battering of late. Crown's connection with tourism, sports tourism and high rollers is undisputed, and the powers that be at Crown do give back to society in a number of capacities, some of which is reported and other elements that are done on the quite. It was impossible to miss Warnie and Joe Hachem on Network Ten's 7PM project last month.

It's a given that when so many whales, high rollers and the like are in town, there's vast financial resources not far from the felt.

The Salvation Army and Unicef are just a couple of worthy causes that Crown and the powers that be have assisted over the years.

This year sees a reported 1,143 entrants have a punt at Aussie Millions...a record for major poker tournaments in Australia.

A $1,143,000 prize pool will be split amongst the top 108 players, with first place set to collect the first Aussie Millions Gold Championship Ring over $200,000 in cash.

Numerous big names were in attendance for day one including Tony G, Clonie Gowen, Sorel Mizzi, David Saab, Jason Gray, Paul Khoury, Kenneth Damm and 2005 WSOP Champ Joe Hachem. Players who returned to the felt for a second chance included Tony Dunst , Emad Tahtouh, Billy Argyros, Lee Nelson, Josh Field, Ben Delaney, Andrew Jeffreys, Leo Boxell, Amanda De Cesare, Tino Lechich, James Akenhead and 2009 Aussie Millions Champion (and PartyPoker sponsored) Stewart Scott.

Nick Haidaris has emerged with the chip lead of 165,300. Eighty-three players remained from Day 1's starting field. Those back for Day 2 include David Saab, JP Kelly, Antonis Kambouroglou, Brendan Edmonds, Con Tsapkounis, and Jim Sachinidis.

Players not back for day 2 include Tony Dunst, 2009 Aussie Millions Main Event Champ Stewart Scott, Emad Tahtouh, Barny Boatman, Matthew Pearson, Rayan Nathan, Joe Hachem, Tony G, Lee Nelson, Billy Argyros, Jonathan Karamalikis, Michael Guzzardi, James Akenhead, Ben Delaney, and Sorel Mizzi.

Day 2 at Crown Casino kicks off at 12:30 p.m where approximately 200 players will be giving it all they have in their quest for the championship.

Media Man encourages players (and management) on a winning streak to continue to give back to society, and of course the world is aware of those less fortunate including in Haiti which was recently rocked by an earthquake. Casinos and big gaming companies have much bigger resources than most, so let's see if they can even come close to helping to the extent that they did when the Aussie Victorian bushfires hit last March.

Aussie Millions Winner Signs With PartyPoker - 6th October 2009

Stewart Scott, who made history earlier this year by winning the Aussie Millions — the first time an Australian has done so in the modern era — has signed a deal to represent, the company recently announced.

A former gourmet chef turned professional poker player, the 37-year-old Scott perfectly captures the spirit of the casual-turned-professional poker player. He’s making his Party Poker debut at the PokerNews Cup in Melbourne, which recently got underway.

"It's great to put pen to paper and sign-up to represent - it’s always been my site of choice," said Scott in a news release.

"I am looking forward to defending my Aussie Millions title in January and am even more excited that I will be doing this as an ambassador for PartyPoker with a large team of online qualifiers!"

The Australian Poker Championship, commonly known as Aussie Millions is a poker tournament held at the Crown Casino, in Melbourne, Australia. It is the Southern Hemisphere's richest poker tournament with a prize pool in excess of AU$7 Million.

Poker at Crown was introduced in June 1997, with the first major championship held shortly after in July 1998. The Main Event was a AU$1,000 buy in Limit Holdem tournament that attracted 74 entries with a AU$74,000 prize pool.

The Crown Australian Poker Championship, or the ‘Aussie Millions’ as it became known, moved to January in 2001, attracting 40 entrants with a AU$5,000 buy in for a prize pool of AU$200,000. January 2003 saw the event go international, attracting a field of 122 entrants and a AUD$1,200,000 prize pool.

In January 2005, the Aussie Millions continued to grow with 263 participants paying AU$10,000 each to enter the No Limit Holdem Main Event, generating the biggest prize pool ever in the Southern Hemisphere of AU$2,630,000. Over half the field was from overseas including players from New Zealand, England, Ireland, Norway, Denmark, USA, Sweden, Holland, Canada, Italy and Lebanon.

In 2006, 418 players competed for a share of the AU$4,180,000 prize pool, including some of the biggest names in the Poker world such as WSOP Champion Joe Hachem, along with Phil Ivey, John Juanda and Daniel Negreanu.

The 2007 championship commenced on Sunday 14th January, 2007 with the final table held on Friday 19th January, 2007. The buy-in was AU$10,500 (AU$10,000+AU$500). A record 747 players entered, which generated a prize pool of AU$7,470,000. The top 80 players were "in the money" and received between AU$15,000 and AU$1,500,000 each.

The 2008 championship concluded on Sunday 20th January, 2008 with the winner being the 21 year old Russian Alexander Kostritsyn. The buy-in was AU$10,500 (AU$10,000+AU$500). A record 780 players entered, which generated a prize pool of AU$7,800,000. The top 80 players were "in the money" and received between AU$15,000 and AU$1,650,000 each. (Credit: Wikipedia).
