Phil Ivey Wins Aussie Millions Super High Roller
By Matt Kaufman, Rakeback.com Poker News Editor
Remember the days when a “High Roller” tournament with a $25,000 entry fee was enough to draw the attention of the poker world? Then came the $100,000 buy-in “Super High Roller” events.
At the Aussie Millions, however, the $100,000 event isn’t even their “Super High Roller” tournament- that designation is saved for the $250,000 buy-in.
16 players paid the massive entry fee earlier this week, and as always, the field was full of well-known players with big bankrolls and bigger egos.
Normally we wouldn’t list the complete results of a tournament, but in this case we’ll make an exception:
- Phil Ivey – AU$2,000,000
- Patrik Antonius – AU$1,200,000
- Gus Hansen – AU$800,000
- Daniel Negreanu
- Sorel Mizzi
- Winfred Yu
- Tony Bloom
- Dan Smith
- Jason Mercier
- Paul Phua
- Nick Wong
- Erik Seidel
- Sam Trickett
- John Juanda
- Richard Yong
- Tom Dwan
We can’t spot the fish in that field, but we imagine Phil Ivey can. Patrik Antonius and Gus Hansen must each be content with their results, although perhaps the same can’t be said for bubble boy Daniel Negreanu.
