THE final table of the 2017 Aussie Millions Main Event will be played out on Sunday at Melbourne’s Crown Casino and it’s an Aussie in the box seat.
And what a fairytale it would be if Shurane Vijayaram can hold on and win the $7 million dollar tournament after qualifying for the Main Even through a $130 rebuy satellite. According to online databases he has no live cashes to his name.
Vijayaram has more than double the chips of his nearest competitor with 7,470,000, Englishman Ben Heath has 3,270,000.
Joining Vijayaram on the final table will be German superstar
Fedor Holz. An instantly recognizable name to any poker fan, and at the tender age of 23, Holz has amassed over $20 million in live earnings and now has a chance to add another seven figure score to that tally.
Also making an appearance on this final table will be prominent Australian pro Jeff Rossiter, who finished third in this same event back in 2011 for a cool AUD$700,000.
The winner of the Aussie Millions ‘Main Event’ will not only walk away with AUD$1.6 million first prize, but also the coveted ‘Main Event’ Champion bracelet designed by ANTON jewellery and valued at over AUD$30,000 for their efforts.
The final table commences at 12.30pm in the Crown Poker Room. Spectators are welcome.
