Gaming magnate James Packer has been involved in an altercation with a security guard, Dr Iskandar Chaban, who failed to recognize him at his own casino. The confrontation occurred when the 60-year-old security guard attempted to block Mr. Packer's entry to the main gaming floor of the casino.
In case you missed it, the schedule for the 2015 Aussie Millions (part of the Asia Pacific Poker Tour) has now been released. Not much has changed since last time and PokerStars will be the main sponsor of the Main Event once again. Crown's 2015 Aussie Millions Poker Championship begins on January 14 with the opening event and concludes on February 2. In total, there are 21 separate events with buy-ins ranging from AUD$1,150 to AUD$250,000!
The final table of the WSOP APAC AU$10,000 Main Event is being played right now at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia. Daniel Negreanu (Canada) and Benny Spindler (Germany) are two of the big stacks on the final table. Check the live stream below to find out how they are doing.
Aaron Lim is the latest champion at Crown Casino in Melbourne. The 26-year-old Australian poker pro bested a field of 167 players in WSOP Asia Pacific Event #4 ($5,000 NLHE Six Max) and collected a first prize of $233,800 - along with a WSOP gold bracelet. This marked his second win of a major tournament this year. That's right. Lim took down the 2013 PokerStars.net APPT Seoul Main Event last month for $111,000! Very impressive!
"It's huge," Lim said following the win. It's at my second home, Melbourne's my second home. I'm incredibly honored to be the first Australian to take down a bracelet. I was a bit concerned when Americans took the first two, then Ivey took the third, so it is lucky number four for me I guess.
