When 14 of 2,017 players returned for the final day all eyes were on Phil Ivey, even as Taylor Paur held the chip lead. But Mr. Ivey didn't get many minutes in the spotlight as he was the first player to be eliminated (14th place ). Once Phil Ivey was out of the picture, all eyes were on Taylor Paur, who made it to the final table as the chip leader.

While most poker players think €100,000 is an awful lot of money, there are some who have the bankroll to use it for a single tournament. On Monday, the 2013 EPT Monaco Super High Roller (€100k buy-in) kicked off and saw, believe it or not, 48 entries. Phil Ivey was in for two bullets, but still he wasn't among the 29 players who survived the day.

Jason Mercier had better "luck" than Mr. Ivey. He bagged up 1,183,000 chips and has about 1 million more than his closest opponent - Sorel Mizzi. Here are few other big names who made it through Day 1: Viktor Blom, Sam Trickett, Erik Seidel, Faraz Jaka and Scott Seiver.

There's €4,900,000 in the prize pool at the moment, but most probably it will pass the 5 million mark today as registration close at noon. It will be interesting to see if Phil Ivey makes another attempt!

Posted on Tuesday, May 14, 2013 by "T".

Last week, Phil Ivey, 36, filed a lawsuit against Mayfair club Crockfords at the High Court in London for refusing to give him the £7.8 million he won there in August last year playing Punto Banco, a game based purley on luck.

On Sunday, Daily Mail reported that Crockfords Casino, the oldest casino in Britain, refuses to pay Mr. Ivey because they believe he and his companion (a Chinese women who is banned from at least two casinos around the world due to alleged cheating) could 'read' the back of the cards and get a huge edge against the house.

Posted on Thursday, April 11, 2013 by "T".

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.

WSOP APAC Event #4 Final Table Results

1 Aaron Lim $233,800
2 Andy Lee $144,530
3 Jan Suchanek $103,766
4 Brendon Rubie $74,590
5 Sam Higgs $53,615
6 Billy Seri $38,545
