Aussie Millions (established 1998) has been a part of PokerStars Asia Pacific Poker Tour for the past 3 years, however, it will once again be a stand-alone event in 2017. The reason for this is that PokerStars will re-brand all its global tournaments (EPT, APPT, etc.) into one global tour.

The clock ticks on and the world continues to spin....... And nothing stands still. Another change in the global poker scenery sees an opportunity for some other company to exploit the success of the Aussie Millions for their own benefit. There must be something in it ultimately for pokerstars otherwise they wouldn't be doing it. Keep breathing and keep playing!

It´s not a big surprise and i can´t see what good or sad on this News. But Stars was a Sponsor of a lot of nice live poker series and i think the re-brand was ok. All players can choose between many interesting live series.

I have always loved watching Aussie Millions, the longest-running poker tournament in the Asia Pacific, on PokerTube and YouTube. Aussie Millions has been and will be one of the best poker venues among poker players from around the globe.

In other words they found a way doing more money, thus the new changes Unless they were losing with this which i doubt. If it works for your you stick on it. But anyway this is not a disaster for the specific series. The more there ae up the better is for the poker world.
