Tags: Aussie Millions, Shurane Vijayaram
Posted on 30 January 2017 by "T".
Shurane Vijayaram came into the final table with a substantial chip lead and battled Ben Heath who had the second biggest chip stack at the start of the day for the championship of the 2017 Aussie Millions Main Event. Eventually, the advantage in stack had become one of Vijayaram's keys to winning the grand prize.

well it's stories like these that attract new players from all over the world to big live tournaments and to poker as a whole- i doubt that say a complete tennis amateur who qualified to aussie open via some qualifier because most of his opponents were injured or got a bird flu would manage to win it no matter what miracles he performs.... but in poker it's doable... as we see here.

Many congratulations to Shurane Vijayaram on winning this prestigious event and the massive first prize. His win was even more remarkable because he won his seat on a satellite.

12307% ROI if he stops playing now, I think he will come into history and Guinness world records books as the poker player who has won over 1 million dollars and has the biggest ROi. He can also be a good example to other liw stakes players that it is indeed possible to win big tournaments just don't give up.

good fairy tale for the local man with just a small investment of 100 dollars he got 1.6 millions and that is why we fking love the game because of stories like these... but what I was impressed is that Fedor Holz manage to reach the final table as well as the 100k buy in tournament too Thumbs Up

This story is very optimistic ... not only the players with big money can win millions ... there is hope that with a small fee a player can reach great heights if he plays well ... I'm very happy for him and I congratulate him on his victory

Now this is a great investment.
From 130 that he put in to play the qualifiers, he managed to win the main event.
Imagine the feelings he has.
No point saying that the luck was on his side Smile

My sincere congratulations go out to Shurane Vijayaram on winning the 2017 Aussie Millions Main Event. What a great achievement! I wonder how much tax he will have to pay for his income of AUD$1.6 million.

Fascinating ROI, and an amazing performance. Loving the Tax comment as well, heh. Probably something like 30-40%, but still, he's gonna have nearly a million left. Good enough in my book ^_^

I think he will spend a lot of this money on cars travelling to new places, expensive clothes, watches and then he will play a lot more poker at big stakes and some casino games, go to nightclubs, enjoy his life and after this not a lot is left,this is how it happens most times

yes indeed Gerimantas, i think you are right, we certainly know how it happens most of the times- most of us here at brm have experienced similar wins to shurane vijayaram and then blown it all at the high stakes poker or hookers, pot and vodka... and now gunning for no deposit bonuses is what unites us.

Vijayaram played outstanding the whole tournament. Probably good at poker and not great, but I don't think anyone was going to beat him except Jeff Rossiter who had a massive chip advantage. Rossiter played like a extremely tight puzzy at the final table and got punished by a finish 4th place.As an Indian,im proud of this guy..
