Aussie Millions Maint Event is now down to 14 players. Chris Chronis (chip leader day 1) had more than 800,000 chips just a few hands ago and now he's suddently out of the tournament. Also most of the pros are out, Anette Obrestad, Patrik Antonius, Michael Tureniec, Joe Hachem, Scotty Nguyen to mention a few. Is it going to be a final table with mostly unknown players?

The answer to that question is probably yes. Not many famous poker players with the routine and expericene to play a final table comfortable and relaxed in a big tournament are now left. This leaves the remaining 14 players with a great chance of taking home the first prize of AUD 2.000.000 (USD 1,300,000).

Chris chronis was a bit of a favorite to take home the tournament with not so many notable players left in the tournament (if you ask me). Chris had over 800,000 chips and played great but then all of a sudden he was out. Here is an example how a few hands can change everything in a poker tournament.

Hand 1:
Christian Heich raised to 30k from under the gun and Chris calls from small blind. The flop shows 8Diamond5Spade7Club. Chronis raise 50,000 and Heich calls. Turn is JHeart and Chronis checks. Heich then raise 100,000 and Chronis calls. A 10Spade falls on the river and Chris checks again and get a 150,000 raise from heich that he decide to fold against. Chris Chronis is now down to 600,000 chips.

Hand 2:
Chris raised 30k from late position and was called by the small blind - Christian Heich. Steward Scott then re-raised from big blind to 100k. Chris and Heich calls.
The pot is not up to 300,000 when the flop 8Heart3SpadeQClub hit the table. Heich is the first one to act, he checks. Scott raise 250,000 and Chronis instantly goes all-in with his remaining 550,000. Heich folds and Scott calls straight away.

Chronis shows QDiamond10Club
Scott shows KHeartKClub

Turn 6 Heart, river 7Spade

Scott wins with a pair of kings and sends Chris Chronis, the Australian with the dream of being the first ever Australian to win Aussie million packing.

Scott is now the chip leader of the tournament with 1,800,000 chips. But still Scott cant relax since he's closly followed by Zach Fellows (1,740,000) and Christian Heich (1,480,000). And for everyone that hoped for a girl to take home Aussie Millions, dont worry! Annica Ivert from Sweden is still in the tournament with 985,000 chips on 6th place.

Chip count for the 14 remaining players
Stewart Scott 1,800,000
Zach Fellows 1,740,000
Christian Heich 1,480,000
Rajkumar Ramakrishnan 1,290,000
Sam Capra 1,100,000
Annica Ivert 985,000
Dixon Ruecker 980,000
Tino Lechich 930,000
Peter Rho 880,000
Barny Boatman 750,000
Grant Levy 630,000
Richard Ashby 455,000
Elliott Smith 420,000
Zach Gruneberg 400,000

The fact that they are unknown to us doesnt necesarily mean that they are bad poker player, as a matter of fact, they hve taken down some of the good players we know so!
I hope the final table has some nice level of poker playing
