Everyone has been talking about the the super high roller event with a massive buy-in of $250,000 at this year's Aussie Millions. First it was meant to be a heads-up event, then an 8-game mixed event, and finally the tournament crew decided that it was going to be a single table no-limit hold'em tournament. Not less than 20 players signed up for the tournament and created a prize pool of stunning $5 million dollars. The field included poker gods such as Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan, John Juanda, Daniel "jungleman12" Cates and Annette Obrestad.
After many hours of play, it ended up being Erik Seidel and Sam Trickett who played heads-up poker. Trickett had a big lead at first, but after 45 minutes of play Seidel was suddenly in the lead. Trickett had lost his focus at this point and a few hands later he decided to try his luck by moving all in and double up his stack. Seidel called with top-pair and Trickett didn't get any help by the turn and river card. Erik Seidel took home the first place prize of $2,500,000.
