Last Sunday, after 3 days of play, the opening event ($1,000 NLH) of Aussie Millions got a winner, Brendon Rubie (a well-known figure in the land down under thanks to several cashes in major poker tournaments). Rubie played very well on the final table and had a 2-1 chip lead when heads-up began. His opponent, Scott Wilson, fought really well though and didn't give away any chips for free. After some time of fighting back and forth, Rubie managed to get Wilson to believe that he was weak in a hand that he had flopped 2 pairs. After Wilson made the call on the river and mucked his hand, Rubie went up to his friends and started celebrating. 

But it didn't take long until he got to know that Wilson actually had a few chips left. Rubie apologized and sat back down at the table. Wilson, who only had a few big blinds left, had no other option than to go all in. After a few double-ups for Wilson it seemed like the game was far from over. But Wilson ran-out of luck a few hands later when he moved all in on the flop 10Spade4DiamondQSpade with 4Club3Club and Rubie called with QClubJDiamond. The turn and river was to no help for Wilson who received AUD125,00 for his second place. Brendon Rubie received AUD200,000 for his victory and an Aussie Millions gold ring.

agreed always nice to see local claiming the scalps of everyone else- something for crowd to cheer about. really i find it hard to remember when someone won without the help of luck- if cards do not run, then no skill is gonna help you out, pity but true. ah well thats poker i guess

nice win, but did not see how the final hand played seemed to be rather weak, short yet excellent results pro kid, 200,000 is not every day you get

It must have been an strange situation to get up and start celebrating with friends and then being called to sit again because the game wasn’t over. And after watching his opponent recovering with “a few double-ups” like the text says, I believe Brendon Rubie may have shacked a bit. Good for him, things went out just like he has predicted.
