The 2012 Aussie Millions Main Event came to an end this weekend after only 7 hours of play on the final table. It was the Melbourne local Oliver Speidel who took home the tournament for $1,600,000. A well deserved win for a man who survived a field of 659 players.

Final table results:

1st Oliver Speidel $1,600,000
2nd Kenneth Wong $1,000,000
3rd Mile Krstanoski $610,000
4th Mohamad Kowssarie $405,000
5th Patrick Healy $300,000
6th Bjorn Li $230,000
7th Yann Dion $170,000

Super High Roller

Phil Ivey has gotten the best possible start to the new year. First he finished 12 in the Aussie MIllions Main Even for $100,000, then he took down the $250,000 Super High Roller event for amazing 2,000,000 AUD. Quite impressive since the tournament attracted players such as Sam Trickett, Tom Dwan, Jason Mercier, Sorel Mizzi, and last year's champion Erik Seidel.

Final table results:

1 Phil Ivey A$2,000,000
2 Patrik Antonius A$1,200,000
3 Gus Hansen A$800,000

Well, with this he can pay a little part of the debt he has with FTP.

Oh no, i forget that maybe he will lose the 2M$ playing craps...

What a nice month for Phil Ivey. This lets him very comfortable for the rest of the year! Keeping this way, we may be better getting ready to watch a hand full of players ending 2012 with a profitable balance above $5 million! They just have to keep the same rhythm…

Thats definately a really nice win for Phil Ivey. I always considered Phil one of the best poker players out there.
In the same time i'm always trying to separate his poker skills from his actions on ftp. I'm sure justice will be made sooner or later.

they all can consider themselves lucky because i had no time to go to australia to take part in those tournaments- no ivey would have any chance against me. i guess there is still time to prove my worth this year, probably since ivey has some cash now i can ask him for a heads-up duel at the respectable stakes of $0.01/0.02

Phil Ivey is back after FT had closed, and his back in force now....I really like this player

mishu2009, this guy has a big part of responsability in the failure of FTP and in the failure of some offers to sell a part of FTP to inverstor after FTP close. Still like you?
