On Monday, the first of two Aussie Million High Roller tournaments concluded. A total of 21 players signed up for the tournament which had a buy-in of $100,000, and only 1 player, Andrew Robl, decided to use his re-entry.

Congrats to Andrew for his win, those extra 100k that he spent were indeed money well spent lol

I didn't know that such a high roller event will take place, we should see some interesting action on the 250k one Big Smile

Usually I talk bad about the option of re-entry or rebuying in a tourney, because that will put the player in disadvantage when comparing to the opponents. The re-entry will be spending double the money of the others and he will also be feeling the weight of that responsibility on his shoulders, as he will have an increased responsibility to win. It’s a bit like being loosing and keep playing to try to compensate the lost. Only players who deal very well with pressure should do this. Looks like Andrew Robl is this type of player!
