2015 Aussie Millions: 30 Players Left, Including Phil Ivey and Ami Barer

Tags: Ami Barer, Andrew Chen, Aussie Millions 2015, Brian Rast, Jonathan Roy, Phil Ivey.
Posted on 30 January 2015 by "T".

The Main Event has been narrowed down from 668 entries to 30 players after 3 intensive days of play at Crown Melbourne. Raiden Kan finished Day 3 with the chip lead (1,775,000), but all eyes will be on defending champion Ami Barer (443k) and two-time AU$250k Challenge winner Phil Ivey (439k) when Day 4 kicks off.

Other notables that will return today include EPT regular Andrew Chen (1,165,00) two-time WSOP winner Brian Rast (1,156,000), and WPT champ Jonathan Roy (467,000).

The plan for Day 4 is to play down to a final table of seven. A large chunk of the AU$6,480,000 prize pool will be up for grabs on the final table, including the AU$1.6 million put aside for the winner.

One can be sure that the remaining part of the tournament will be very thrilling to follow with so many poker pros and so much prize money.

Check back on Monday morning for a final table recap!

Wow, what a list of players left in. Phil Ivey, Brian Rast and defending champion Ami Barer to name just three. All eyes will be on Ivey but i have a sneaking feeling Brian Rast could win

i'll bet Ivey will win!:>

It did not go well for Phil Ivey today and he was knocked out in about 23rd place and since then Kan has also been knocked out and now only 7 players left.The momentum appears to be with the German player Lennart Uphoff but it is all quite close and they all have a decent chance.

it is a shame
Ivey is out
the luck that is involved in poker
really makes it different from other games
the best players don't always win
there is always new people and new winners

The favorite seems to be Raiden Kan, but my favorite is quiet Phil Ivey. I look forward to further reports from this tournament. Awards also arouse the imagination.

Cheers thanks for the update on this tournament was following it a bit as i was interested in what was happening in Australia , i have family in Australia, that is why i am interested in them, anyway enough about me, i just hope Ivey go on to win it he deserves it and he already has a legend status, just hope he keeps it up and no one will dare to question his skill.

It is all finished and after Joel Douaglin was knocked out in third place a deal was negotiated.The winner was Manny Stavropoulus who won the title and pocketed a nice amount of over 1.3 million dollars and the German Lennart Uphoff coming second for 1.2 million. Smile

Ivey is going to win.this is my personal prediction

If the large chunk of the 6,480,000 australian dollars worth of prize pool will be really up for grabs on the final table then they are doing this better than the WSOP Main Event this year, where dozens of unsatisfied players from last year cried it out the ITM % to be more wider so they can say they were succesfull by going home with the 800th place. Such a pity.
