The Aussie Millions AU$250,000 Challenge attracted 46 entries this year. Phil Ivey was one of the players who fired only one $250k bullet and he made it to Day 2 with 622k chips (7th place). He then made it to the eigh-handed final table with the second smallest stack (976k), but he played very well and (after several hours of play) made it to heads-up against Isaac Haxton (PokerStars Team Online).

After the Finnish poker pro Patrik Antonius had swept Rui Cao (France) clean in a Triple Draw match last Friday at Full Tilt Poker, Cao suggested that the two should start a $1 million challenge consisting of pot-limit Omaha ($350k match), no-limit hold'em ($350k) and 2-7 triple draw ($300k).

On Wednesday, the challenge kicked off at a $1,500/$3,000 2-7 Triple Draw table at Full Tilt Poker. Cao won $15k in the very first hand of the match and remained in front through out the match. In fact, it only took about 3 hours and 350 hands for him to take $300,000 from Antonius.

There is still no information on when the second match will be played. Let's hope that it won't take too long!
