Aussie Millions Main Event: Ari Angel wins the title, Tony Dunst runner up

Coming into this final table, Alan 'Ari' Engel was the commanding chip leader, and had over $2.2 million in live cashes under his belt, along with a number of distinguished years in the online world, which included a SCOOP title in 2014. It always looked to be a difficult task for anyone to wrestle this title away from him, but Tony Dunst had a large stack, and probably stood the best chance of anyone. Nothing at the final table dispelled those facts, as those two players grew stronger, and the challengers fell one by one.

Samantha Abernathy put up a very good fight with her medium sized stack, managing an admirable 3rd place finish, for $625,000. She now holds the record of best ever finish by a female player in the Aussie Millions Main Event.

In the end though, it always looked likely to be Dunst and Engel reaching heads up, given their experience, and the chip stacks of both opponents when play began.

Heads up was no easy procession to the title for Engel, as it took another 4 hours to conclude the event. In the end, Dunst hero called a river shove to bring things to an end. His opponent had turned top pair, and that was enough to bring him the trophy, and the AU$1,600,000 in what is his best ever career score. The Canadian bested a field of 731 players to win the title. Tony Dunst picked up AU$1,000,000.
