Day 3 of the Main Event of the Aussie Millions, the most prestigious poker event in the Southern Hemisphere held at The Crown Casino with a buy-in of A$10,000, ended with 36 players still in the running.
The minimum amount these runners will receive for making it at the top 36 is A$30,000 with first place receiving a massive A$1.6 Million.
Here is a quick look at what’s happening:
Players left in the Field: 36 players are still in the running and all are assured a minimum of A$30,000.
Average Stack: 603,138 chips
Mustapha Kanit: The Italian player at the top of his country’s all-time money list is once again chip leader going into Day 4. Unlike what happened in Day 2, Kanit was on a roll winning almost every hand and accumulated a total of 2.318 Million which puts him back on the top of the pack. He is followed by Marc Macdonnell from Ireland with 1,078,000 chips.
Australians represented at the top: Taking the place of 3rd, 4th and 5th in chip counts are Aussie players Luke Roberts (1,073,000 chips), Michael Weiss (1,000,000 chips), and Jeffrey Rossiter (995,000 chips) respectively. Jeffrey Rossiter is 2nd in Australia’s all-time money list.
Jennifer Tilly: Chip leader at the start of Day 2, Tilly ended Day 3 at 12th place with 704,000 in chips
Feder Holz: Holz is still in the Main Event with 539,000. He would have been a few places above Tilly’s chip count if he didn’t lose almost 200k in chips to Jeffrey Rossiter.
The Fallen: Unfortunately, Tony Dunst and Eric Seidel didn’t make it through Day 3 but we will definitely still see them in upcoming events over the weekend.
Live streaming of Day 4 will be available on Twitch with Jason Somerville commentating. Day 4 will start at 12:30pm with tables 6-handed moving forward. Play will continue until the final table.
