Ross Grammer wins the Crown Poker Championship

The Crown Poker Championship saw 345 entries for the AUD1,650 Main Event, creating a prize pool of AUD517,500. The Crown Casino in Melbourne hosted the event, along with several others as part of their Crown Poker Championship. 

While most players who reached the final table of the Main Event had at least a few live cashes already notched up, the two eventual finalists had a little more experience than most. Mario Doria had just over $245,000 in live cashes before today, while Ross Grammer had just under $190,000. Both players put in a good performance to outlast the field and reach the final table, and seemed well matched in experience and ability when they got to heads up.

The duel for the title lasted over 3 hours, although the players agreed a deal for most of the money during heads up play. It was Ross Grammer who eventually managed to clinch the extra cash and trophy after several all in swings between the players.
