With more than 450 satellite qualifiers, there was little doubt that the 2019 Aussie A$ 10,600 Millions Main Event wouldn't disappoint and a new record is looming as the 800-entry field of the previous edition is not far off in the dinner break on Day 1c. Thus far, 359 players entered the third and final starting day, which has created a field of 792 entries. The registration remains open for the remainder of the day and the first level of Day 2, and the team at the Crown Casino in Melbourne will very likely be able to confirm a new record attendance soon.

More than 50 players have already been eliminated in the first four levels of the day with such notables as Julien Martini, Jack O'Neill, Didier Guerin, Andrew Hulme, Victor Chong, Andras Nemeth, Kitty Kuo and Gautam Dhingra all among the casualties. Martini lasted all but half an hour when he spiked top set with a pair of aces only for Weiming Yu to send the Frenchman packing with the turned straight.

O'Neill ran with kings into aces and Nemeth was ousted by Ryan Otto, who flopped a full house with jacks. Hulme suffered a deadly blow when he got it in with top two pair against the top pair and top kicker of Sosia Jiang, who immediately improved to the superior two pair on the turn.

Among the big stacks heading into dinner are Korea's Jongwon Yoon (122,000), Ryan Otto (118,750), Tobias Ziegler (90,000), Farid Jattin (83,000) and Joni Joihnikimainen (75,000). All of them would bag an above-average stack at the end of level seven in the early morning hours if they were to keep up their momentum in the remaining three levels.

Defending Main Event champion Toby Lewis was busy taking down the A$ 50,000 Challenge on an unscheduled third day and soon after jumped into the Main Event to head into dinner slightly below the average stack. Further former Aussie Millions champions in contention also include Ami Barer and Shurane Vijayaram.
