Aussie Millions Main Event Hones in on New Record; Former Final Tablist Richard Ashby Bags Big

Niveau 7 : 300/600, 100 ante

The 2019 Aussie Millions Main Event is tantalisingly poised heading into Day 2 after 364 players entered on Day 1c, leaving the tournament just three players short of equalling the record field set twelve months ago.

Late registration remains open for one more level when play resumes tomorrow, and with recent years attracting anywhere from three to 13 new entries, the figure of 800 looks within reach.

It was a case of déjà vu with the Day 1c chip leader, with Cole Swannack bagging 208,200, just over 10,000 chips more than he managed when bagging the Day 1b chip lead last year. With two cashes under his belt this year in Aussie Millions side events, he'll be aiming to banish memories of 2018 where he failed to make the money.

Also bagging big in 1c was Pim De Goede (187,100), 2007 Aussie Millions Main Event seventh-place finisher Richard Ashby (180,000), Ben Lai (153,000), Ben Wu (140,100) and Sosia Jiang (139,200).

Other notables through to Day 2 include Tobias Ziegler, Dara O'Kearney, Maria Ho, Michael Soyza, Ana Marquez, Thomas Muehloecker, Martijn Gerrits, Dominik Nitsche, and Terminator Champion Ioannis Angelou-Konstas.

Shane Warne Shuffle Up and Deal
Former cricket star Shane Warne administered the shuffle up and deal

Shortly after former international cricketer, Shane Warne announced 'Shuffle up and Deal,' there was a cry of "Seat open" as Julien Martini's aces were cracked by the straight of Weiming Yu. Warne would later join him in busting on Day 1c.

Former champions Ami Barer and Shurane Vijayaram were both in attendance, but unfortunately both would bust midway through the day, Vijayaram losing out fives against ace-jack, and Barer losing a flip with ace-king against fives.

It was better news for defending champion, AU$25,000 Challenge runner-up and AU$50,000 Challenge champion Toby Lewis. Seemingly the man to beat this week in Melbourne, Lewis will join fellow former champions Tyron Krost and David Gorr in Day 2.

Other players from last year's final table enjoyed mixed fortunes, with Stefan Huber busting but Mike Del Vecchio making it through to Day 2 with an above-average stack.

Players to bust on Day 1c included Kitty Kuo, Gautam Dhingra, former AU$25,000 Challenge champion Alexander Trevallion, Michael Addamo, Artur Koren, Kristen Bicknell, Natalie Teh, AU$25,000 Challenge winner Rainer Kempe and Yevgeniy Timoshenko.

For the players advancing, they will be part of the 425 players returning for Day 2 which gets underway at 12:30 pm on Wednesday. Stay tuned to PokerNews for continued coverage of what looks like being another record-breaking Aussie Millions Main Event.

Swannack Takes the Lead on 1c

Niveau 7 : 300/600, 100 ante

While David Wu lost some chips towards the end of the day while Pim De Goede, Richard Ashby and Cole Swannack emerged at the top of the counts.

Swannack recalled a big pot on his previous table when he three-bet the button with ace-king and called a four-bet to 15,000. Swannack floated a ten-high flop and check-called all the way when an ace and blank river followed. He was good with top pair and top kicker, as his opponent only had pocket sevens.

Swannack already topped the counts on Day 1b in the previous year but failed to cash in the 2018 Aussie Millions Main Event. He will certainly try to avoid the same fate for this year.

The full counts and seat draw for Day 2 will be published when the PokerNews team receives them and a recap of today's action is to follow.

Late Knockout for Huntly

Niveau 7 : 300/600, 100 ante

When the clock was stopped, Dennis Huntly ended up in the center of the action on his table and faced a near-identical short stack with {A-Hearts}{10-Hearts} versus {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}. The {A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} flop was a sweat, but Huntly improved to a full house thanks to the {A-Spades} turn. The {4-Hearts} came on the river and that secured the pot for the Aussie.

Lewis Open-Folds Queens

Niveau 7 : 300/600, 100 ante

One player opened and John Duggan three-bet to 4,200 in the next position. Toby Lewis then four-bet to 12,000. It folded back around to the initial player who folded and Duggan four-bet enough to put Lewis all in.

Lewis pulled his best 'Grumpy Cat' impression at this turn of events, and took his time with his decision before eventually open-folding {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds} with around a quarter of an hour left in the day.

Gupta Takes From Ho

Niveau 7 : 300/600, 100 ante

Maria Ho checked to Ashish Gupta on a {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}{3-Clubs} flop who bet 1,400. A third player folded before Ho called.

The turn was the {2-Diamonds} and Ho check-called 3,300. The river was the {8-Hearts}. Ho check-called 9,000 and Gupta showed {2-Clubs}{2-Spades} for a full house.

Ho re-checked her hand, flashing a picture card - it wasn't clear whether or not it was a jack - before mucking.

No Day 2 for Timoshenko

Niveau 7 : 300/600, 100 ante

Ioannis Angelou Konstas flat-called a raise to 1,200 and Yevgeniy Timoshenko jammed his short stack in from two seats over. The initial raiser folded and Konstas snap-called with {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}. Timoshenko only had the {A-Clubs}{3-Clubs} and found no miracle double.

One German Down; One Up

Niveau 7 : 300/600, 100 ante

Tobias Ziegler called the shove of a short stack with {A-Diamonds}{J-Spades} and faced {Q-Diamonds}{J-Spades}. The {K-Spades}{10-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop was a sweat, but the {5-Diamonds} turn and {6-Hearts} river were blanks.

While Ziegler added some chips, fellow countryman Gereon Sowa busted over on table 10. In a battle of the blinds, Sowa had a flip with {10-Spades}{10-Hearts} versus {A-Spades}{K-Hearts} and two kings appeared on the flop. The river brought a fourth spade for the nutflush of the small blind, sending Sowa to the rail.
