The Race to the Money on Day 3 of the 2020 Aussie Millions Main Event

Jordan Tentori

As of 12.30 p.m. local time, the poker room of the Crown Casino complex in Melbourne will once again be filled with a special buzz in the air and at the tables when the remaining 158 players out of 820 entries return to their seats to unbag their chips for Day 3 of the 2020 Aussie Millions Main Event.

Only the top 88 spots in the second-biggest Aussie Millions Main Event ever will receive a portion of the A$8,200,000 prize pool and the money bubble will burst throughout the scheduled seven 90-minute levels.

Leading the field into the day is Jordan Tentori, one of three players with more than 400k in chips, and he returns to a stack of 439,700. Second in chips is Shao Liu with 410,000 and the final spot on the podium belongs to Gareth Pepper with 400,400. Other big stacks include such familiar names as Fabian Quoss (372,400), Jeff Madsen (356,400), Paawan Bansal (355,800), Quan Zhou (345,900), Matthew Wantman (343,000), Scott Margereson (328,900) and Pete Chen (294,000).

The only remaining former Aussie Millions champion and 2019 winner, Bryn Kenney, has an above-average stack of 186,000 and fellow 2019 finalist Mike Del Vecchio follows not far behind with 164,500. Both Tony Hachem (161,100) and Anthony Hachem (97,000) also remain in the mix and will aim to secure at least A$15,580 for their efforts.

Blinds will recommence at 1,200-2,400 with a big blind ante of 2,400 and there will be a 15-minute break after each 90-minute level, as well as a 75-minute dinner break after the fourth level of the day. Bagging and tagging is expected to take place around 1.30 a.m. local time. By then, the field may already be very close to the final 36 hopefuls, at which time the tournament will redraw to a six-max format.

Stay tuned to find out who gets one step closer to becoming the next Aussie Millions Main Event champion right here on PokerNews.

Seidel Takes From Big Stack Pepper

Niveau 13 : 1,200/2,400, 2,400 ante

Action was on a {6-Spades}{5-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} board with big stack Gareth Pepper - one of three players with over 400,000 in chips at the start of the day - betting 18,000 into a pot of 35,000 from the big blind.

His opponent was Erik Seidel who called from the button. Pepper turned over {a-Hearts}{4-Spades} and Seidel studied the board before revealing {a-Clubs}{9-Hearts} for a pair of nines.

Tentori Busts Razavi

Sam Razavi
Sam Razavi

The first two casualties on Day 3 are Brody Furness and Sam Razavi, and the latter saw his hopes of a Main Event cash in Melbourne vanish in brutal fashion.

Jordan Tentori was to his right and held the biggest stack in the room at the start, the Aussie was even in the exact same seat that propelled him into the lead last night. And the run-good of Tentori continued as he clashed with Razavi in a battle of premium pocket pairs.

Sam Razavi: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Jordan Tentori: {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

The {q-Spades}{10-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop gave Tentori top set and the {5-Hearts} turn and {10-Spades} river runout failed to keep Razavi in contention.

Edwards Down to a Three-Outer

Niveau 13 : 1,200/2,400, 2,400 ante

Shan Huang opened for 5,200 in middle position and Luke Edwards jammed for 36,800 on his left.

"I wish the big blind was here," Huang said with a laugh. "Maybe I don't open this hand. Now, I'm in a difficult situation."

He did the math out loud then decided the price was good enough and slapped in some chips to call. He turned over {k-Spades}{j-Spades} but was disappointed to see {k-Clubs}{q-Hearts} from Edwards. However, the {2-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{4-Hearts}{6-Clubs} board shipped him the pot courtesy of the flopped jack. Edwards took the beat in stride and headed out.

Wells Doubles Through Stojanovski

Niveau 13 : 1,200/2,400, 2,400 ante

David Wells was all-in for 33,000 with the {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and Peco Stojanovski had that dominated with {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}.

Wells was ready to go and stood up from his chair on the {k-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} flop but sat back down when the {9-Hearts} appeared on the turn. A blank {10-Diamonds} on the river changed nothing anymore and Wells doubled to send Stojanovski further in the danger zone.

Zarb Four-Bet Crams

Niveau 13 : 1,200/2,400, 2,400 ante

After an open on the button to 5,200 and a three-bet from small blind Michael Behnert to 19,000, action was on big blind Corey Zarb. He thought about a minute then moved all of his chips into the middle. The opener quickly mucked, and Behnert didn't need long before opting to preserve his remaining 61,000 or so.
