Sam Ingham Leads DAY 1 A of the Aussie Millions 2017

Written By: Maya Michaels | January 24, 2017 | Posted In Poker News

The Aussie Millions is of course one of the top poker events yet it is not a integral part of any of the major events, and it has been underway for the past few days.  During Sundays games played at the Crown Casino which is located in Melbourne the Main Event 10 Thousand dollar buy in started the very first of a 3 day event for those international poker players to dive right into.

As the registration for this tournament lasting level eight of the current tournament, many of the players were quite relaxed when it came to making their way to their perspective tables.  With the added fact that there are only 7 levels of playing which last ninety minutes per level for each day one game, the pace of the players registering for the tournament was very slow going. 

As the shuffle up and deal was called the floor was covered with some very top notch players as well as some of those celebrities that have a bit of poker skill.  These included players such as the former WSOP Europe champion Obrestad and actress Jennifer tilly.  By the time the final level that was for day 1 arrived a total of 212 poker players had registered for this event.  This is a very significant number due to the fact that it is the very first time that this tournament has topped the 200 mark since the year of 2011.   

Here are the top winners of Day1

First place – player Sam Ingham with a total winning of $160,100.00

Second place – player Pascal Pflock with a total winning of $115,000.00

Third place – player Patrick Crivell with a total winning of $110,000.00

Fourth place – player Sam Higgs with a total winning of $107,900.00
