2010 Aussie Millions Schedule release

The Aussie Millions is the sixth biggest tournament of poker in the world and the biggest poker tournament in the southern hemisphere. The 2010 Aussie Millions Schedule has now been released with 20 Offical Events and Daily Satellites! Here you can find the full schedule.

If you want to visit this beautiful country and want to battle against the best australian poker players it may be your chance.

The tournament will run from January the 14th till the 31st, 2010 in Melbourne and expects to have an eight million dollar prize pool, with two million going to the winner.  The Main Event will take place at the Crown Casino Resort – and will run from the 24th January until the 31st January.  The buy-in has been set at 10,500 Australian Dollars.

By the way there will something for everyone. In fact, during the main tournament, about twenty smaller tournaments will take place, including the High Roller tournament – where $100,000 is played in two days – and a HORSE tournament.

In 2009 the game started as a duel between two of the biggest of all, Tom Dwan and Patrik Antonius. But other big names soon joined the game: Jamie Pickering, Andrew Robl, Niki Jedlicka, Phil Laak and … yes … the man … Chris Ferguson, whose total live tournament winnings exceed $7,800,000, as of 2009, and whose 59 WSOP cashes staggering an amazing $4,031,499 crown him 3rd for most all time cashes at the WSOP, just behind Phil Hellmuth and Men Nguyen.

Satellite tournaments offering packages for this event are currently running on several online poker rooms. Don’t miss!
