2010 Aussie Millions

Crown Casino in Melbourne has released the schedule for the 2010 Aussie Millions to be played January 14th to January 31st 2010.

20 events

A total of 20 events are to be played during the Aussie Millions. Players will be able to find 5 events with a buy in as little as $500AUD and the main event will have an entry fee of $10.000 AUD with an estimated first prize of $2.500.000AUD.

During the tournament series the players will not lack the opportunity to find high buy in tournaments as a total of four events has a buy in of $10.000 and on top of this the recurring monster $100.000 challenge where we expect to see defending champion David Steick once again take on some of the worlds best poker players. Last years $100.000 challenge had 23 players in it and that is surely a record to be beaten.
