  1. Vincent Wan has been a regular at the Crown Casino in Melbourne for nearly two decades. In that time he has come to become a frequent face in the high stakes cash games and has even managed to win the Royal Flush jackpot on two occasions. On Friday, he capped all of that by winning the 2020 Aussie Millions Main Event title after an epic 15-hour long final table that included a heads-up battle that lasted longer than The Irishman and had nothing other than the trophy at stake. [ptable zone=“Global Poker Article Ad”][ptable zone=“GG Poker”][ptable zone=“BetMGM NJ”] The seven players who returned to action on Friday played for over two hours before the first elimination. Nino Ullmann raised from the UTG+1 with [poker card="qs"][poker card="th"], Gareth Pepper called from the hijack with [poker card="kc"][poker card="kh"], and Nicolas Malo defended the big blind with [poker card="td"][poker card="8c"]. The [poker card="jc"][poker card="9h"][poker card="8s"] flop gave Ullmann the nut straight. Malo and Ullmann both checked and Pepper bet 400,000. Malo moved all in for 790,000 and Ullmann came over the top for 1,325,000 all in. Pepper folded. The turn was the [poker card="3s"] and the [poker card="ks"] completed the board to eliminate Malo in seventh. A little over an hour later, another player was sent to the rail. Pepper raised to 220,000 from the hijack with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kc"] before Oliver Weis moved all in for 2,190,000. Pepper called. The board ran out [poker card="9h"][poker card="8s"][poker card="3h"][poker card="4d"][poker card="ac"] to give Pepper the pot and end Weis' run in sixth place. The five remaining players played for four hours and took a one-hour dinner break before the next player was sent to the rail. Wan raised to 325,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"] and Erik Seidel pushed all in for 2,875,000 from the button with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ts"]. Wan called. The [poker card="js"][poker card="th"][poker card="2c"] flop gave both players a pair. Seidel wasn't able to make trips throug the [poker card="2d"] turn or [poker card="4d"] river and the Poker Hall of Famer was eliminated in fifth. Another hour passed without an elimination before Ullmann got involved in another confrontation with a much different result. Ngoc Tai Hoang called from the small blind with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"] and Ullmann checked the big blind with [poker card="td"][poker card="7s"]. The [poker card="tc"][poker card="7d"][poker card="5h"] flop gave Ullmann control. Hoang bet 300,000 and Ullmann called. Hoang then checked the [poker card="jd"] and Ullmann bet 800,000. Hoang moved all in and Ullmann called all in. The [poker card="5d"] river gave Hoang a better two pair and sent Ullmann to the rail with a fourth place finish. The final three players then entered into chop discussions which got a little contentious. After running the ICM numbers, Pepper wanted his payout bumped up to an even $1 million. Wan agreed but was insistent that he would get the trophy, despite trailing Hoang at the time. Crown Tournament Director Joel Williams informed them that they had to play for the trophy. Negotiations continued and Wan pitched new numbers that Hoang felt was unfair. "It is fair, because I'm definitely better than you. I've been a professional poker player for like 20 years and he's been playing for like 10 years as well," Wan said. "This is like your first cash. You have like a $5K cash a $2K cash, I saw. It's okay. I know." Hoang explained he's had other cashes not listed online while campaigning for a more favorable payout. "I can see the way you play. You don't," Wan said. The three finally came to terms on a deal that saw each of them secure a seven-figure payday. Wan and Hoang each earned $1,318,000 with Pepper taking home $1,000,000. With the deal in place, Pepper lasted just 20 more minutes before busting. Pepper moved all in for 5,010,000 from the small blind with [poker card="9h"][poker card="2c"] and Wan called from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="3s"]. The board ran out [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"][poker card="8d"][poker card="9h"][poker card="7c"] to send Pepper packing and put the tournament into heads up play. That pot gave Wan the heads-up lead over Hoang. Wan had 13,665,000 to Hoang's 11,045,000 and despite Wan's insistence he was a superior player, the pair played heads-up for nearly 4.5 hours before Wan claimed victory. Hoang was left desperately short after losing with [poker card="ac"][poker card="qc"] to [poker card="ad"][poker card="9c"] and [poker card="ah"][poker card="qc"] to [poker card="ac"][poker card="th"]. There was yet one more chance for him to get it in good with an unfortunate result. Hoang shoved his last 2,200,000 in the middle with [poker card="as"][poker card="3h"] and Wan called with [poker card="tc"][poker card="9h"]. The [poker card="js"][poker card="9s"][poker card="6s"] flop gave Wan middle pair and Hoang couldn't catch up after the [poker card="jd"] turn or [poker card="td"] river and was eliminated in second place giving Wan the title as 2020 AUssie Millions Main Event champion. 2020 Aussie Millions Main Event Payouts Vincent Wan - A$1,318,000 ($907,196 US) Ngoc Tai Hoang - A$1,318,000 ($907,196 US) Gareth Pepper - A$1,000,000 ($688,31 US) Nino Ullmann - A$480,160 ($330,501 US) Erik Seidel - A$378,660 ($260,637 US) Oliver Weis - A$307,820 ($211,877 US) Nicolas Malo - A$240,080 ($165,250 US)
  2. On Sunday night in Melbourne, Australia, Bryn Kenney pulled off a feat that most tournament poker players would think is impossible. Kenney won the 2019 Aussie Millions Main Event and didn't eliminate a single player from the final table - including the runner-up, Mike Del Vecchio. Kenney, Del Vecchio, and third place finisher Andrew Hinrichsen agreed to a deal that awarded Kenney the title. The deal, which included Kenney getting the biggest share of the prize money, ended the tournament with no further hands played. The final table took just over eight hours to complete included a show of dominance from Andrew Hinrichsen. It took a little over an hour before the seven-handed final table saw an elimination. From the button, Hinrichsen raised to 140,000 with [poker card="as"][poker card="js"] before Hamish Crawshaw re-raised to 575,000 with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qd"]. Hinrichsen announced he was all in and Crawshaw called all in. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="kh"][poker card="3h"] flop moved Hinrichsen in front with top pair and neither the [poker card="2h"] turn or [poker card="2s"] river were of any help and the 26-year-old New Zealander was eliminated in seventh place. Hinrichsen went back to work in whittling down the field a little over an hour later in another all-in preflop spot. Hinrichsen raised to 200,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="jd"][poker card="tc"] before Gyeong Byeong Lee moved all in for 320,000 from the button with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kh"]. Hinrichsen called and then moved ahead after the [poker card="td"][poker card="4c"][poker card="4h"] flop. Lee could only watch as the [poker card="qh"] turn and [poker card="8c"] river offered him no relief and he was eliminated in sixth. Another hour passed by before the next elimination and this time, Hinrichsen wasn't involved. From UTG, Matthew Wakeman raised 160,000 with [poker card="qd"][poker card="qh"] and Clinton Taylor re-raised to 300,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="ad"] from the button. The blinds folded and Wakeman shoved all in for 2,670,000 and Taylor called. The board ran out [poker card="jh"][poker card="8s"][poker card="7h"][poker card="9c"][poker card="4c"] to give Taylor the pot and send Wakeman to the rail in fifth place. Over the next 23 hands, things went south for Taylor and a confrontation with Hinrichsen ended his misery. Action folded to Taylor on the button and he moved all in for 1,905,000 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kd"] and Hinrichsen called from the big blind with [poker card="9d"][poker card="9h"]. The [poker card="td"][poker card="8h"][poker card="6c"] flop didn't improve Taylor and after the [poker card="7d"] hit the turn, Taylor was officially eliminated in fourth. The [poker card="ah"] river was a meaningless needle for Taylor. Thanks to his work eliminating three of the last four players, Hinrichsen began three-handed play with just over 60% of the chips in play. Over the course of the next 4.5 hours and 109 hands of play, Hinrichsen saw his fortunes change dramatically and he ended up with just 25% of the chips in play when the final three players began discussing a chop. It took just a few moments for them to agree to an adjusted payout that resulted in not playing another hand. Thanks to one of the final hands of play, Del Vecchio actually had a slight lead over Kenney but Kenney was still able to negotiate a deal that paid him the most and awarded him the official title of Main Event champ. Final Table Payouts Bryn Kenney - $1,272,598 AUD Mike Del Vecchio - $1,272,162 AUD Andrew Hinrichsen - $1,097,739 AUD Clinton Taylor - $483,000 AUD Matthew Wakeman - $380,300 AUD Gyeong Byeong Lee - $309,000 AUD Hamish Crawshaw - $242,000 AUD
