The Crown Resorts in Melbourne is a host to the 2020 Edition of Aussie Millions with an impressive A$10,600 Main Event which is currently underway. The Main Event clocked in 820 entries in total, missing the last year’s mark by a few. The chip leader Jordan Tentori, with a stack of 439,700 led 158 players to Day 3. The top 88 places finished ITM, who profited from the A$8,200,000 prize pool, smashing the initial guarantee. Ize Bourne became the unfortunate bubble boy of the tournament, finishing in the 89th place, the final unpaid position when his eights and fives couldn’t dominate the trips flopped by Sergio Aido.
Germany’s Nino Ullmann rose on Day 3, acquiring the biggest stack of 1,497,000, followed by Indian player Rishabh Vekaria bagging 1,380,000 in chips along with Manig Loeser with 1,355,000 in chips rounding up the tip 3 stacks. The field also included the likes of Erik Seidel, Nick Pupillo, Fabian Quoss and so on progressing to Day 4.
