The 2013 Aussie Millions Main Event is going full steam ahead, and now only the final 18 players remain. Currently leading the way is Dan Shak with 2.6 million in chips.
Also, still in the hunt is Finnish high-stakes legend Patrik Antonius, who has currently over 1.2 million in chips.
Some chip counts from the Aussie Millions Main Event:
1. Dan Shak - 2,600,000
2. Ang Pangleng - 2,035,000
3. Mervin Chan - 1,420,000
4. David Yan - 1,300,000
5. Patrik Antonius - 1,240,000
All of the remaining 18 players have now secured at least AU$55,000 payday.
Phil Ivey on the other hand has now busted out of the tournament. Ivey finished in 30th place and picked up AU$30,000 for his finish.
That's however peanuts compared to what he has won on Full Tilt Poker over the last 24 hours. Ivey is currently up over $600,000 (nick "Polarizing").
Ivey and Antonius didn't participate in the Aussie Millions AU$250K Challenge due to their deep runs in the main event. The Super High Roller event is now down to the final five players with AU$2m going to the eventual winner.
