Aussie Millions continues to hold tournaments despite the fires across the Australian continent. The casino that hosts this poker festival collected $5 000 000 for fight against the forest fires.
The tournament for AU$25 000 finished yesterday. It collected 169 entries and its prize pool reached the mark of AU$4 000 000.
Farid Jattin is considered one of the most profitable players in Colombia, and yesterday he confirmed this strong status. Farid started the game at the final table as a chip leader and knocked out the opponents one by one.
Steve O'Dwyer was one step away from the heads-up. His winnings in the live tournaments reached the mark of $30 000 000. At the moment, the Irish poker player ranks eighth in All Time Money List.
In this tournament, Steve took the 3rd place and got $322 000. After the Irishman left the tournament, only two participants remained in the game: Farid Jattin and George Wolff.
Farid called George his poker coach and said that he just couldn’t play against him. They decided to share prize money and Farid got $678 000, while George earned $566 000.
