Our congratulations go to Daniel Mayoh from Australia who has become the first winner of the Aussie Millions 2019 by winning event 2, the $2,500 H.O.R.S.E.
He overcame a field of 54 to take home the first prize of AUD$ 29,120.
In only his 2nd Aussie Millions event, he came out on top after the final 3 agreed a deal and also wins an ANTON Jewellery Championship Ring.
“It’s been a lot of fun,” Mayoh said. “I feel very blessed and very lucky. I think all of us were all in and drawing at some point of the day, myself included. This was a very tough final table – any of the seven of us had the skills to win it.”
Srdjan Brkicfinished 3rd at this event in 2014, he bettered that here with a runners-up spot and AUD$27,500 in prize money.
H.O.R.S.E tournaments are a real test of poker skills as they involved 5 very different versions of poker, mostly – as in this case – at Limit as opposed to No Limit. They are made up of Hold’em, Omaha Hi-Lo, Razz, Seven-Card Stud and Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo.
Other players to make the money included Timothy Marsters, Lee Nelson and the only non-Australian on the final table, Michael Moore.
Final table positions were as follows:
|Place||Name||Country||Payout (AUD)||Payout (USD)|
|4||Michael Moore||United States||$13,365||$9,606|
|5||Billy ‘The Croc’ Argyros||Australia||$9,720||$6,986|
*denotes a 3 way deal which saw Marsters guaranteed AUD$26,000, Brkic AUD$25,000 and Mayoh AUD$24,000 with AUD$5,500 extra for the winner and AUD$2,500 for 2nd place.
