Koon Bubbles, Tollerene Leads Gangbusters Aussie $100k Final Table
It's shaping up to be one of the most scintillating final tables of the year at the Aussie Millions $100k Challenge.
Now we just have to wait a week to see it.
The final six in the prestigious $100k event at Crown Casino were settled over the weekend with online superstar Ben "Ben86" Tollerene leading a truly elite list of competitors down to the wire.
Jason Mercier, Connor Drinan, Sam Greenwood, Fabian Quoss and Fedor Holz will all join Tollerene in the final six after two days of play and 41 entries took a stab at the event.
Winner of the $25k earlier in the week, Germany's Igor Kurganov even fired five bullets at it himself but couldn't make it to the money. American Jason Koon was the bubble boy early this morning with the rest now guaranteed $281k AUD.
A tidy $1.4m AUD sits up top for the winner, who will have to wait until Saturday to claim the glory as the event pauses for the Main Event to play out this week. Full final table and chip counts:
1. Ben Tollerene 1,522,000
2. Connor Drinan 943,000
3. Jason Mercier 508,000
4. Fabian Quoss 478,000
5. Sam Greenwood 458,000
6. Fedor Holz 192,000
15k Watch Somerville Stream
Even with the week wait the upside for those not actually in Australia right now is we will be able to watch the stream live.
Twitch.tv godfather Jason Somerville is on hand for the entire Aussie Millions this year and streaming live with commentary right through until Feb. 1.
He'll be hosting the $100k final table stream next Saturday local time (Friday the 29th at 7:30 PST) followed shortly after by the Main Event final and the $250k final.
Daily streaming coverage of the Main Event resumes on Wed. local time after a break Tuesday for Australia Day.
Catch up with the first two days of $100k play by re-watching the Somerville stream, which hit 15,000+ viewers yesterday, below:
