German super high roller Ole Schemion is poised to add yet another big buy-in title to his resume.
Schemion is the massive chip leader in the Aussie Millions $100k Challenge with 1.8 million chips.
The rest of the final table is comprised of Jason Mo, Erik Seidel, Justin Bonomo, Dani Stern, Richard Yong, Scott Seiver and recent $25k Challenge winner Alex Trevallion.
Schemion has $6.7 million in lifetime live tournament earnings including final table appearances at the EPT Barcelona €50k Super High Roller, EPT Grand Final $100k Super High Roller and PCA $100k Super High Roller. He also won the Aria $100k Super High Roller outright for $1 million this summer.
He’ll be looking to add A$1.8 million in this year’s Aussie Millions $100k thanks to an impressive field of 70 entrants.
The final table won’t play out until Saturday so everyone gets a chance to take part in the Main Event.
Here are the complete chip counts to start the final table:
- 1. Ole Schemion - 1,888,000
- 2. Jason Mo - 1,150,000

Cates Looking Dangerous in Early Stages of Main Event
Dan “jungleman12” Cates is near the top of the chip counts after two starting days in the 2015 Aussie Millions Main Event.
Cates amassed 168,100 chips and is only trailing Ian Wassell who built a stack of 229,500 on Day 1b.
Mustapha Kanit (130,900), Bryan Huang (120,700) and Casey Kastle (89,500) were also in the top 10 chip counts after Day 1b came to a close.
They’ll join Day 1a chip leaders Jan Suchanek (163,400), Joakim Backlund (148,900) and defending champ Ami Barer (142,900) on Day 2.
Of course before that begins we still have Day 1c set for tomorrow with big names Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius all expected to take a seat in the tournament.
Action starts at 12:30 tomorrow.
