Jan Suchanek is making a habit out of bagging up the biggest stack at the 2015 Aussie Millions Main Event. Suchanek, who finished Day 1A with the chip lead, finished Day 2 with 483,900 and once again finds himself on top, looking down at the rest of the field.
Keanu Simpson finished Day 2 with the second biggest stack, 403,000. While Suchanek and Simpson are leading the way, the bigger stories might just be outside of the top ten. Defending champ Ami Barer sits 13th with 318,600 while Phil Ivey isn’t too far off with 278,300. Barer and Ivey aren’t the only notables still in contention. Gary Benson (118,600), Terrence Chan (73,700), Simon Deadman (219,100), Philipp Gruissem (123,100) and WSOP Main Event runner-up Felix Stephensen (222,000) all survived Day 2.
Alexander Trevallion‘s amazing 2015 Aussie Millions run continues. Trevallion, who won the $25,000 Challenge and is at the final table of the $100,000 Challenge, finished Day 2 with 99,900. Should he make the final table of the Main Event he will have played poker for ten straight days, making three final tables in that time.
Day 2 started with the 338 survivors from the three starting flights combining to one field and ended with 136 players still standing. Some of the players who saw their Main Event run on Tuesday include Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Dan Cates, Joe Hachem, Patrik Antonius, Erik Seidel and Ole Schemion.
Registration closed just after Day 2 action began with a total of 648 players generating a prizepool of AU$6,480,000. A min-cash is worth AU$15,000 while the eventual champion walks away with AU$1,600,000. The runner-up will have to console themselves with AU$1,000,000.
