Australia’s Crown Melbourne Casino unveiled Tuesday the details for one of the most anticipated series of the year: the 2014 Aussie Millions Poker Championship.
The down-under poker festival will feature 20 total tournaments, 19 “Championship Ring” side events plus its prestigious Main Event, starting on January 23 and wrapping up on February 10.
Event buy-ins range from AUD $1100 (~USD $990) to the AUD $10600 ($~9500 USD) Main Event, plus three different 2-day highroller events in the amounts of $25k, $100k, and the last tournament on the schedule, the super high roller $250,000 Challenge.
This year, every event will afford the player one re-entry, save the Main Event in which there is none and the $250k which is unlimited through the first 4 levels. Satellites for the Main Event will be running at the Crown Melbourne both during and before the series starts as Aussie Millions officials hope to top the over AUD $1.6M first place Main Event prize won last year by Mervin Chan.
The early 2014 poker calendar once again is packed with premiere events: These dates are confirmed a day after PokerStars began running online satellites for it’s annual early January event, the PCA.
