The day saw 18 players still standing in the 2011 Aussie Millions Main Event. By the end of the day, 10 had been eliminated. Some guys who were gone by the end of the day included those who had made the final table at the Main Event in the past, including Mark Vos and Sorel Mizzi. Randy Lew, a Team PokerStars Online Pro, was also eliminated.
Randy Dorfman ended the day in the lead with 3,895,000. The lead is less than commanding but it is substantial. Next in line is James Keys with 2,395,000 chips. The difference between second and third is just 25,000 chips as David Gorr holds that spot with 2,370,000.
The winner of the Main Event gets a first place prize worth AUD$2 million. Although Dorfman is in first, this could be anyone’s tournament. With 1,300,000 chips, Patrik Antonius, who is in fifth, has been known to make comebacks by pushing the limit. One player everyone is looking at is Chris Moorman who holds 955,000 chips and is in last place. Moorman has been a leading online player but in three years has yet to turn that into a major success on the tour.
Others who are left in the Main Event mix include Samad Razavi in fourth with 1,360,000 chips, Jeff Rossiter in sixth with 1,235,000 chips and Michael Ryan who has 960,000 chips and is in seventh.
The 2011 Aussie Millions Main Event will wrap up on Saturday.
