The Aussie Millions Winners

Unfortunately I did not advance deep  to the finals stages of the Aussie Millions to win the $18,000 play texas hold’em prize package offered on PokerRoom ( http://www.pokerroom.com/promos/right-now/aussie-millions-how-to.html).  However, I must send out my congratulations to those that did including ChipLieder85, AmazingRiver, and CorpseGR.

Can’t beat the systems or the variety of means to get there. ..  

You can start in the Lucky Dollar level, where $1.00 + $0.10 gets you a chance to advance to the next level playing Texas Holdem online, $15 +$1.50, and from there $69 +$6.  Win a seat there and it gets you into the equivalent of a $500 +$40 buy-in.  Remember how Chris Moneymaker won big at the WSOP, same principle to get there.  Shannon Shorr of the Gulf Coast started his career with qualifiers to the Aussie Millions and then crushed the field once he got there. 

You could also have won the Big Bounty event which paid the top two places with the $18,000 packages and give you the opportunity to win $100 for each Team PokerRoom member you knocked out.  Then there was the Mobile Millions online texas hold’em poker challenge (http://www.pokerroom.com/promos/right-now/aussie-millions-mobile.html), and coming soon the Leaderboard Challenge and the Sit ‘n Go Jackpot.  All great wins to win the prize package.  There is another qualifier starting tonight. 

I hope to play tonight.  I have had a good streak going on this site and think I can advance past the early levels.  I’ve seen how hard Will Souther is working on a similar structure and I know it’s a challenge.  But it’s a fun one.   Pretty soon, I hope to be reporting from Melbourne.  Just as long as my big cards hold and my little ones improve.

Congrats to the Aussie Millions Poker Prize Package Winners

The Poker Room (http://www.pokerroom.com) has out done itself with qualifiers to the Main Event of the Aussie Millions (http://www.pokerroom.com/promos/right-now/aussie-millions/). You can play online texas holdem all the way to Melbourne. Their poker prize package now includes: $10,500 (Australia) buy-in to the Texas Hold ‘Em Main Event, $2,200 buy-in (AUS) to a six handed event, 11 nights at the posh Crown Victoria hotel ($4,000 U.S), and $3,000 (U.S.) expense money.

They have a few different ways to play poker to get there. Unfortunately, I have yet to advance deep in the Lucky Dollar online poker play qualifiers. With them basically you can get in cheap to the first level of satellites by playing a $1.10 qualifer and go up a ladder of events ($15 +$1.50, $69 +$6, $500 +$40). This is the type of way Chris Moneymaker qualified for the WSOP Main Event. One day he decided to play poker online in a small qualifer and kept advancing until he won his seat. The rest they say is history. I also read that Shannon Shorr started his texas holdem career at the Aussie Millions by progressing up a ladder of qualifiers. Once in Melbourne he crushed the the texas hold’em tournament.

I like Poker Room because they have 4 or 5 different ways to get to the main events of global poker tournaments. For the Aussie Millions, they also had the Mobile Millions (you can play mobile poker), a Bounty Tournament, and coming soon a sit ‘n go challenge and a leaderboard challenge.

 There is another tournament tonight which I might take a shot at.

Hopefully, you’ll read a blog post from me in Melbourne sipping a frothy beer if I do advance.
