Randy Dorfman Leads, Patrik Antonius Still AlivePublished on January 28th, 2011 4:37 pm EST
The final day of the 2011 Aussie Millions main event is set to get underway in just a few hours.
After four full days of play in the main event, the 721 player field has been whittled down to just eight.
At the top of the leaderboard heading into the final day of play is Randy Dorfman, who managed to finish Day 4 with a stack of nearly 4 million chips (3,895,000). Dorfman has a comfortable chip lead headed into Saturday, as he managed to accumulate 1.5 million chips more than the current second place stack, James Keys (2,395,000).
Patrik Antonius is also still alive in the main event, as he managed to finish Day 4 with 1.3 million in chips. Antonius was the chip leader late in Day 4, but faltered to close out the day. Antonius is looking for his first major tournament win since winning the EPT Baden Classic in 2005.
Here are the chip stacks heading into the final day of play on Saturday:
Randy Dorfman, 3,895,000
James Keys, 2,395,000
David Gorr, 2,370,000
Samad Razavi, 1,360,000
Patrik Antonius, 1,300,000
Jeff Rossiter, 1,235,000
Michael Ryan, 960,000
Chris Moorman, 955,000
All eight players are guaranteed a minimum of $130,000 AUD for making it this far, with the eventual winner of the main event walking away with $2 million AUD.
Sorel Mizzi (9th, $130,000 AUD) and Randy "nanonoko" Lew (10th, $100,000 AUD) both made deep runs in the main event, but neither player was quite able to make it to the final day of play on Saturday. This was Mizzi's third deep run in the Aussie Millions main event - he also finished third in 2010 for $715,000 AUD and 16th in 2009 for $65,000 AUD.
