Robl Defeats Igor Kurganov To Take Down Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge
Earlier today, Andrew Robl defeated Igor Kurganov during heads-up play to take down the 2013 Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge.
Robl walked away with $1,000,000 AUD after taking down the Challenge, which works out to about $1,040,000 USD.
A total of 21 players turned out for the event - there was a rebuy option, and Andrew Robl was the only person to elect to use this option. This turned out to be a pretty smart move, as he ended up taking down the event.
Here is how the payouts ended up looking:
Andrew Robl, $1,000,000 AUD
Igor Kurganov, $610,000 AUD
Masa Kagawa, $320,000 AUD
Dan Shak, $237,000 AUD
Gus Hansen, Patrik Antonius, Vanessa Selbst, John Juanda and Sam Trickett were some of the names who entered this event but didn't end up cashing.
The final hand of the tournament came when Robl and Kurganov got all-in with the board reading:
The two players turned over:
Robl - As-5c
Kurganov - 4d-3s
Kurganov had turned two pair, but Robl had turned a straight.
The river brought the Qs, giving Robl the pot and the tournament.
Thanks to his victory in the Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge, Andrew Robl now has nearly $3.5 million in total lifetime tournament cashes.
Robl had this to say on Twitter after his win:
"Wow i actually won."
