Quoss Takes Down $1,446,480 AUD For His VictoryPublished on January 30th, 2016 3:02 pm EST
Fabian Quoss navigated through an extremely stacked final table to take down the $100,000 Challenge at the 2016 Aussie Millions earlier today for $1,446,480 AUD (roughly $1 million USD). This victory gives Quoss nearly $8 million USD in total lifetime tournament cashes and represents the second largest cash of his career.
A total of 30 players turned out for this year's $100k Challenge at the Aussie Millions. With 11 re-entries, the prize pool topped $4 million AUD.
As mentioned, the final table was very stacked with talent. Fedor Holz, who has been dominant in high roller events as of late, ended up finishing in sixth place for $281,260 AUD. Connor Drinan and Sam Greenwood, who both have millions of dollars in lifetime tournament cashes, finished 4th and 5th respectively. Jason Mercier, a multiple World Series of Poker bracelet winner, finished in third, while Ben Tollerene, one of the most recent high stakes online cash game players in the world, finished in second place for $924,140 AUD.
The final table of the tournament didn't take very long to complete. All six of the players have played in big tournaments before, so there was no trepidation to get stacks into the middle of the table.
The final hand of the event took place when Quoss elected to move all-in pre-flop on a short-stacked Tollerene. Tollerene had little choice but to call with his Js-10d, while Quoss turned over his Kh-Jh. The board ran out 6h-5c-4d-5h-5d, giving Quoss the victory with his King high.
With the $100,000 Challenge now having drawn to a close, all eyes will turn towards the Aussie Millions main event, which will be concluding on Sunday afternoon.
