Barry Greenstein, Phil Ivey Make Final Table of Aussie Millions $100,000 ChallengePublished on January 24th, 2010 12:57 am EST
The final day of the 2010 Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge is set to get underway on Monday afternoon (local time).
Jonathan Karamalikis will enter the final table as the tournament chip leader, as he currently possesses a stack of around 508k.
Karamalikis will need to navigate through a final table filled with sharks to claim a victory in the event, as Barry Greenstein (388k), Phil Ivey (328k), Tony G (200k) and Howard Lederer (141k) all managed to make it to the final day of the event as well.
At stake? $1.2 million AUD, which translates to about $1.08 million dollars USD.
There are currently 8 players left in the event, but only the top 5 spots will pay. The payouts look like this (AUD):
1. $1.2 million
Some of the players who weren't fortunate enough to make it to the final table included Gus Hansen, Erick Lindgren, Jeff Lisandro and Tom "durrrr" Dwan. Erick Lindgren won the event in 2007.
Jonathan Karamalikis is no joke, and has already secured a victory in the 2010 Aussie Millions (he won Event #5 for over $122k). However, the competition at the final table will be formidable, and taking down the $100,000 Challenge will be no easy feat.
Here are the chip stacks heading into the final day of play:
1. Jonathan Karamalikis, 508,000
2. Dan Shak, 453,000
3. Barry Greenstein, 388,000
4. Phil Ivey, 328,000
5. Tony Bloom, 227,000
6. Tony G, 200,000
7. Bill Jordanou, 195,000
8. Howard Lederer, 141,000
It's also worth noting that Phil Ivey would pass Daniel Negreanu on the all-time money list with a fourth place finish or better in this event.
We'll have a full update when the final table draws to a close on Monday.
