One of those 12 players is Phil Ivey, who will be sitting on a short stack when the tournament resumes later today.

Here are the chip counts heading into Day 5:

Yann Dion, 2,670,000
Bjorn Li, 2,471,000
Mohamad Kowssarie, 2,230,000
Karim Jomeen, 2,063,000
Daniel Idema, 1,840,000
Lee Nelson, 1,651,000
Patrik Healy, 1,565,000
Janis Lesinskis, 1,501,000
Kenneth Wong, 1,498,000
Oliver Speidel, 809,000
Mile Krstanoski, 755,000
Phil Ivey, 699,000

Ivey may be sitting on the short stack heading into Day 5, but he still has a bit of room to work, as the blinds are currently sitting at 10,000/20,000 with 3,000 antes.

All 12 of the remaining players are guaranteed at least $100,000 AUD for making it this far. The eventual winner of the event will take home $1,600,000 AUD, while the runner-up will walk away with $1,000,000 AUD.


This is going to be Phil Ivey's first tournament cash since he finished in 80th place in the 2010 Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic for $12,669.

A win for Ivey in the Aussie Millions main event would give him the #2 spot on the all-time money list, a spot that is currently held by Daniel Negreanu.
