Phil Ivey - Aussie Millions - CollageLast year, Phil Ivey finished in 12th place in the $10,000 Aussie Millions main event. Shortly after busting out of the main event, Ivey strolled over to the $250,000 Super High Roller event and took it down for $2,000,000.

Ivey made another deep run in this year's main event, surviving all the way to the fourth day of play before being eliminated with approximately 30 people left in the tournament. Ivey managed to outlast about 600 other players and picked up $30,000 for his finish.

Despite falling short of an Aussie Millions main event title, Phil Ivey still managed to make hundreds of thousands of dollars on the day, thanks to some strong play on Full Tilt Poker.

According to, Phil Ivey (now playing under the alias "Polarizing"), is up roughly $600,000 on Full Tilt Poker over the last 24 hours. This $600k of profit has come over roughly 1,000 hands.

Up until today, Ivey had been down roughly $367k on Full Tilt Poker for the month of January.


Patrik Antonius also made hundreds of thousands of dollars on Full Tilt Poker today while waiting for the fourth day of the Aussie Millions main event to get underway. Unlike Ivey, Antonius is still alive in the event - Antonius currently has over 1,000,000 in chips, which puts him amongst the top chip stacks.

Antonius has made $252,407 over the past 24 hours on Full Tilt.
