      The Aussie Millions 250k Challenge had now reached a final table of 9 and I doubt you will see a sicker final 9.



      Isaac Haxton 3,594,000
      Mike McDonald 1,413,000
      Tom Dwan 1,296,000
      Erik Seidel 1,229,000
      Daniel Negreanu 1,054,000
      Phil Ivey 995,000
      Fabian Quoss 981,000
      Tony Bloom 591,000
      Max Altergott 345,000

      They are currently playing Level 12 with blinds at 15k/30k/4k.

      And the sick prizepool:

      Place Prize (AU$)
      1 $4,000,000
      2 $2,820,000
      3 $1,900,000
      4 $1,250,000
      5 $800,000
      6 $500,000

      Wow. And as I type this Tony Bloom has been eliminated. He got all his chips in with JJ but was dominated by Ike Haxton's QQ and couldn't improve. This leaves us with the official TV final table and players are now making their way to Studio 3 and the ESPN cameras.

      Players have decided to take a dinner break while the TV crew gets everything setup.

      Ike Haxton is a mammoth leader with around 40% of the total chips in play. He needs to finish at least 4th to cover his high roller bill which included firing 6 bullets in the 100k Challenge and 2 in the 250k Challenge or a total of $1.1 Million.

      Isaac Haxton 4,256,000
      Mike McDonald 1,379,000
      Tom Dwan 1,292,000
      Erik Seidel 1,225,000
      Daniel Negreanu 1,055,000
      Fabian Quoss 976,000
      Phil Ivey 976,000
      Max Altergott 341,000

      Will post the seating draw as soon as it comes to hand.

      Max Altergott has just been eliminated in 8th place. With the blinds at 15k/30k/4k, Tom Dwan opened to 67k and Altergott defended his blind. Flop 4 :diamond: 6 :diamond: 9 :club: .

      Altergott shoved the flop holding K :club: 9 :diamond: but was behind to Durr's T :heart: T :diamond: .

      No help forthcoming on the turn 4 :club: and river 6 :club:

      We are now at the money bubble with the next bust receiving Nil and the final 6 guaranteed a minimum $500k.

      Action folded to Durr in the SB who shoved A :spade: 5 :spade: into short stack Fabian Quoss' big blind. Unfortunately for Durr, Quoss had Q :heart: Q :spade: .

      Flop J :diamond: 4 :diamond: Q :diamond: , gicing Qoss a big lead. K :spade: arrived on the turn to give Durr some hope, but the Q :club: peeled off on the river to give Quoss quads.


      Fabian Quoss 1,400,000 +898,000
      Tom Dwan 1,200,000 -745,000

      Phil Ivey has just doubled through Ike Haxton. Ivey Min raised from the hijack to 80k and Haxton 3B to 225K on the button, Ivey 4B shoved and Haxton called. The cards were flipped over and the news was good for Ivey.

      Ivey A :club: Q :spade:
      Haxton A :spade: J :diamond:

      The board ran out K :heart: 4 :spade: 3 :heart: 9 :spade: 2 :diamond:


      Isaac Haxton 3,500,000 -900,000
      Phil Ivey 1,900,000 +880,000

      The bubble has burst. Erik Seidel open shoved for about 15 BBs with JJ and got snapped of by Fabian Quoss who reshoved with KK to clear out the field.

      The Kings held and Seidel leaves empty handed.

      Tom Dwan has just been eliminated by Ike Haxton. Durr got the last of his chips in with 88 against KJ of Haxton. The board ran out AK7J6 and Durr was off to the payout cage to pick up $500k.
