Phil Ivey being eliminated on Day 5 of the Aussie Millions AS10,600 Main Event in 12th place, the Final Table saw 7 players returning for the title. Australian Oliver Speidel recorded his greatest success so far, winning the event.

Kowssarie eventually finished 4th, dropping out at Level 26 (10,000/40,000/80,000): Speidel opened to 160,000 from the button, ‘TerrorOfSweden’ went all-in with the few chips he had left and the Australian insta-called.
Kowssarie: A 2
Speidel: K K
Board: K 8 5 9 8

The Aussie broke his record from last year when he won the A$1,000 NLHE event for A$100,595; now he could take home considerably more, A$1,600,000. The final result is as follows:
