The second and final day of the A$1,150 No-Limit Hold'em Terminator Event #13 of the 2016 Aussie Millions Poker Championship gets underway in half an hour from now at 1 p.m. local time in the poker room of the Crown Entertainment Complex. A field of 316 entries has been reduced to the last 21 hopefuls over the course of 15 levels and Mark Payne is leading the field with 386,500 chips.
The overnight podium is completed by Sam Vakili (371,500) and Samantha Abernathy (353,000) while Don Mishra (175,500) is looking for another final table after finishing 9th in the #Accumulator Event yesterday. Fellow finalist Park Yu Cheung just fell short of making Day 2, as did Australia's poker queen Jackie Glazier.
Other notables include Minh Nguyen (108,000), Walter Treccarichi (98,000) and World Series of Poker bracelet winner Paul Hoefer (69,000), who are among the short stacks when play resumes with blinds of 3,000-6,000 and a running ante of 1,000. All survivors are guaranteed at least A$1,495 for their efforts, each knockout gives another A$500 in profit whereas the winner can look forward to a payday of A$39,000 and the elusive LK Boutique championship ring.
