Martin Kozlov Eliminated

Webjoker • Nível 13: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

In a button versus blind situation, short stacked Martin Kozlov got it in with not a whole lot of equity. His {A-Clubs}{5-Clubs} was dominated by the {A-Spades}{A-Hearts} of Antoine Saout. The {K-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{7-Clubs} flop left him some outs to improve but he hit none of his cards with the {J-Hearts} on the turn and {3-Clubs} on the river.

Down to 17 players after just 50 minutes of play.

Stephen Chidwick lost a sizable pot to his neighbor Brandon Adams where he check-called a bet of 85,000 on the river but couldn't beat his opponent's {K-}{10-} on a ace-ten high board.

The next hand, down to about 110,000 or so, Chidwick opened to 10,000. Adams called before small blind Jeff Rossiter squeezed to 45,000. Chidwick moved all in, Adams folded, Rossiter called.

Chidwick tabled {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades} while Rossiter showed {K-Clubs}{K-Spades}. The board ran out {K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Spades}{8-Diamonds} and Chidwick headed for the exit.

No Back to Back for Kornuth

Chance Kornuth

Tomas Jozonis and Martin Kozlov got their chips in the middle before the flop with respectively pocket sixes and ace-queen. Kozlov was at risk for his last 41,000 and doubled as he hit a set on the turn to leave Jozonis drawing dead.

Jozonis would receive chips back the next hand and then some, though, as he busted defending champion Chance Kornuth. Kornuth got his short stack in with {A-Hearts}{3-Hearts} up against the {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} of Jozonis.

The board of {5-Hearts}{9-Spades}{8-Clubs}{6-Spades}{K-Spades} brought no help for Kornuth and he left for the rail.

Another One!

Sam Greenwood
Sam Greenwood

As the great poet DJ Khaled always says; "Another one!"

Greenwood is the last player to bust, he fell at the hands of Manig Loeser. Jeff Rossiter gave us the details.

Greenwood opened for 12,000 from the hijack and small blind Manig Loeser three-bet to 35,000. Greenwood called in position and called a bet on {K-}{7-}{4-} with two clubs as well.

The turn was a blank and Loeser shoved. Greenwood had about 63,000 left and called with {K-}{Q-} but was trailing Loeser's {A-}{A-}. A blank on the river send Greenwood to the rail.

Dan Shak got his chips in with {9-Clubs}{9-Spades} up against the {A-Spades}{K-Spades} of his neighbor Mustapha Kanit. The board they shared was {A-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Spades}{J-Hearts} and Shak said his goodbyes.

At the same time, one table over, Jason Pritchard was all in with {A-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} against the {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts} of Pratyush Buddiga. The board ran out {2-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{2-Spades} and Pritchard was already wishing the players the best of luck on the turn as he was drawing dead.

Hall Busts Higgs

Webjoker • Nível 13: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

He got away with it the first time, but his second time all in it was all over for Higgs.

Action folded to Hall on the button who put in enough chips to put both blinds al in. Jason Pritchard folded his small blind but big blind Higgs called.

Cate Hall: {A-Spades}{10-Hearts}
Sam Higgs: {A-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}

The board ran out {6-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and Higgs exited in 24th place. Just before him, Barry Woods had busted one table over so it's just 23 players remaining right now.

Chop It Up!

Webjoker • Nível 13: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Sam Higgs shoved the button for 30,000 exactly and both Pratyush Buddiga in the small blind and big blind John Juanda called. Both Buddiga and Juanda checked the board of {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{9-Spades} down and it was time for everyone to reveal their cards. It turned out Higgs had only a single out left on the turn as Buddiga showed {A-Diamonds}{7-Spades} while Juanda tabled {A-Spades}{7-Spades}. Higgs had {J-Hearts}{4-Hearts} but with quads on the board with an ace kicker, they divided the pot by three.

Day 2 of the 2017 Aussie Millions $25,000 Challenge gets underway at 2:30 p.m. local time, or in about four hours. Leading the pack is James Chen from Taiwan who turned a 50,000 starting stack into an impressive 621,000 in the 12 levels played on day one. He's followed by former November Niner Antoine Saout (601,000), local hero Jeff Rossiter (582,500), Italian superstar Mustapha Kanit (485,000) and resurrected poker player Brandon Adams (455,500).

Action gets underway with blinds at 2,500/5,000 with a 500-ante. Levels will be one-hour long again, with the tournament playing down to a winner today. With 25 players remaining, the money is in sight as 14 players will earn a minimum of A$63,840. Taking down this whole ordeal will net the champion A$861,840, not bad for two days of work.

PokerNews.com will be on the floor the entire day to bring you live updates and photos from the biggest ever A$25,000 tournament on Australian soil.
