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.
