The 2017 Aussie Millions is now down to 5 tables with just 40 players from the 725-strong field remaining.
The play is tightening up slightly as we enter the last 70 minutes of the day and we have not seen many hands progress much past the flop for the last 15 minutes.
We get a rare showdown over on [Removed:17]’s table after Nicholas Dixon opened the action with a raise to 23,000 with Yan (small blind) and the big blind making the call.
The flop fell and both the blinds checked the action over to Dixon who continuation bet 28,000. Yan called and the big blind bowed out to take the action heads-up to a turn.
Yan checked for the second time and Dixon moved all-in. Dixon has Yan covered but the New Zealand pro did not hesitate to call off for his tournament life and the cards were turned over. Dixon showed and Yan was holding the same hand, the only difference being his was suited .
That resulted in an anticlimactic chop when the river came down . Yan is sitting on 180,000 and Dixon looks to have about 450,000.
