• Nível 1: 50-100, 0 ante

Australian cricket legend Shane Warne is chipping up after taking down a pot that went three-way to the flop.

After the dealer spread {5-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{q-Clubs} Warne checked from the big blind and the cutoff checked behind. The player on the button fired for 2,500 and after Warne made the call the cutoff relinquished his hand.

The {7-Clubs} fell on the turn and the action was checked through to the {a-Diamonds} river.

Again it was checked down and Warne tabled {k-Spades}{q-Diamonds} for the winner.

Quoss Sits Down

Quoss won't defend his title in the $100,000 Challenge
Quoss won't defend his title in the $100,000 Challenge

Fabian Quoss won the $100,000 Challenge here last year for a massive A$1,446,480 (roughly $1 million) but won't be competing in the event this year.

"I've played poker like three times since Vegas," Quoss said when we asked him if he was defending his title in the $100,000 Challenge.

Quoss actually sat down in the Main Event, so the $100,000 Challenge will crown a new winner this year. The $100,000 Challenge starts in about 40 minutes, but you can follow Quoss' progress right here in the Main Event.

$100,000 Action

Webjoker • Nível 1: 50-100, 0 ante

In about an hour time, the $100,000 Challenge kicks off here at the 2017 Aussie Million. Running alongside the Main Event for the first two days, and going on a hiatus after that for four days, players wanting to play the $100,000 event can still play the Main Event but will most likely have to go for Day 1c. That means, players playing in today's $10,000 Main Event won't be participating in the $100,000 Challenge.

Max Silver, Jack Salter and Chance Kornuth are playing the Main Event right now, so those high roller regulars have decided to skip the $100,000 Challenge this year.

Kiwi Putt Pressures Tilly

• Nível 1: 50-100, 0 ante

The player in middle position limped into the pot before his opponent in the hijack raised to 300. Jennifer Tilly called from the cutoff as did Louis Salter in the small blind. Graeme 'Kiwi' Putt then tossed out a raise to 1,600 which was enough to force everyone out, except Tilly. She called.

The flop came down {3-Spades}{7-Hearts}{j-Hearts} and Putt fired out another bet totalling 3,000. Tilly casually slid her cards into the muck as she relinquished the hand.

Kornuth Regrets Nothing

Webjoker • Nível 1: 50-100, 0 ante

The player under the gun limped in for 100 and his neighbor Phil Laak followed suit tossing in 100 of his own. The small blind completed before big blind Chance Kornuth raised to 600. The first limper and Laak called, the small blind folded.

The flop came {4-Spades}{2-Spades}{3-Hearts} and Kornuth bet 1,000. The under the gun player instantly called and Laak followed his example once more, tossing in a 1,000-chip.

With the {2-Clubs} hitting the turn, Kornuth checked. Under the gun bet 2,500 and Laak let it go. So did Kornuth who said "I could've just checked and played it friendly..."

The dealer started shoving the pot to the under the gun player as Kornuth added with a big smile: "But I don't regret my decision!"

Mooney Picks One Off

• Nível 1: 50-100, 0 ante

Nick Mooney is making the most of the first level after picking off a tablemate’s bluff on the river.

The board was spread {9-Hearts}{10-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{8-Spades} and with only two active players, the small blind led at it for 3,600. Mooney studied the board for a couple of minutes before announcing a call to see the good news.

Opponent: {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Mooney: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

Despite the connected board Mooney made the correct call with his overpair and climbed to 33,000 in chips.

Salter Gets Check-Raised

We caught the action as the turn was already out in a hand between high roller regular Jack Salter (hijack) and a player in the big blind. The board read {J-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs} as the big blind checked. Salter bet 500 and the big blind called.

The {3-Diamonds} completed the board and the big blind checked once more. Salter bet 600 and the big blind grabbed some multi-colored chips and tossed them in.

"Raise to 1,600" the dealer said.

Salter wasn't too certain of what to do and started a little interrogation.

"Do you have a straight?" Salter asked at one point.

His opponent shook his head.

Salter, still looking a bit puzzled, tossed in a 1,000-chip to call. The big blind showed {6-Spades}{8-Clubs} and mucked. Salter revealed his {A-Hearts}{J-Spades} and collected the chips in the pot.
