Australian Dylan Honeyman finished 5th in this event last year and he’s made a return in hopes of improving on that by four places here this week. So far Honeyman has had a rocky start but he just added some chips to his shorter stack with some preflop play.
The action began with the player in the hijack opening to 450 before both the cutoff and the button made the call. Honeyman was sitting in the small blind and he opted to push all in for 5,550. That was too much for his three opponents who all folded their hands before the pot was awarded to Honeyman.
Also at the tables today is fellow 2016 Aussie Millions Main Event final tablist Alex Lynskey who placed fourth last year for A$445,000. We’ll be keeping a close eye on both he and Honeyman’s progress here on Day 1b.
