Using the new PokerPro automated poker tables, event 2 of the Aussie Millions was staged at Crown Casino on Monday with Brisbane player Mitchell Carle taking out the 2nd ring of the series.
Carle is no stranger to the event, taking out 3rd place in the PokerPro event in 2008.
PokerPro’s automated ‘dealerless’ poker tables suit online players better as it’s very much a ‘singular’ game, with less opportunity for spotting ‘tells’.
Each table has 10 players and the smaller field and faster pace of the game meant that it took 83 players less than 8 hours to finish the whole tournament.
Carle got to the final sitting up against Daniel Neilson but was still going head to head with a 3:1 chip stack.
It only took a few hands and Carle emerged victorious, picking up the $25,000 prize with Neilson taking home a handy $16,600 for his troubles. For full play by play coverage of the game, please visit pokernews.com.
