Aussie Millions Becomes Independent Events as PokerStars Restructures

The prestigious Australian Poker Championship and the largest poker championship in the Southern Hemisphere, the Aussie Millions, will revert to being a standalone event after PokerStars announced the restructure of their regional tours.

PokerStars currently runs a series of regional tours which included the European Poker Tour (EPT), the Latin American Poker Tour (LAPT) and the Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT). The Aussie Millions, which was established in 1998 as the Australian Poker Championship and had been affiliated with the APPT since 2014, will now become an independent event once again.

The three-week Aussie Millions series includes two dozen individual tournaments and a AU$10,600 buy-in No Limit Texas Hold’em Main Event. The series has been held at Crown Melbourne since it first started.

“On behalf of Crown Management and the Poker Team, we would like to extend our sincerest thanks to everyone from APPT including the management and operations team, along with the poker community for their ongoing support,” commented Joel Williams, Tournament Director for the Crown Melbourne poker room.

Williams confirmed that the 2016 event will be the final event of the APPT Melbourne and it will take place as planned on October 6, 2016. From 2017, the event will revert to being a standalone event and will run from January 11 to January 30, 2017. It will be the 20th annual Aussie Millions Championship.

“All previous Satellite entry pathways are expected to remain active for the 2017 Aussie Millions. Land-based satellites have already commenced in the Crown Poker Room,” assured Williams.

In 2005, the champion was guaranteed a AU$1 million prize and last year, the winner of the main event, pro Ari Engel, took home a prize of AU$1.6 million.
