No more second chances, it's all or nothing today. We're playing for the glory, the money, and the first 2010 Aussie Millions Poker Championship championship gold ring. Welcome back to Crown Casino in Melbourne for Day 2 of the Opening Event!

193 return to the felt to battle it out but we're only 85 players away from the money, so expect to see some fast and furious action in the early stages.

Of course, given that this is the largest tournament field in Australian history, the winner of this event will have accomplished poker's equivalent of climbing Mount Kosciuszko.

So grab yourself a coffee, a bite to eat and don't touch that dial - we'll be back in 30 minutes time to bring you all the action. In the meantime here's a video preview from PokerNews' own Lynn Gilmartin.
