At 5:35am after a grueling 15 and a half hour day, Kristian Lunardi has been crowned champion. The tournament itself started with 245 runners and took nearly 30 hours in just two days to complete.
The structure was lavish, giving players an extremely long time to find their cards. There is no doubt that Lunardi earned his victory today.
One just needs look at the opponents that he had to overcome on the final table including Tony Dunst, Daniel Neilson, and Leo Margets.
Kristian Lunardi's victory caps of a crammed almost three schedule of events here at the Aussie Millions Poker Championship. In all 20 events were played, as well as countless satellites and side games. The championship and the Crown tournament staff, as well as the players, proved once again why this is one of the world's most popular poker tournaments.
