Event 8: $100,000 Challenge

$100,000 Challenge

Welcome to the biggest buy-in event of the 2010 Aussie Millions. The $100,000 Challenge is set to feature the best of the best in poker, all looking to capture the title of one of the largest tournaments in the world.

Upstairs in Studio 3 at Crown Casino is where the event will be held. A live audience will be on to view the action for the first time and the event is being filmed for television.

There's an expectation of four tables that will be filled with the a who's who list of poker players. Phil Ivey, Tony G, Howard Lederer, Gus Hansen, David Steicke and Barry Greenstein are all confirmed to be playing in the event.

There's a unique structure to the event where players will be playing pot-limit Hold'em preflop and no-limit Hold'em after the flop. Also, each player will only have 30 seconds with each decision.

Right now, the production crew and staff are working out their last-minute preparations and things will be underway shortly. Stay tuned!
