Sam Trickett took down the Aussie Millions A$250,000 Challenge, the Super High Roller event of the show. The British pro is now nearing the $20 million in total live tournament winnings.
The Aussie Millions Super High Roller tournament, or the AS$250,000 Challenge started on 30 January with the participation of 14 top poker players: Andrew Robl, Antonio Esfandiari, Erik Seidel, Fabian Quoss, Gus Hansen, Igor Kurganov, Jason Mercier, Paul Phua, Philipp Gruissem, Richard Yong, Sam Trickett, Tobias Reinkemeier, Tony Bloom and Winfred Yu. Robl, Hansen, Bloom and Phua also bought re-buys for a total A$4,500,000 prize pool.

Day 1 ended when they reached the 7-handed final table:

Seat 1: Richard Yong – 580,000
Seat 2: Sam Trickett – 494,000
Seat 3: Fabian Quoss – 764,000
Seat 4: Tobias Reinkemeier – 1,237,000
Seat 5: Winfred Yu – 387,000
Seat 6: Igor Kurganov – 854,000
Seat 7: Erik Seidel – 184,000


While the final table consisted of 7 players, the bubble only burst after three more eliminations. Yong and Seidel dropped out before a long, 5-handed game, as the 4th position was worth a handsome A$500,000. On Level 14 (5,000/25,000/50,000), shortstack Yu shoved from SB and got called by Kurganov from BB, who flopped a decisive pair.

Soon, Kurganov himself was railed: the Russian saw the flop with chipleader Trickett, which was {#}9 {#}3 {#}2 . Kurganov checked, Trickett opened to 80,000, Kurganov called and the turn came {#}4 . Kurganov checked again, Trickett bet 160,000 and the Russian shoved with his {#}J {#}7 flush. Tricket insta-called and showed a {#}6 {#}5 straight flush, rendering the river irrelevant.

Sam Trickett – 3,215,000
Tobias Reinkemeier – 985,000
Fabian Quoss – 325,000


After a short brake but still on the same level, shortstack Quoss went pre-flop all-in with {#}7 {#}6 , Trickett called with {#}A {#}T and had a nut straight, finalising the heads-up setup as follows:

Sam Trickett – 3,720,000
Tobias Reinkemeier – 780,000


The HU lasted no longer than a couple of minutes. Reinkemeier went pre-flop all-in from the Button and Trickett called.

Reinkemeier: {#}K {#}2
Trickett: {#}A {#}5

Board: {#}J {#}8 {#}7 {#}Q {#}8

Trickett won the tournament with ace high.

The Brit’s total live tournament winnings are now in the $20 million region, making him second only to Antonio Esfandiari on the all-time money list and placing him before Phil Ivey and Phil Hellmuth.
