With the elimniation of Jason Gray, we have reached our four finalists. David Gent will be squaring off against John Tabatabai, and Jarred Solomon will be taking on Alec ‘Traheho’ Torelli in the semi finals.

Today was a day for marathon duels, with Andrew Scott being the main culprit as his first round match lasted four hours, and then his second lasting a little over three. However, we also saw some incredible poker from all the players and have finished the day with the best of the best.

With Solomon still in the main event, a new schedule will be arranged so that the matches can be played tomorrow. With their conclusion, an Event #10: $5,300 Heads Up Champion will be crowned and the Aussie Millions will give birth to a new Gold Ring wearer.

Make sure to log on to PokerNews at 4:30pm local time (scheduling permitted) to see who will take home the AU$100,000 first prize, coveted Gold Ring and title of Heads Up Champion!
