Congratulations to Michael Binger for overcoming a world-class field of 42 players to capture the title in Event #12 of the Aussie Millions.

In a marathon final table, he fought back from being the short stack when three-handed to overcome a determined Michael Zowie and highly talented Josh Field, to grab the win. Binger collects AU$123,840 and the coveted Aussie Millions Gold Ring.

As most folk awake and venture into work on a Friday morning, we bid farewell to Thursday night and will see you again in a few short hours for Day 4 of the Aussie Millions Main Event!

Finally...on the stroke of 6 a.m...it's over!

The action flop was {2-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} with Josh Field betting out before Michael Binger raised the pot. Field moved all in and Binger made the call.

Field: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{3-Hearts}
Binger: {2-Spades}{6-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}

Field had an overpair and flush draw but Binger had flopped two pair with a bigger flush draw.

The turn was the {8-Clubs} and river the {2-Diamonds} to give Binger a full house and the win!

Josh Field takes home AU$89,010 for a fine tournament.

Michael Zowiew raised all in for his last 12,000 from the button and both Josh Field and Michael Binger made the call in the blinds.

The action was checked until the river on a {10-Clubs}{6-Spades}{3-Hearts}{A-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} board between both live players until Binger tossed out 10,000 on the river to force a fold from Field.

Binger tabled {2-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{6-Hearts} for trip sixes which Zowie couldn't better and after a marathon effort, he becomes our third place finisher and collects AU$61,920 for his time.

Binger Captures Huge Pot

Posted 2009-01-23 GMT+12
Josh Field raised to 8,000 on the button and Michael Binger called in the small blind before Michael Zowie added another 24,000 from the big blind. Both opponents called and they saw a flop of {J-Spades}{J-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}.

With 96,000 in the pot up for grabs, the play checked around. The turn was the {9-Clubs} and again it was checked around.

The river was the {K-Spades} and Binger tossed out a small bet of 20,000 but it was enough as both opponents folded.

Binger grabs a huge pot as Zowie is left with only 10,000 in chips.
