Congratulations to Zach Gruneberg who, on the stroke of 5 a.m. local time, delivered the final blow to capture the title of Event #4 of the 2009 Aussie Millions. He was able to overcome 139 other hopefuls and a heavyweight final table to take home the prized Championship Gold Ring and a handsome AU$35,000 first place prize.
It's time for some sleep, but we'll be back into the thick of the action again tomorrow as Event #5 kicks off with the always entertaining $1,100 HORSE event. The jockeys will begin racing at 12:30 p.m. local time and we look forward to your company once again then.

The turn was the and Maguire check-called the bet from Bergeron. The river produced the and again Bergeron bet and Maguire called.
Bergeron turned over for a full house, eights full of jacks, as Maguire flashed the and mucked his hand. Bergeron is up to 255,000 with Maguire now under pressure with only 75,000.
With plenty of yawns around the room and talk of fatigue, the three remaining have just been offered the option of calling it a night and coming back in tomorrow afternoon to complete the rest of this tournament.
The three shrugged, looked at each other blankly for a moment, then decided to solider on and finish it tonight.
