Posted at 20:00 2015-01-29 by Chad Holloway
With registration open until the start of Day 2, three players waited until the last minute to buy into the 2015 Aussie Millions Poker Championship AU$10,600 Main Event, bringing the total field to 648. That created a prize pool of AU$6,480,000 which will be paid to the top 72 finishers, with AU$1,600,000 reserved for the eventual winner.

A total of 344 players returned for Day 2 action at the Crown Melbourne, and after five 90-minute levels approximately 125 remained with Jan Suchanek and his stack of 483,900 leading the way. It marked the second day in a row Suchanek finished with the top stack after finishing Day 1a at the chip leader.
Others who bagged big stacks include Keanu Simpson (403,000), James Rann (382,000), Michael Pedley (376,700), Andrew Chen (344,400), and Isaac Lau (318,000).
Of course not everyone ran as well as Lau and Suchanek. Among those to meet their demise on Day 2 were Jose "Nacho" Barbero, Winfred Yu, Ole Schemion, Erik Seidel, Jeff Rossiter, Jack Salter, Jeff Lisandro, former champ David Gorr, Patrik Antonius, Joe Hachem, Scott Davies and Dan "jungleman12" Cates.
