It has been a commonly heard complaint here on PokerNetwork for a number of years. That is, the world’s biggest online site, Pokerstars’ lack of involvement with the Aussie Millions. That’s set to change with the 2010 tournament thanks to the scheduling clash with the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure being rectified. While it’s true that the PCA is PokerStars’ main focus at the moment, local players will be pleased to know that daily satellites are underway for Australia’s marquee main event.
Tuesdays through Saturdays players will have two chances a night to satellite through to the weekly $530 qualifiers. On each of those days players can pony up for the 500FPP rebuy at 7:00pm AEDST that will award one seat into the $530 qualifier tournament for each 33,000 FPPs in the pool. At 7:30pm AEDST they can put the real dough on the line in the $16 rebuy that will award a one seat into the qualifier for every $530 in the prize pool. An additional $16 rebuy tournament will be held at 2pm on Saturdays. The daily events will feed players to the main $530 satellites, where US$11,000 Aussie Millions Main Event packages will be up for grabs. The packages will be enough for main event buyin and a cash payout that players can use for expenses.
The $530 satellites will run at 2pm AEDST every Sunday between Dec ember 13 and January 10. A package will be won for every $11,000 in the prize pool. This is a great opportunity for the next Aussie player to rise up and defend the home crown after Stewart Scott’s breakthrough victory in 2009. The 2010 winner is guaranteed to take home well over US$1,200,000!
