Event #5 of the 2013 Aussie Millions has been completed and it is Michel Bouskila who has won it. The $1,100 No Limit Hold’em Six-Max event was as popular as ever, with 523 players buying in. They created a prize pool of $523,000 of which $11,000 was awarded to the winner, Bouskila.
The huge crowd was reduced to just nine players after the first day play, these nine returning to the Crown Poker Room on Friday afternoon to complete the tournament. The first player out of the door was the United Kingdom’s Neil Channing. The Brit lost a large percentage of his stack with against the pocket nines of Andrew Bassat then ironically lost the rest of his chips whilst holding a pair of nines. Channing’s nines ran into the black jacks of Vlastimil Stasny and did not improve.
Following Channing to the rail was Matthew Wooley. A pair of jacks were more than enough for Wooley to commit his stack with, but he was unfortunate to run into the much stronger of Oliver Gill. Wooley received no help from the board and he was eliminated.
Rather than play one table of three players and another with just four on it, the seven remaining players came together to form the final table. Here is how they lined up.
Ian Cordts was the man who busted out in seventh place, returning the tournament back to a six-handed format. With blinds of 12,000/24,000/3,000a, Cordts found himself with just 220,000 chips and the in his hand. Cordts’ chips found their way into the middle of the felt, but he ran into the of Tom “tollgate” Grigg. A board was no help to Cordts and he was busted out.
Another short stack was eliminated soon after, Andrew Bassat. Bouskila opened to 50,000 from middle position and then called when Bassat three-bet all-in for 250,000. Bouskila turned over and found himself in a flip with the of Bassat. The flip was quickly won though, as the flop essentially locked up the hand. The turn and river completed the hand and Bassat headed out of the tournament area.
Fifth place was decided during the following level, Stastny losing his chips to Grigg. Left with just 14,000 chips after a clash with Grigg, Stastny lost the rest to him when he moved in preflop with and Grigg called with the . A final board reading was more than enough to bust out Stastny and he exited towards the cashier’s cage.
Oliver Gill’s tournament came to an end in fourth place, a position he has filled on a number of occasions at past Aussie Millions. Bouskila opened the betting then called when Gill three-bet all in for around 17 big blinds. Gill revealed to Bouskila’s and when the flop came down it was practically over for Gill. The and completed the board, and the hand, and Gill was knocked out from Event #5.
Pocket nines made an appearance once again at the final table, this time they busted out Jan Suchanek. Grigg opened to 60,000 from the button, Suchanek three-bet to 175,000 from the small blind and Bouskila four-bet all in for around 3-million chips! Grigg folded but Suchanek called off his remaining chips and the cards were revealed. Suchanek put his faith in and he needed to his against the of Bouskila. He failed to hit on a board, and heads-up was set.
Bouskila held a massive 4,250,000 to 925,000 chip lead over Grigg and it was always going to be a tough ask to turn around that deficit. Grigg did manage to double up but it was too little too late. The final hand saw Bouskila open to 80,000 then call Grigg’s three-bet to 220,000. The flop saw Grigg lead for 150,000 and Bouskila call. The turn saw Grigg check and Bouskila lead for 350,000. Grigg moved all-in and Bouskila quickly called. All Grigg could muster was but h was in a whole word of trouble against the of Bouskila. The on the river kept the kings of Bouskila in front and with that, Event #5 was completed, Bouskilla had won!
