AUSSIE MILLIONS: O’Shea leads the way into day three

Day three of the 2012 Aussie Millions Main Event will start just two spots away from the money with 74 players returning to the felt in pursuit of a minimum payout of $15,000. The Main Event field was confirmed at 659, with 314 players taking their seats at the start of day two.

Appropriately for Australia Day, local player Tim O’Shea heads into day three with the chip lead but has the ominous figure of Phil Ivey close behind after another dominant display by the former Team Full Tilt pro.

Others still in contention for the AUD $1.6 million first prize include 2009 Aussie Millions $100,000 Hold’em Challenge winner David Steicke, two past Joe Hachem Deep Stack Series champions (Amanda De Cesare and Daniel Botta), Ben Savage, Sean O’Reilly, Mike Ivin, Joey Lawrence, Tom Grigg, Matt Wakeman, Kenna James and Dennis Huntly.

Past ANZPT champs Danny Chevalier, Grant Levy and Octavian Voegele, 2006 Aussie Millions Main Event winner Lee Nelson, 2012 Aussie Millions NLHE Rebuy victor Michael Pedley, 2011 WSOPE bracelet winner Andrew Hinrichsen and Australian Poker Hall of Famer Billy Argyros will also return today.

Players KOed on day two included Aaron Benton, Elliot Smith, Jai Kemp, Tino Lechich, Tom Dwan, Tony G, Jason Gray, Maria Ho, Peter Aristidou, Jay Kinkade, Leo Boxell, Annette Obrestad, Tyron Krost, JC Tran, Jason Mercier, Gus Hansen, Van Marcus, Stewart Scott and Jesse McKenzie.
