Crown’s Aussie Millions Poker Championship has concluded for another year and it was a local South Melbournian who won the coveted Main Event. For winner, Manny Stavropoulos, the triumph was both a mental and physical marathon, after he overcame a field of 648 entrants from around the globe, in the $10,600 no-limit hold’em poker event.

The Aussie Millions Main Event began on Sunday January 25 and took eight days to complete, with the final duel being played out in front of a packed house and a worldwide audience, with the action streamed online. Millions more will watch the final crescendo of the 2015 Aussie Millions Poker Championship Main Event, along with the finals of the $100,000 Challenge and $250,000 Challenge, telecast Australia-wide every Tuesday and Wednesday night from 11pm for six weeks beginning on May 5 at 11pm on ONE HD.

The runner up was Lennart Uphoff of Bavaria, Germany. Despite the disappointment of defeat, he could take great pride in a noble effort that resulted in overcoming all but one of the 648 players who began their bid for Aussie Millions victory. After a head’s up deal was made, Uphoff collected a supreme consolation prize of over AUD$1,200,000 in prize money.

A number of notables also became victors across the 21 events, including poker legend Phil Ivey – winner of the LK Boutique $250,000 Challenge; Australian Poker Hall of Famer Greame ‘Kiwi G’ Putt – winner of the $1,150 Australian Poker Hall of Fame event; Daniel Neilson – winner of the $2,500 NLHE 6-Max Shot Clock Event; and Richard Yong – winner of the $100,000 Challenge.

The 2016 Aussie Millions Poker Championship dates have also been announced. The event will begin on Wednesday January 13, 2016 and run for 20 consecutive days. It will also mark the eighteenth consecutive year that the event has been held at Crown Melbourne.

The main event is scheduled to begin on Sunday January 24 and run for eight days. Due to the large number of entrants expected for this feature event it will include three starting Day 1 flights, from January 24-26.

“The eighteenth year of the Aussie Millions will be the biggest and best to date, as effectively one of the top poker majors and a favourite amongst some of the most renowned players in the world, and the stage has never been brighter, and the team are all hard at work to make the eighteenth event the biggest and best yet,” said Aussie Millions Tournament Director, Joel Williams.
