A short-stacked Dmitry Trokhmanenko was all in preflop holding and up against the of Emad Moaref. Trokhmanenko was at risk and need of some help, which he found on the flop; however, it also provided Moaref an open-ended straight draw.
As fate would have it, the spiked on the turn to give Moaref the lead yet again. Now Trokhmanenko needed the board to pair on the river. Unfortunately for him, it was not mean to be as the blanked. Trokhmanenko was eliminated in 75th place, bringing us just two eliminations from the bubble.
The action started of with Stuart Kerr raising to 15,000. Phil Ivey was directly to Kerr's left and he three-bet to 40,000. The action got folded back to Kerr who quickly put in 115,000. Within half a second Phil Ivey announced he was all-in. Everyone expected Kerr to call rather quickly but he kept thinking with just 123,000 chips left behind.
Since it was the first hand of the day Ivey was still busy stacking his chips as Kerr was pondering what to do. After two minutes he open folded and seven jaws drop onto the table rail. "Will you please show", Kerr asked Ivey who replied with, "I don't like showing my hands", as he produced a little smirk. "Come on!", Oscar Kemps shouted from the other side of the room judging Kerr's move immediately. We will never know what Ivey had but Kerr will probably dream about this hand if he ends up not making the money.
As we all know Ivey didn't came here to fold, and we will probably seeing a lot more of this fast paced action!
The action has been flying fast this morning! Within a few hands we heard the first "player all in" cry from the tournament director. The player was Jimmy Sui and he moved his 10,000-chip stack all in from under the gun holding . Oliver Speidel was in the big blind and he made the call holding . The board ran out and it was a double up for Sui.
Just a few moments later and the all in cry came from across the tournament floor. This time it was the shortest stack coming into the day, Patrick Lui. There were two players still involved in the pot while Lui wated to see his fate. The board ran out and when Lui turned over his , he would triple to survive with triple what he started the day with.
It's time for Day 3 of the Aussie Millions Main Event and we are ready to go! Play will start with just 75 players and 72 will get paid. Bubble play will start right away and we expect to see some big clashes as play goes on.
It's Moving Day today, because the winner will not be determined, but we will get a good look at who will have a shot at winning this thing. Everyone will be looking at Phil Ivey who start the day second in chips. Will it be another Ivey fairytale, or are we going to see some new names surface? Jason Koon, David Steicke, Lee Nelson and Michael Tureniec are also still in the game just like local favorites Andrew Hinrichsen and Michael Pedley.
