Aussie Millions (also known as Aussie Millions: Poker Championship) was a poker series where it was held at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Austalia; featuring three major events called The $100K Challenge, The "Heads-Up" Challenge and The "Aussie Millions" Main Event, twenty-four of the world's biggest and richest players competed for a total prize pool of more than $15 Million Australian dollars in this short-lived 10 episode series.
Viewed by many of the purest form of poker, Heads Up is played one on one with each round being the best of three matches. Highly competitive, the tournament reveals the psychology of the game as competitors try to out-wit, out-stare and out-draw their opponents. For one of the richest prizes in poker, a field of 746 players anted up the AUD$10,500 buy-in for the Main Event, creating a prize pool of AUD$7.46 million with $2m going to the winner. The Aussie Million Poker Championship tournament is held at the Crown Casino, Melbourne's premiere entertainment complex, which covers the equivalent of two city blocks.
