$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Opening Event

Day 1b of the Opening Event Set to Kick Off

Aussie Millions Opening Event Day 1b

Welcome back to the Crown Poker Room in Melbourne, Australia for continued action of the 2012 Aussie Millions!

The late night shenanigans of Day 1a on Event 1: $1,100 Opening Event have entered the record books and after only 8 hours of rest, it's back to play, as Day 1b begins in just a short while.

There were 274 players who made the trek onto the felt last night and today is expected to host a similar amount of players. Only 34 survived Day 1a and due to the unique "repecharge" format, those players will have the opportunity to come back today and do it all again.

There were a couple of stacks that reached over 200,000 in chips last night, with Australia's Tam Truong and Alex Lynskey setting the bench mark for the Day 1b players.

It's all kicking off at 12.30 pm AEST today, so make sure to follow all the action, live, from the opening event of the 2012 Aussie Millions!
