The Year It All Began: A Look Back at the 2003 Aussie Millions

• Level 1: 50-100, 0 ante

The Crown's Aussie Millions Poker Championship is celebrating their 10th Anniversary this year, and we thought it might be fun to take a look back at year's past throughout the Main Event, starting with the year when it all began . . . 2003.

While the numbers were small, at least compared to today's standard, there were some familiar names in action who still compete today including Leo Boxell, Mel Judah, and Harry Demetriou, just to name a few.
