Tony Bloom is an icon at the Aussie Millions. In 2004 he won this very event, and since then he's been back year in and year out, even competing in the various High Roller tournaments with remarkable results. To put it mildly, Bloom has an impressive Aussie Millions résumé. Unfortunately for him, he's not off to a good start here today.
