Many people who are aware of the Aussie Millions, a.k.a. the Australian Poker Championship, know that it is the biggest tournament known to the Southern Hemisphere. Held in Melbourne’s prestigious Crown Hotel, the event has become one of the most anticipated poker events of the year as the prize pool topped $7.4 million in 2008. So make no mistake; this is no backwoods, rinky dink tournament!
As the Land Down Under’s premier poker event, the Aussie Millions has attracted some of poker’s biggest names over the years in players like 2007 champion Gus Hansen, Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Joe Hachem, Nenad Medic, Shannon Shorr, Kristy Gazes, Erik Seidel, and John Juanda. And this year Pacific Poker wants you to join that list of names.
The way Pacific Poker plans to make it happen is by giving out a $16,000 prize package every two weeks that covers things like your seat in the Main Event and all of the other expenses that come along with traveling to Melbourne, Australia. Normally a buy-in to the Aussie Millions is AU$10,000 + AU$500 but with a Pacific Poker prize package it is completely free!
In order to win this fabulous prize package to the Aussie Millions, as well as have the opportunity to check out some cool scenery in the Outback, download Pacific Poker using the POKERWORKS bonus code. The reason for using the POKERWORKS bonus code is so that you will not only have an opportunity to win the $16,000 prize package, but so you can also get the 100% deposit bonus up to $400.
After you have done this, you are now able to access the Pacific Poker lobby where the qualifiers and satellites for the Aussie Millions Qualifier 2009 are currently running. In order to find the qualifiers and satellites after accessing the lobby, go to the “Live Events tab” and you will find tourneys that run as low as $4 + $0.40. Considering that the buy-ins to the Main Event of the Aussie Millions Qualifier 2009 are $500, quite a few people will be attracted to these extremely cheap satellites.
And considering that you could win over a million and a half Australian Dollars in the Aussie Millions, it seems like a great idea to try and get in the tournament. Last year’s champion Alexander Kostritsyn took home AU$1,650,000 for his win. The next Aussie Millions 2009 Qualifier takes place on September 6th at 10:00 a.m. GMT so hurry and get in because you could be the next Alexander Kostritsyn.
