Tyron Krost Aussie Millions winner

3:09. Tyron Krost is the new Aussie Millions champion!!

2:41. We got two Party Poker players heads up! Fredrik started the raising by betting $250,000 from early position. Tyron reraised from the small blind to $775,000 and Mizzi went all in. Fredrik got out of the way and Tyron called. The cards revealed sevens for Mizzi and As Ks for Tyron. Flop comes K 10 5 all hearts which is good news to Tyron. Mizzi has no hearts with his sevens and are only drawing to another seven. Turn 8d and finally a 2h on the river and the room goes berserk!

1:05. Krost just managed to lose an all in against the short stacked Kosta Varoxis. This is how the hand played out:

Money went all in preflop Krost holding Ah 4h vs Varoxis Qc 10c. Krost manages to duck all the way to the river when the dreaded Q came. One hand later Varoxis managed to double up against Mizzi as well and are now in third on the leaderboard. Our Party Players are still holding on to first and second place on the leaderboard.

Board came 9d 7h 3h. Turn Qd and river 3c and Frederik moves up to second in the leaderboard. Now there is two Party players at the top of the leaderboard.

24:12. Finally after playing with five players for four hours Peter Jetten was kicked out by the Party Poker player Tyron Krost. Peter Jetten reraised Krost raised all in and got an immediate call. Krost holding two red tens was ahead of Jetten’s Kd 3d. Flop As Jc 2d didn’t give Jetten any additional outs. 7s on the turn and finally a 5h on the river sent Jetten home to Canada. Krost now moved up to the chip lead!

Action folded around to Anette who went all in on the button. Krost went into the tank again and finally made a very silent smooth call by sliding his chips in. Anette held Ah Jc and Krost had 77.

We managed to get a quick word with Frederik Brink Jensen before the start of the final table and he revealed the following:

“This is the biggest one I have ever played and the first one in front of the cameras. I’ve had big tournaments results online though. Last year I actually managed to win the Danish Online Championships and have also cashed in the WSOP twice but nothing this big.” Brink continues… “I think it will be a tough final table but should be well positioned to go to heads up or at least third place. Who knows, anything can happen”

Our other qualifier, Sydney sider Tyron Krost, also revealed that it’s his first time with the big boys and girl (Anette Obrestad, editor’s note) but he believes in making it to the top 3.

Once again they have been positioned next to each other, this being the second day they are neighbours at the table, what are the odds of that?

To give you a quick recap of the chips:

•Seat 1: Sorel Mizzi – 6,033,000

•Seat 2: Stephen Shelley – 991,000

•Seat 3: Annette Obrestad – 1,349,000
