In spite of a low turnout for hot shots at the 2018 Aussie Millions, the coordinators have included another $25k purchase in occasion to the calendar this time in the craft of Pot-Limit Omaha, and Dominik Nitsche has Sam Greenwood wetting his jeans. Seven years back, US Special Forces executed Osama Bin Laden, the United Nations announced that the total populace had broken the seven billion stamp, and Erik Seidel went on the warmer of the century, winning $6.5m in a schedule year without trading in for cold hard currency the World Series of Poker Main Event.
Seidel's radiator started at the Aussie Millions where he beat a field of 20 contestants to win the AUD 250,000 Challenge for AUD 2,500,000 and completed 3/38 in the AUD 100,000 Challenge for AUD 625,000.

Sam Trickett has won more than $5m playing at the Crown, and Phil Ivey possessed the gaff procuring near $8m.
Seidel is as yet a noteworthy figure in the hot shot circuit. Ivey adheres to the Triton Poker Tour. Trickett has his MILLIONS responsibilities.

The AUD 250,000 kicked the bucket. Rather, their offering has developed. It appears the Crown Melbourne have confidence in their hot shot crew.
