The dates for the 2017 Aussie Millions Poker Championship have been announced. The festival will begin Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2017, and run until Monday, Jan. 30. Crown Melbourne will once again be the host, and the Main Event will continue its partnership as part of the PokerStars.net Asia-Pacific Poker Tour.
The Main Event will run Jan. 22-29 and feature three starting flights, and 2017 will mark the 20th year of the Aussie Millions Poker Championship.
"The 2017 Aussie Millions will again be the biggest and best to date, as effectively one of the top poker majors and a favorite amongst some of the most renowned players in the world," said Aussie Millions Tournament Director, Joel Williams. "The stage has never been brighter, and the team are all hard at work to make the next event the biggest and best yet."
The schedule for the 2017 series has yet to be released soon, but a note sent to the media said that more than 20 gold ring events can be expected.
"Aussie Millions is one of my favorite stops of the year," said Team PokerStars Pro member and three-time World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner Jason Mercier, who was at the Aussie Millions this year when the announcement for 2017 was made. "It's really hard to top the overall experience here."
