Hometown player Adrian Stone took down Event #13: $1,150 Terminator on Jan. 22 at Aussie Millions for AUD$43,275 in prize money. He defeated a field of 347 runners, who created a total prize pool of AUD$355,675.
The Terminator format meant $500 bounties on the head of each player in the event. Players were allowed one reentry.
Monies won at Aussie Millions represent almost all of the money Stone has banked in his live tournament career, with this score representing the most he has won in local currency. He also finished second in an $1,100 event in 2013 for AUD$31,360. It's his second cash at this year's Aussie Millions after he got 86th in the opening event for AUD$3,850.
Dylan Wilkerson and Nipun Java, a couple of American players, were also at the final table. Each has just under $2 million in tournament cashes but neither was able to crack the top two. Wilkerson busted in third to leave Stone battling heads up with fellow Aussie Amit Shory. It was Wilkerson's second Aussie Millions final table and first since 2012.
Locals comprised the majority of those in the money — just seven non-Aussies were among the 32 players who cashed.
Numbered events coming up in the next couple of days include $1,150 No Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha and $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em.
