Jack Sinclair on "Outrageously Friendly" Melbourne and the Excitement of the Aussie Millions
2017 was a breakout year for Jack Sinclair; finishing eighth in the WSOP Main Event, and following it up by winning the €25,000 German Poker Championships Super High Roller.
And after a deep run in the PCA, Sinclair is now in Melbourne for his first taste of the Aussie Millions.
"The people here are outrageously friendly."
"2018 has started well for me," said Sinclair. "PCA was a lot of fun, and having already cashed in my first event here at the Aussie Millions is very encouraging!"
"Melbourne is a great place to be, especially in January, as it is usually pretty depressing in Europe right around now. The people here are outrageously friendly. Being a Brit it is was initially a little disconcerting having so many strangers talk to me, but I am getting used to it. "
Jack Sinclair is currently playing in the A$25,000 High Roller at the Aussie Millions. Follow his progress and all the other updates from Australia in the Aussie Millions Live Reporting in the PokerNews Live Reporting section.
Sinclair said that everyone he had asked said that the Aussie Millions is one of their favorite stops on the tour, and it was one that he was excited about.
"My short, medium, and long-term goal is always the same: trophies."
"The actual poker here is incredible, not like anywhere else. It seems like Australia has been isolated from the rest of the poker world for some time, they have a lot of crazy rules, and the Aussies play a very unconventional style. At the same time, it feels a lot like Vegas in the summer, which may possibly be due to the heat, but there is a real sense of excitement & grandeur surrounding the series."
And what does the future hold for the Brit after such a successful 2017?
"My short, medium, and long-term goal is always the same: trophies. I don't set financial goals for poker, and if I do, they are very modest. I just want to make enough to keep playing. My only concern is getting better... and winning trophies for the glory!"
