Aussie Millions Event #6 Final Table Action
Ari Ghezelbash was the first elimination, bringing the tournament down to its final six players. This was Ghezelbash's 12th Aussie Millions cash and his first since 2017, taking home A$12,385.
Coming into the final table as the shortest stack, Travis Endersby had chipped up somewhat, and doubled his 200,000 chip stack when he got kings in against the jacks of Michel Bouskila and held to score a vital double-up.
Endersby then grabbed himself another double through Tou. Endersby was in bad shape with queen-king against the ace-king of Tou, but a queen on the river kept him alive.
Bouskila had scored small double of his own through Tou shortly after but was eliminated with ace-king against the pocket aces of Bart Lybaert. Bouskila cashed for A$17,960.
This boosted the Belgian into the chip lead with five players left but Tou quickly wrestled it back with the elimination of Gautam Dhingra. Dhingra held king-queen against the ace-four of Tou. An ace on the flop was enough to eliminate Dhingra in fifth place for A$24,930.
Endersby then doubled through Lybaert with pocket nines against the Belgian's ace-king for his third double at the final table, moving him into the chip lead in the process.
Ong Dingxiang had been pretty quiet at the final table, despite coming in as the chip leader and was down to ten big blinds in the big blind when Endersby shoved pocket nines. However, it was Tou who called with sevens and was eliminated in fourth place. The start-of-day chip leader takes home A$48,905.
Both Endersby and Lybaert were still locked at the top of the chip counts, but that would change with the elimination of Dingxiang shortly after the break. King-high was enough to send the final table chip leader home in third for A$48,905.
That gave Endersby a 3:1 chip lead going into the heads-up. However, Endersby called off with second pair to double up his opponent who held top pair, and Lybaert used the right mix of aggression and timing to chip up.
Eventually, it was Lybaert who emerged victorious adding an Aussie Millions ANTON Championship Ring to his poker resume.
