A Long Way from Home

[user101598] • Level 1: 50-100, 0 ante

For many poker players from outside of Australia, it takes a long time to get to the land down under. From the East Coast of the United States, it takes roughly a day to fly here. From Western Europe, it takes roughly 22 hours.

The flight from Johannesburg, South Africa is a bit shorter, averaging around 13.5 hours. That's where Raymond Rahme, who finished third in the 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event, flew to the 2014 Aussie Millions from.

Rahme is grinding away on Table 50, looking to record his first cash since April of 2013, where he finished 17th in the WSOP Asia-Pacific Main Event. The South African is a big fan of the Aussie Millions, calling the tournaments "unbelievable."

"The Aussie Millions is one of the best tournaments in the world."
