AU$10,600 Main Event

Seat 5 - Matthew Wakeman (33, Australia), 4,010,000

Matthew Wakeman

Describing himself as a "Full time dad that plays a lot of poker," Matthew Wakeman told PokerNews that January in Melbourne is the best time of year to visit the amazing city, with the Aussie Millions being a "fantastic tournament in all aspects."

From Sydney, Wakeman occupies the dangerous third-place on the chip counts as they enter the final table and will have to be aware of short stacks doubling up as well as big stacks looking to exert their pressure on him.

This cash moves Wakeman over US$1m in lifetime live earnings, with his biggest cash so far being a WSOP International Circuit ring he won in Sydney in December.
