Two big names in the field today are Morten Mortensen and Michael O'Grady. Especially in a time where intercontinental travel is more or less off-limits, spotting Danish star Mortensen in the field might be a bit of a surprise. Rocking over $1.7M in lifetime winnings on The Hendon Mob, Mortensen has been in Australia for a while now and cashed the Marconi Cup here back in December.
Sydney's very own Michael O'Grady boasts a similar resumé of that of Mortensen, having cashed for nearly $1.1M in his career. Last year at the 2020 Aussie Millions, O'Grady won the A$1,050 Accumulator for a massive payday of A$188,860.
We'll be keeping an eye out for the pair as the day progresses here at The Poker Palace.
