The final hand of the 2014 Aussie Millions Bounty has entered the record books!

Here are the chip counts!

Craig Duffy – 2,800,000
Reza Vakili – 1,100,000

Dean Blatt Eliminated in 3rd Place ($36,000)

Dean BlattDean Blatt (pictured) lost a few chips since he doubled up. He had exactly 435,000 when he three-bet all in from the big blind after Reza Vakili opened the button to 60,000. Vakili called and the cards were turned over.

Vakili: Q hearts10 hearts
Blatt: 3 diams3 hearts

Blatt wasn’t in bad shape, but that changed on the 10 diams4 spades2 clubs flop. No help on the 5 clubs turn and the 9 hearts river and with that Blatt was sent home in 3rd place for a $36,000 score.

Then there were two!

Sweaty Double for Blatt

Dean Blatt moved all in from the button for just over 300,000.

Reza Vakili flat-called out of the small blind. 

“Had to call,” joked Vakili as he tabled J diams9 diams. “It’s my brother’s favourite hand.”

Blatt had K clubs8 hearts so was in good shape.

Then the dealer flipped over a J clubsK diams8 diams – sick sweat.

Blatt had two pair, but with all those diamonds and a pair of jacks for Vakili, Blatt needed to dodge some cards.

And dodge some cards he did as a 5 spades turn and a 6 hearts river meant he had doubled up.

Duffy Pushes Blatt Around

Dean Blatt had the button when he opened it up to 60,000. Craig Duffy called from the big blind and the dealer spread out a Q diamsA diamsK spades flop. Both players checked here and a K hearts was dealt on the turn.

This time Duffy led for 100,000 and Blatt called.

The 9 clubs river would see Duffy move his monster stack all in.

Blatt went into the tank. He counted down his stack several times, finding himself to have around 370,000 in chips. Eventually he folded and the pot went to Duffy.

Duffy has well over 3 million in chips – more than three quarters of all chips in play. 

Level Up: Blinds 30,000/60,000, Ante 3,000

The 8 spadesQ hearts4 spades flop gave Duffy a pair of queens, but the 6 clubs turn and the 6 diams river were both safe.

Wolters Down Under Three Hundred

Extended Break for Vakili

That’s something we haven’t seen at every final table.

Reza Vakili just took a look at the clock, saw 6 minutes left in the level, pushed a stack of 1,000-denomination chips forward, told the dealer it was for the antes and left.

He’s going to lose a couple of blinds and some antes, but maybe the extra five minutes will refresh him enough to make up for that. 

Shorty Jams

Derek Wolters has been the short stack for quite some time.

He recently three-bet jammed from the big blind for around 380,000 after Craig Duffy had opened it up to 50,000 from under the gun. Duffy thought about it for a little while, then folded his Qx-Jx face up. With that Wolters added some needed chips to his stack. 

Deal Chat

Reza Vakili has just asked the table if they are interested in a deal.

The big-stacked Craig Duffy immediately declined. 

Set of Kings for Reza

Vakili held K spadesK hearts and by the time a turn had rolled out on a 8 diamsK diams9 spades3 diams board, there was already over 500,000 in the middle and Vakili moved all in for 351,000. Duffy tank-folded and plenty of new chips went to Vakili.

“Would you have called a big raise preflop?” asked Vakili.

Duffy said “no.”

This time it was the short-stacked Jordan Tentori (pictured) all in preflop holding 5 diams5 clubs against the 10 diams10 clubs of Dean Blatt. The 10 spadesJ clubs4 clubs flop was not good for Tentori as Blatt had hit a set. The 7 clubs turn left Tentori drawing draw and with a brick on the river, he was eliminated with an $18,000 score.

Blatt is now up to just over 1 million in chips, which gives him the second largest stack behind Craig Duffy's 2 million.

After examining the stacks of Tentori and Blatt, Wolters slid out a large stack of 25,000-denomination chips – more than 500,000 in chips, but regardless, more than enough to put Blatt and Tentori all in.

It didn’t take long for Blatt and Tentori to fold and with that the pot went to Wolters. 

Reza Gets Aggressive

Reza Vakili, from the hijack raised it up preflop and John Tsagaris was the lone caller from the button. The two players watched on as the dealer spread out a 3 spades5 clubsQ hearts flop.

Slow Start

The final eight players here in the Bounties have had a slow start today. There hasn’t really been a flop since Christopher Colanari moved all in during the hand you can find below.

There was one hand that looked like it was going to be action-filled as Celina Lin went quite deep into the tank after Reza Vakili three-bet to 52,000 from the button after Lin had opened to 22,000 from the cut off. Lin ultimately decided to let her cards go and it was back to the grind. 

First blood for Colaneri

It's Bounty Hunting Time!

Aussie Millions

Welcome to our coverage of the 2014 Aussie Millions from the Crown Poker Room in Melbourne, Australia.

The Aussie Millions is the most prestigious tournament series in the Southern Hemisphere with 20 championship events this year highlighted by the $250,000 and $100,000 High Rollers Challenges and, of course, the $10,600 Aussie Millions Main Event which this year forms part of the the Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT).

Event #7 of the series is the $1,650 No Limit Holdem Bounty Event. This feature event has proven to be one of the popular in the history of the Aussie Millions. Last year it was young gun Dylan Honeyman who overcame 355 players to win the Aussie Millions title and a sizable $120,000 first-place prize.

Another huge prize pool is expected in the Bounty Event this year so stay tuned to Poker Asia Pacific as we bring you live updates of all the action, include chip counts and photo, from the final table of Event #7 of the 2014 Aussie Millions.
