Let's have a look at today's Poker Nation news post about poker in India.
Australian Adrian Stone was victorious in Event #13: $1,150 Terminator on Jan. 22 at Aussie Millions for AUD$43,275 in prize money. He overcame a field of 347 runners, who created a complete prize pool of AUD$355,675.
‘The Terminator’ format deals $500 bounties on the head of each player in the event. Players were allowed one re-entry.
The cash total at Aussie Millions represents almost all of the money Stone has earned in his entire live tournament career, with this score representing the most he has won in local currency. Additionally, he finished second in a $1,100 event in 2013 for AUD$31,360. It is Stone’s second cash at this year's Aussie Millions after he got 86th in the opening event for AUD$3,850.
A couple of American players, Dylan Wilkerson and Nipun Java, were also at the final table. Each has just under $2 million in tournament cashes but neither was able to crack the top two. Wilkerson dropped out in third to leave Stone battling heads up with fellow Aussie Amit Shory. It was Wilkerson's second Aussie Millions final table and first since 2012.
Local players comprised the majority of those in the money — only seven non-Aussies were among the 32 players who cashed.
