Aussie Million Main Event updates

When the dust settled a total of 732 players registered for the 2016 Aussie Millions Main Event, the fourth highest attendance total in the tournament’s near two decade run.

Heading into Day 3 the tournament is down to just 154 players, with a number of notable names still in the hunt: James Obst, Samantha Abernathy, Mustapha Kanit, Philipp Gruissem, Tony Dunst, Ari Engel, Stephen Chidwick, Tom Hall, Joe Hachem, Fabian Quoss, and Xuan Liu.

80 players will make the money, with the winner of the tournament receiving $1.6 million, while the runner-up will pocket $1 million.

Quick Hitters

- The World Series of Poker will be hosting a town hall on Twitch tomorrow at 1 PM.¬† Jack Effel and Ty Stewart will preside over the public forum, where they’ll field questions and comments from the poker community as they try to improve the WSOP experience.

- New Jersey’s online gambling industry has undergone a number of changes (probably more than you think) in the two-plus years since the state’s online gambling sites went live¬† in November of 2013.

- Lithuania has blacklisted some pretty well known online gaming sites, including William Hill and Unibet.

- Former Full Tilt Poker CEO and bane of the online poker community Ray Bitar got married recently. Last we heard, Bitar managed to avoid jail time due to deteriorating health that required a heart transplant.

- The daily fantasy sports has apparently decided to go to the mattresses against their political opposition. A new ad blasting California Assemblyman Marc Levine for his opposition to DFS is now being aired. I’m not sure how effective the ad will be in ousting Levine, as DFS doesn’t feel like it has the potential to reach single-issue-voter status.
