I'm still waiting to hear from the garage as to the cost of the repairs to my little pony, latest news was that the drive shaft will need to be replaced.

I played the short handed comp on Blue Sq last night $100 rebuy, getting to the break on 12k without the need for a rebuy or add-on, just after the break I'm on the bb with AJ suited, actionjackson1 has raised on the button, he's the chip leader with 32k, I reraise him putting in 40% of my stack, he thinks and then re-pops me putting me all-in, I figure this for squeeze play then I respond with an insta shove to his insta call, I'm drawing a bit thin here when he flips JJ, No ace so adieus from me.

The Aussie Millions 2009 from the Crowne Plaza Hotel are drawing to a close, they are down to the last 14 at the dinner break.
They are playing down to the final 8 today while these are the chip counts as the players go and feed themselves (cant help wishing I was there).

British intrest lies with Barny Boatman and Richard Ashby who are still in the mix, Peter Rho gets a healthy double up just on the dinner break with AA v AK and is the current chip leader with 2 1/4 million

Here are the final table chip counts for the final table of the Aussie Millions 2009

Sweden's hopes for multiple representation at the Main Event final table were dashed early when Day 3 chip leader Michael Tureniec started freefalling through the counts. He ended up on the rail in 19th place, most certainly a disappointing finish. The other Swede in the field, Annica Ivert, fared better, but ultimately was busted in 11th place after getting her chips in with the best preflop hand.

That left room for others to make a charge. Aussie Stewart Scott picked up the baton and started sprinting with it, moving up, up, up through the counts. He is the far and away chip leader heading into the final table after using his big stack to hammer away at all of the smaller stacks on his table as play tightened. Scott finished the day with 4.52 million chips, almost double his nearest competitor and roughly a third of the total chips in play. He has given Australia its best shot ever of crowning its own Aussie Millions Main Event champion.

Tomorrow we move upstairs out of the poker room, to the television studio for the televised final table. Fortune and glory, Dr. Jones, await the winner of the 2009 Aussie Millions Main Event. Who will it be?
