2011 Aussie Millions Main Event Won by David Gorr

The Aussie Millions is always one of the most highly anticipated events in the poker industry and it’s slightly sad to see that this wonderfully exciting event has drawn to a close for this year. We’ll have to wait for another 12 months before we get to see more Aussie Millions Action. But for now, let us bask in the glory that was the final table action at the Aussie Millions Main Event, which culminated in the victory of David Gorr, a poker player from Australia. He managed to defeat James Keys at Heads Up and won himself a whopping AUD $2,000,000.

The Final Table

721 players signed up for the Aussie Millions main event, all hoping that they would make it to the very top and earn themselves a piece of that gigantic prize pool and all the fame that comes with it. Among the many hopefuls were several of the biggest names in the poker industry, with some even making it all the way to the final table. Sorel “Imper1ium” Mizzi is a special mention here because he almost made it to the final table but fell short of just one place. He was the last to depart before final table play began. The tournament had an eight-headed final table and Randy Dorfman, an American player, was the chip leader. Patrik Antonius, famous cash game player and Full Tilt Poker Pro, was arguably the most famous player on the final table but he was also the first one to get eliminated, much to the disappointment of fans.

Gorr was actually the one who managed to off Antonius and he was able to secure the lead after that. At seventh place was Chris “moorman1” Moorman, Brunson 10 Member, the last ‘pro’ standing, in a sense. He was followed by Samad Razavi at sixth place. Then Dorfman, despite his lead going into the final table, was also forced to walk away. At fourth place was Michael Ryan, and finally Jeff Rossiter.

Heads Up Play

With six people eliminated from the final table, the stage was finally set for the heads up battle. James Keys and David Gorr were the only ones left. Gorr held a huge chip lead, but Keys was relentless and slowly but steadily managed to grind his way to even before managing to land a huge lead with a pivotal hand. Gorr did not give up though, and patiently started to regain his lead. Then, in one of the most exciting hands in Aussie Millions History, the winner of the 2011 Main Event was decided. The flop was 7-6-3 and the turn was a K. Gorr had K-4 while Keys had 7-3. Encouraged by his newfound pair, Gorr raised. Keys, having a rather good hand himself, moved all in. Gorr called and everyone waited with bated breath for the river – which turned out to be a miraculous 4, giving Gorr the win.
