Mustapha Kanit Records Historic Second Victory At 2014 Aussie Millions

Mustapha Kanit Records Historic Second Victory At 2014 Aussie MillionsItaly’s Mustapha Kanit has just accomplished what no other players has ever managed before, namely to win two Aussie Millions tournaments in one series. Fresh off his victory at Event 2# $1,100 NLHE/PLO, in which he defeated a field of 1,302 players to claim the $196,000 first place prize, Mustapha Kanit has now taken down Event 4# $1,100 NLHE Six-Max event, besting a field of 494 players along the way to add a further $104,000 to his earnings.
In addition to his impressive Aussie  Millions achievement, Mustapha Kanit’s latest win means he now boasts around $1.8 million in live tournament earnings, to go with the $1,462,671 he has won online playing under the screen name Lasagnaaammm
By the time the Six-Max event reached its final table, Mustapha Kanit was in second place behind Australian poker pro Daniel Neilson. Following Tanya Phu’s exit in 6th ($19,870), Paul Altis in 5th ($30,250), and Grayson Ramage in 4th ($40,620), Kanit then scored his first elimination when his pocket nines bested Daniel Neilson’s A-8 preflop shove to send the Aussie to the rails in 3rd ($51,040), and usher in the heads-up phase of the competition.
As  the final battle commenced, Tam Truong held a 2.76m to 2.18m chip advantage over Kanit, who was then able to reverse the positions so he held a 4 to 1 advantage, when the defining hand was played. Truong (Ah-Kd) had shoved all in on a 9s-Jc-8c-Ks board, only to be called by Kanit holding Qc-10c. No card could now save Tam Truong and just like that he finished the runner-up for a $68,880 payday, whilst Kanit had taken down his historic second Aussie Millions title of the series.
Final Table Payouts:
1st: Mustapha Kanit – $104,000
2nd: Tam Truong – $68,880
3rd: Daniel Neilson – $51,040
4th: Grayson Ramage – $40,620
