Patrik Antonius Looking To Win $2m At Aussie Millions Final Table

After a total of six days play at the 2011 Aussie Millions Main Event, the original starting field of 721 players has now been reduced down to a final table of eight.
Those players taking their seats at the final table include three Brits, three Aussies, an American and of course a certain Finn by the name of Patrik Antonius. At stake at tomorrow’s final showdown is none other than a staggering $2 million first place prize, although every player is now guaranteed at least a $130,000 pay-day for just being there.
Nevertheless, all the remaining players left in the $10,600 buy-in event will now be hoping to go all the way and take down the prestigious tournament, and add their name to a list of past winners which includes such pros as Gus Hansen, Tony Bloom, Lee Nelson, and Alexander K.
Undoubtedly, capturing the public’s attention at the final table is Team Full Tilt Poker pro Patrik Antonius. Despite being primarily known as a high-stakes cash player with over $11.5 million in winnings at Full Tilt, Antonius is certainly also an accomplished tournament player, too. The Finn has even managed to notch up around $3 million from live tournaments since 2003, his biggest score coming in 2005 at the $15k Five Diamond World Poker Classic,  where he placed 2nd for $1,046,470.
Antonius is presently lying in 5th place at the final table with the current chip stacks as follows;
USA Randy Dorfman (3.895m), UK James Keys (2.395m), Aus David Gorr (2.37m), UK Sam Razavi (1.36m), Finland Patrik Antonius (1.3m), Aus Jeffrey Rossiter (1.235m), Aus Michael Ryan (960k) and UK prodigy Chris Moorman on 955k.
Chris Moorman is the second most recognisable name at the Aussie Millions final table, although it is mostly as a result of his online prowess which he has gained notoriety. Despite having earned $6,256,780 from tournaments online, Moorman has just $102,724 in live winnings, which he will hope to improve on in a big way despite being short-stacked.
The final table is slated to start tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. local time.
