Last week, Australia had a million reasons to smile as far as poker is concerned. One of the reasons was hosting the most prestigious world poker series of poker Australian tournament. Another big reason to win is, they had their first gold win in their home ground.
The event that began 3 days ago attracted a total of 167 players from all over the world and after the day 1 and day 2 play which was super furious, the number of players drastically reduced. On the final day of the events, day3, the number of entrants remain at the beginning of the day was only seven players from the initial 167.
The day 3 action began with all the players putting their focus on the golden bracelet which would go down in history books as the first one to ever be won on home ground. After a lengthy time of play, the number of players reduced to just 3 players. Somehow, the remaining players created a huge disappointment amongst the Australian fans. This was because, at the beginning of the day, amongst the 7 entrants, 5 were Australian therefore the likelihood of an Australian wining was high. This hopes was later highly reduced as the first casualties of the day were 4 Australians.
After a short while , only 3 players remaining to battle it out for the bracelet and the cash prize. Amongst the remaining was a newzeland, Malaysian and Australian poker pros. After a lengthy and a vicious battle, the first bracelet in history went to the Malaysian pro,Lim. It was a triple joy for Lim as not only was he the champion, he was also the 1st player to ever win the bracelet in Australia and also this was his first bracelet win in his poker career.
