Play now!David Gorr won the 2011 Aussie Millions Event. He beat a field of 721 players and took home the $2 Million (AUD) first place prize. It was a popular win among the fans since Gorr is from Australia.
The chip leader at the start of the day was Randy Dorfman but he could not take the title. The most accomplished and feared player at the table was poker pro Patrik Antonius but he was the first player eliminated. Antonius’ kings ran into Gorr’s two pair. A short time later Gorr eliminated Chris Moorman. James Keys was able to eliminate Sam Razavi as his pocket seven’s held on against Ravazi’s ace-seven. Just a few hands later it was Gorr taking out Dorfman who began the day as the chip leader. Dorfman appeared to be in great shape with his pocket tens but an ace on the river paired Gorr’s ace-nine hand and Dorfman was gone in fifth place. The fourth place finisher was Michael Ryan who suffered a tough loss against Jeff Rossiter. Ryan had pocket nines against Rossiter’s ace-king and he was in great shape until the river when an ace hit and sent him home. It took some time before Rossiter was eliminated in third place as Gorr took him out with an ace high flush.
Gorr began his heads up battle against James Keys with about a five to one chip lead but it was not a quick elimination. In fact, Keys almost got even before a key hand occurred. Keys beat Gorr with a two pair hand of king-five against Gorr’s top pair. That win gave Keys a huge lead but Gorr never gave up and proved that a big chip lead does not mean an automatic win. He chipped away at Keys and eventually got the lead back. He ended up taking out Keys with a higher two pair that he hit on the river.
