I would try, but I dont think I could get through the 20+ hr plane ride. It sounds like a blast and I have always wanted to go to Australia, but unfortunatly you will be without me.lol.

Trying almost every night on Full Tilt

Hey MG,
I am from Melbourne, born and raised there, but moved to the U.S. about 4yrs ago and desperatley want to move back.
Crown is a great casino but I only started playing poker this year so never played when I was back in Melbourne.
Anyways, yeah I would love to play in the Aussie Millions but dont have the cash yet for any $ satellites so Im playing on the Full Tilt freerolls.
Each night, expect on Thu nights (I think) Full Tilt has 2freerolls and sometimes have one or two earlier in the day or evening.
Ive been playing in both the nightly freerolls, the 1st one you have to finish in 1-9 place and the second 1-36. Then you go to round two tourney and same structure to then get to a thir round which then has 7 seats to the Aussie Millions including trave and hotel (MG you might get a free Met train ticket hehe)
Check Full Tilt for all the details as I probably got some of the above wrong.
So far I havent got past round 1 but finish 39th once, just 3 away from getting to next round and finish in 40-50 half a dozen times. I will keep trying!!
Anyways its a fun freeroll.

I got through Round 1

Well I did it last night, my first success in a online tournament.
I made it through the Round 1 game of the Full Tilt Aussie Millions freeroll.
Not only did I did I make it in the top 36 which gives you entrance to the Round 2 tournament but I finished in 1st place.
I wasnt even tired when it wrapped up at about 5:30am EST :)
Now Im getting ready for the Round 2 game that starts at 5:30pm EST.

Well my first attempt at the Aussie Millions Rd.2 freeroll didn't go to well, went out of the tournament early.
So as a true crazy online poker player who stays up till 5am I tried again and tonight (Well Monday morning now lol) I again made it through Rd.1 again. So now I get another chance at the next Rd.2 tournament which will be this Sat 09/16 at 5:30PM EST.
Here is a screen grab of my result. My Full Tilt name is iboing.

Hope we can get more CC people in this tournament, be cool to have multiple CC people win Rd.3 :)

Its easy believe me - have flown to new zealand (and back :p) im 6ft 4 and still managed to get a few hours of kip in.

Could try and make it out to see England retain the Ashes if not for the poker :rolleyes::):)

*Its where i saw my 1st ever Simpsons cartoon, 40,000ft above Melbourne at 5am, February 1993 :)

Enjoy and Peace

Normally, I dont think I would ever play in the Aussie Millions just because the chances of winning are quite slim because of the number of entrants, even if you are an amazing player.

But a couple weeks ago I won an all expenses paid prize package online (after an extremely tough series of tournaments) to Australia and play in the main event, so there was no way I could turn that down!

Im probably one of the youngest that will be on the field, but im curious to see how I contest against some of the best players in the world :) Who know? Maybe I'll get lucky!
