The 2016 Aussie Millions
Last year’s series saw some of the game’s most talented players walk away champions. Ari Engel defeated WPT commentator Tony Dunst heads-up for the Main Event title, winning $1.6 million. The runner-up won a cool $1 million.
Steve O’Dwyer was crowned champion of the $250,000 Challenge in a four-way chop with David Peters, Connor Drinan, and Fabian Quoss. Darryll Fish, Stephen Chidwick, Chance Kornuth, and James Obst all won Aussie Millions tournaments in 2016.
