2008 Aussie Millions: Some Russian Won It

AussiemillionsThe 2008 Aussie Millions Main Event is done, and Some Russian came out of nowhere to take it down.

The final table began with Michael [Ctrl + V] Chrisanthopoulos as a massive chip leader, 129 year-old Antonio Casale repping second, and poker legend Erik Seidel waiting in the wings.

But unlike WWII without U.S. America's help, the Cold War, the 1980 Winter Olympics, Rocky IV, Red Dawn, the Afghan War, and Boris Yeltsin's kidney, the Soviet Union actually came out on top in this one, as Some Russian defeated the field of 780 players to bank $1,650,000.

Some Russian defeated Erik Seidel ($1,000,000) for the title. Michael [Ctrl + P] Chrisanthopoulos finished third ($700,000). The rest of the final table payouts were: Peter Ling ($500,000), Nino Marotta ($400,000), Antonio Casale ($300,000), Peter Mobbs ($225,000).
