David Steicke Wins Aussie Millions High Rollers Challenge, Main Event Underway

Ashleigh-Sudholz-1 David Steicke, an Aussie ex-pat commodities trader living in Hong Kong, outlasted 22 of the best, or rich enough to cover the buy-in, poker players at the Aussie Millions $100,000 High Rollers Challenge.

Steicke bested top pros like Phil Ivey, Erik Seidel, John Juanda, and Patrik Antonius to grab 1.2 mil in kangaroo dollars for the win. Tony Bloom was the runner up ($600,000 AUD) and the spectacularly breasted JC Tran (at right looking a lot like 2008 Australian Swimwear Model of the Year Ashleigh Sudholz) finished third ($300,000 AUD). Dan Shak, Beth's husband, was the final player to cash out ($200,000 AUD) in the 23-player tournament.

A huge fan favorite in Australia for one reason or another, the 46-year-old Steicke first made noise on that side of the world's poker scene in 2007 when he finished third at the 2007 APPT Macau High Roller Event. 

With the High Rollers event over, the Aussie Millions Main Event is under way and already on to Day 1C. This fruity guy is currently the chipleader with 175,375 in chips. Patrik Antonius is second with 139,750. The rest of the players remaining have less.
