23-year-old bests a field of 745 to collect A$2 million main prize


The 2010 Aussie Millions main event concluded over the weekend with a local victory by Tyron Krost, a 23-year-old pro from from Bondi in Sydney who qualified via an online satellite on Party Poker, besting a star-studded field of 745 players over 7 days of poker.

The main prize win - worth A$2 million ($1 676 418) - is the biggest of three cashes in Krost's short career to date, and will enable him to concentrate more on poker than on his involvement with his family's furniture business. Krost's previous cashes were in two 2008 WSOP events and were worth a total of $38 536.

The main event final table included two Internet superstars in Sorel Mizzi and Annette Obrestad, along with Krost, Frederik Jensen, Kosta Varoxis, Peter Jetten, Steve Friedlander and Stephen Shelley.

Mizzi started as chip leader by a long way, but in the end managed only a third place finish worth A$ 715 000 as Krost worked steadily through his opponents, eliminating five of them.

The heads up saw Krost, holding a 2 to 1 chip advantage, across the table from Frederik Jensen. It was clearly the Aussie's day and he sent Jensen home with a second placing check for A$ 1 100 000, keeping the main prize of A$ 2 million to himself.

Commenting on his big win, Krost said, "This is totally unbelievable - it is beyond my wildest dreams. If it is a dream, I don't want to wake up! In total I spent $700 trying to qualify for a package and I have managed to turn that into AUD$2 million! I got some really good spots on the final table. When I needed a hand I seemed to get it."

"It just hasn't sunk in at all how much money I have just won. I have no idea what I am going to with it. I cashed at the World Series in 2008 but nothing like this."
