$12 000 sponsorships to the southern hemisphere's biggest poker event on offer

PartyPoker.com has announced that for the third year running players can qualify online for the Aussie Millions, the southern hemisphere's premier poker event.

The Aussie Millions takes place between 6 - 19 January 2007 at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, with an estimated prize pool of over Aus$5 000 000.

For each online qualifier, PartyPoker.com is offering a package valued at US$12 000, which includes the main event buy-in, accommodation at the opulent Crown Entertainment Complex and spending money.

Last year, two PartyPoker.com players made it to the final table during the first live event, scooping over Aus$600 000 in prize money between them. One of these players was Shannon Shorr, who took his online skills into the live environment and is now regarded as one of the finest players on the world scene. The winner in 2006 was Kiwi Lee Nelson, who took home Aus$972 000 a nice little earner for a player who destroyed the field in the PartyPoker.com World Open the year before.

Last year, many of the biggest stars in world poker were in attendance and 2007 promises to be no different. Fox Sports will be filming the entire event from the Crown's lavishly refurbished 50-table poker room.

A PartyPoker.com spokesman said: " The Aussie Millions was one of the most popular tournaments with our players last year and one where many of our regular players succeeded in showing up the pros. It really has all the ingredients for an amazing trip it's the middle of the Australian summer and in Melbourne there is plenty of top quality sport to see when not at the tables such as the Australian Open Tennis Championship."

Players can qualify for as little as US$3 and there are plenty of daily and weekly qualifiers available.
