Toby Lewis is making Melbourne his residence once again, after winning the AUD 50,000 Challenge a few days shy of completing runner-up to Rainer Kempe in the AUD 25,000 Obstacle.
When four individuals turned up to contend in the 2018 Aussie Millions AUD 50,000, while the remainder of the people scurried around the rail like questionable looking shrews, I assumed the Aussie Many millions High-stakes gambler scene looked as delicious as an overdrawn checking account.
Oh, what a difference a year makes.
151-entrants drizzled down on the AUD 25,000 Challenge like confetti at a wedding event, as well as Rainer Kempe beat Toby Lewis to win the title after both cut a deal and also moved all-in blind.
Could the step up in class burn out a likewise sized candle?
The AUD 50,000 Obstacle signed in at 62-entrants, leading to an unplanned Day 3 keeping that male Lewis once again intimidating the sprinkler system of the casino site as a result of his heat.

- Seat 3: Dominik Nitsche– 464,000
- Seat 4: Manig Loeser– 605,000
- Seat 5: Thomas Muehloecker– 144,000
Thomas Muehloecker was the much-loved to exit in the 5th area yet did marvelously well to ladder up 2 more rungs before shedding his ground and also ended up with the dead fallen leaves
The Austrian used Bjorn Li’s back as a bunky up, doubling with the Australian two times, once when KQo beat pocket treys when all-in pre-flop, as well as a second time when the pair turned a flush with Muehloecker’s nuts looking smoother than the 2nd nuts of Li.
It had not been Li’s day.
The only Australian not only make Day 3, he or she also got it in good on the turn with two pair hand against the one pair hand of Toby Lewis only for the man from the UK to river a much better 2 pair hand to send him to the imprison fifth place.
Then our two German rivals encountered fatal repercussions when Manig Loeser’s pocket 10s defeat Dominik Nitsche’s A5o, and also Lewis would take a big lead into heads-up versus Loeser after getting rid of Muehloecker 66 > AK, transforming an established when all-in pre-flop.
The heads-up activity began with Lewis holding a 2.7 mv 362k chip benefit, yet Loeser confirmed a difficult male to put down. The German star increased JJ > QQ when he struck a four-flush on the river, as well as the pair were even when Loeser doubled for a second time after his pocket nines held against pocket 8s.
Now, the pair set an offer that saw Lewis safeguarding $588,999, as well as Loeser $556,017, as well as went all-in blind with Lewis’s J2 beating 93 leaving everyone questioning why Lewis doesn’t play more of these things.

After his latest journey, he has safeguarded an additional $1.1 m, after his two excellent performances in the Money players, as well as making the final table of Occasion # 3: AUD 1,200 No-Limit Hold ’em Shot-Clock Shootout, finishing 9th, with the AUD 100,000 Difficulty ahead.
