David Gorr Grabs Aussie Millions Main Event Title
January 31, 2022
Australia’s own David Gorr, was the last man sitting recently of 721 starting players at the Aussie Millions AUD$10,000 buy-in main event, earning him an astounding AUD$2,000,000 top prize.

Gorr, a regular player at the hosting Crown Casino, outlasted an impressive international field of top pros to earn the Aussie Millions main event title including a final table that held not only Chris “moorman1” Moorman but also Patrik Antonius, a well known and highly feared Full Tilt Poker pro with over $3.2 million in lifetime tournament earnings.

Apparently not intimidated by these recognizable pros, Gorr personally eliminated both of them, first flopping two pair against Patrik’s pocket Kings, and then flopping a set against Moorman’s flush and backdoor inside straight draw. 

These two eliminations put Gorr- who had already entered the final table with one of the largest stacks- in an even more dominating chip position, which he was able to hold all the way into heads-up play before losing the momentum to runner-up player James Keys- despite having more than four-times his stack when heads-up play began.  Handing over nearly 10 million in tournament chips to your opponent during heads-up play, could discourage even the most seasoned tournament veteran but Gorr was undeterred, and worked hard to not only regain his lead but to sideline Keys; a long arduous process that turned the heads-up portion of this event into a marathon with more than 200 hands being dealt.

For his impressive runner-up finish James Keys earned AUD$1,035,000, or about $1,032,000 US.

The final table finish positions for the 2011 Aussie Millions main event were as follows:

1st.  David Gorr- $2,000,000*

2nd.  James Keys- $1,035,000*
