Ulladulla Poker player does good in the Main Event Melbourne
Congratulations to Ulladulla Poker player Aaron Purdue, who is following in the footsteps of poker stars Jill Binns and Phil Faux.
Aaron came 6th in the APL Main Event final day played in Melbourne Sunday 9 September with a prize worth over $20,000 plus a ticket to the next Main Event poker tournament.
He started the day in sixth position, of 50 players. In the day’s play a flop of quad 4s which secured his standings for the tournament.
Fellow poker player Jill Binns only last month won the NPL NSW Quarter Finals, Aaron also cashed in at this tournament – more details
Phil Faux just two years ago won the NSW APL Pro-series and also cashed in at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas with APL Poker.
Poker players and friends from Ulladulla following the game on Facebook and Poker Media cheering on Aaron. Well done Aaron, a great poker game.
Aaron was the only APL Illawarra South representative at the Main Event, as no regional APL tournaments are held in this region where players can win tickets to the Main Event. Players from this region also don’t receive the APL nightly winner prize packs nor are informed about the weekly online poker game that is available to the nightly winners.
