Did that stop him from winning the 2013 Aussie Millions Main Event? Of course not. This is Mervin Fucking Chan we’re talking about.
Chan outlasted a final table that included one of the top high roller players in the world (Dan Shak) and recognized top 5 all-around player in the world (Patrik Antonius) to claim the 2013 Aussie Millions Main Event title and bank $1.6M AUD (or roughly $1.66 USD).
Chan joins a legendary “who’s who” of past Aussie Millions champs like David Gorr, Tyron Krost, Stewart Scott, and Jamil Dia.
The aforementioned Shak had the chip lead entering final table play, but finished fourth for $400,000 AUD. The also aforementioned Antonius came in third for $600,000 AUD.
