Aussie Millions - Concern Over Structure Grows

The organisers of the 2009 Aussie Millions - the prestigious poker tournament held in Australia - were keeping tight lipped about the tournament's structure yesterday, Melted Felt can exclusively report. We sent the Melted Felt Mole deep into their organisation to bring you another sensational exclusive!

Concerns started after last years structure diminished the skill-edge of top internet pros by using real chips and cards. With blinds of 100 / 200 and 500 chips to start, the room for post flop play was 'kind of cramped according' to one winner of a UB Freeroll.

Our mole infiltrated the organisation to the highest levels - getting the following exclusive information from the head of barbequeues... this year they will start with 10,000 chips and blinds of 25 / 50 - the same as they do in the World Series. However, in order to differentiate this tournament from the 100's of others around the world, the following changes are to be brought in to 'Keep It Ozzie'.

- Play will flow counter-clockwise to match the spiral of water going down plugholes.

- Cards will be dealt face-up, but the individual players will be seated underneath the tables.

- When anyone calls the clock on an opponent a 10 minute timer will be started and cans of Fosters lager distributed to all the players.

- The dealing of the first 3 community cards will not be known as 'the flop', in keeping with Australian culture we will now see the "Strewth!" instead, the turn the "Hooley-Dooley" and the river the "Fair-Dinkum".

- The tournament will break for 30 minutes at 15:25 hours each day for Home And Away.

Well, enjoy the tournament, Melted Felt are off to look at the under / over for how many idiots come home with a digeridoo...
