He took the wise decision and proved the worth to stay back in the game. After just six hours of play, Andrew Robl emerged successfully to capture the Aussie Millions $1,000,000 first-place prize and the title of “Champion”.

Andrew Robl – 129,000
Tobias Reinkemeier – 160,000
Reinkemeier made the rail by calling off his stack following a four-bet all in from Andrew Robl. Reinkemeier was in terrible shape with his K♠-Q♣ dominated by Robl’s A♠-Q♥. The board ran out to leave Reinkemeier in seventh place. Next to leave was Vanessa Selbst, when she opened the action with checked-raised all in for 79,000 after Kagawa had bet out 36,000 and so on.
On the last show Robl lead over Igor Kurganov when, It appeared on a board of 9♣-4♣-2♥-3♦whenRobl bet 60,000, Kurganov raised to 190,000, and Robl put him all-in. Kurganov made the call, trying to double-up with 4♦-3♠ good for two pair. Robl, though, had A♠-5♣ and a wheel. The Q♠ on the river did not give Kurganov the boat he needed and Andrew Robl was crowned the 2013 Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge Champion.
