Aussie Millions Tournament Details

The Aussie Millions follows a very similar format each year and although the 2009 schedule is still to be announced, we present a break down of the expected events and a guide to the anticipated buy-ins. The buy-ins have remained relatively static for the last couple of years, so we do not anticipate them to increase by very much, if at all.
