(PRESS RELEASE) -- In a little more than 50 days, the attention of the poker-playing world will be fixed on one of the biggest events on the international circuit - the Aussie Millions. Leading online poker room Titan Poker is awarding seats at the 2009 Aussie Millions Main Event as part of the sensational $12,000 prize packages players can win at one of its ongoing Satellites.
TitanPoker.com is staging regular Satellites as well as weekly Super Satellites every Wednesday awarding the Aussie Millions entry packages. Spokesperson Robin Steele is confident that the response this year "will eclipse that of ANY previous tournament!" More than 2000 people are expected to descend upon the Crown Casino in Melbourne this January, and the presence of the TV cameras and the fact that first place is guaranteed at AUD$2,000,000 is certain to keep interest high.
The Main Event, AUD$10,500 No Limit Holdem tournament is scheduled to run from the 18th - 25th January and will be the culmination of sixteen tournaments, promising to be the most memorable to date. Over 400 foreigners are expected to make the long journey 'Down Under', which is quite a contrast from the inaugural event in 1998 where only ten non-Australians paid the $1,000 buy-in and competed for the $74,000 prize pool.
