Online qualifier wins Aussie Millions

1 Feb 2010

GIBRALTAR -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Party Poker has even more reasons to celebrate this week after two of their online qualifiers finished in first and second place in the 2010 Aussie Millions Main Event at the Crown Casino in Melbourne. 23-year-old Tyron Krost, from Bondi, Sydney scooped first place and a stunning AUD$2,000,000, while Frederik Jensen, a 27-year-old from Copenhagen finished runner-up for AUD$1,100,100. The two online qualifiers dominated a final table that included star names such as Annette Obrestad and Sorel Mizzi.

Krost currently works in his family owned office furniture business in Sydney but now looks to be part of the furniture of the world poker circuit after his amazing win. He recently graduated after studying psychology and finance, both excellent skills for poker.

Sipping champagne with his large supporting contingent Krost said: "This is totally unbelievable - it is beyond my wildest dreams. If it is a dream, I don't want to wake up! In total I spent $700 trying to qualify for a package and I have managed to turn that into AUD$2,000,000! I got some really good spots on the final table. When I needed a hand I seemed to get it."

"It just hasn't sunk in at all how much money I have just won. I have no idea what I am going to with it. I cashed at the World Series in 2008 but nothing like this." One person who was also ecstatic was his girlfriend Carly, who was cheering him on from the rail.

749 players, including 43 online qualifiers, took part in the southern hemisphere's premier poker event this week and one of those players, poker superstar Gus Hansen fell victim to Krost. "Gus knocked me out of the 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event and then I knocked him out in this tournament. Bit spooky that," added Krost.

Krost's win means that the Aussie Millions Main Event title stays in Australia and the camp for the second year running. Last year's champion and Team Party member Stewart Scott was amongst the first to pass on congratulations. "I'm delighted for Tyron and I can honestly say I know what he is feeling like right now – it takes your breath away."

Team Party's latest signing Tony G was also delighted: "PartyPoker are on a roll. Our players are starting to dominate – it is bike time for the rest!"

Krost had been taking counsel from Tony G before the final table but doesn't intend to adopt one of the Australian poker idols habits: "I will not be knocking people out and getting them to ride a bike. I will leave that to him!"

Tyron was full of praise for the runner-up and fellow online qualifier Frederik Jensen. "I have to say well played to Frederik. He is an excellent player. It is fantastic that when it came to heads-up there were just two PartyPoker qualifiers left."
