Melbourne, Australia. Monday 29 January 2018. Crown’s 2019 Aussie Millions Poker Championship will commence on Tuesday 15 January 2019 in the Crown Poker Room, Melbourne, Australia.

The action-packed schedule will include the official gold bracelet event, satellites and cash games, along with daily tournaments running for 21 consecutive days.

Nearly 100 poker tables will be set up across the award winning complex to accommodate the thousands of players from over 35 countries who visit Crown during January to compete for a share of a total estimated prize pool of over AUD$24 million.
