Poker is a world sport, and the southern hemisphere’s largest poker tournament series has begun in Melbourne, Australia.  The name of the tournament is the Aussie Millions, and it attracts players and enthusiasts from around the globe to congregate in the land down under for some high stakes that are just as thrilling as Australian Rules Football.

Not only is Aussie Millions famous for being the largest poker tournament below the equator, but it’s also got a special extra feature to it.  The show is entirely run by women.  Known as the“Midas Touch,”this female-run tournament is sexy, unique, and serious at the same time.

Of course, the action hasn’t kicked off in earnest for the 2011 version of the tournament given that the opening festivities just occurred, but it’s always worth looking back to 2010 to get our appetites ready for the thrill of the stakes this time around.

Last year’s tournament saw Dan Shak taking the title, but not after a hard fought battle across the table with Phil Ivey.  Ivey’s winnings at Aussie Millions actually placed him at the top of the all time money-winning list, despite not taking the tournament title.  He hopes to switch that around this year, though, by keeping his earnings high and bringing home the title to match.

Not only does this tournament get the attention of the poker players, but it also captures the hearts and minds of Australians everywhere, who get together to celebrate the game of poker in True Blue style!
