The 2015 Aussie Millions Main Event final table.
The 2015 Aussie Millions Main Event final table.

On the first hand of play, the short-stacked Alex Trevallion moved all in and took down the blinds and antes.

On the second hand, something quite peculiar happened. It began innocently enough when Scott Seiver raised to 45,000 from the cutoff seat, and Ole Schemion defended with a call from the big blind. While the action was playing out on the stage, it was also being broadcast on televisions throughout the room for the dozens of spectators to see. The problem in this hand was they got to see a little too much.

For whatever reason, when the dealer fanned the {k-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} flop, the graphics being broadcast on the screen included the players' hole cards. Given there is no delay on this feed, the hand was playing out with everyone in the room knowing the holdings of Seiver ({9-}{9-}) and Schemion (what looked to be {k-}{3-}). Obviously this was a glaring security concern.

It was unaware to the players that their cards were being shown, and neither Seiver nor Schemion saw their opponent's hand.

Schemion then check-raised to 110,000 and Seiver folded.

"Your hole cards were just broadcast on the screen," someone in the audience shouted.

"Are you serious?" Seiver asked. The players then asked if that was the case what did they hold. They received an accurate answer.

Schemion threw his arms up in disbelief while several other players were left shaking their head. By far the most perturbed was Seiver, who stated that he would no longer be showing his cards to the camera. The tournament clock was paused so the staff could correct the situation, and it since has been rectified.

The players were reassured that it was a one-hand mistake and corrected. Indeed, a minute later cards were back in the air without the cards being shown. Despite the quick fix, it was apparent several players, most notably Seiver and Justin Bonomo, were very unhappy with the situation.

You can certainly expect as many hands as possible to be covered though, so don't go anywhere!

Welcome back to PokerNews' coverage of the 2015 Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge. After a few days off to allow players to play the Main Event without risk of scheduling conflict, the final table will commence today at 2:15 p.m. local time. The location will be the Aussie Millions Exhibition Hall at Crown Melbourne, and the stage couldn’t be larger.

With eight players remaining from the starting field of 70 total entries, young German superstar Ole Schemion heads the charge towards the title. Schemion is no stranger to big buy-in tournament poker and he’s certainly had his fair share of success throughout his very young career. Knowing the skill and experience he brings to the table, and combining that with his large chip lead, Schemion is without a doubt the favorite to earn the AU$1.87 million top prize.

The closest player to Schemion on the leaderboard is Jason Mo, a two-time World Series of Poker runner-up and a highly-talented player in his own right. Behind him is Erik Seidel, the winningest player in this event’s rich history.

By reaching the money this year, Seidel has now cashed in the Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge four times. His previous results were a second-place finish in 2007 for AU$550,000, a third-place finish in 2011 for AU$625,000, and a third-place finish last year for AU$1.076 million.

Then you’ve got plenty of notables filling out the field with Justin Bonomo, Dani Stern, Richard Yong, Scott Seiver, and Alex Trevallion.

Trevallion is likely the most interesting character at the final table simply because he’s stormed onto the live tournament scene with some great performances at this year’s Aussie Millions. First, Trevallion conquered a tough field in the $25,000 Challenge to win AU$645,150. He followed that up with a 33rd-place finish out of 648 runners in the Main Event for AU$25,000. He’s already locked up another AU$310,000 here and, albeit with having to battle as the short stack, could run it up to even more. Many are very curious to see how he’ll do here and possibly in the $250,000 Challenge that will conclude the festival with a massive bang.

Below is a video with Trevallion where Sarah Herring caught up with him during his deep run in the Main Event just to find out a little more about the man who's in full breakout mode:

As we said, the cards will be in the air at 2:15 p.m local time. If you’re in the Melbourne area, come on down to the Aussie Millions Exhibition Hall at Crown Melbourne and sweat some amazing high-stakes poker action. If you’re not, you can get all the coverage right here on PokerNews.
