    Dan Shak beat Barry Greenstein, Tony G, chip leader Jonathan Karamalikis, and the biggest obstacle Phil Ivey to take down the title and AUD 1.2 million at the $100,000 Challenge event at the Aussie Millions. Phil Ivey takes AUD 600,000 for second place which means he takes over from Daniel Negreanu at the top of the all time money list in tournament poker.

    At start Shak was with the smaller stack, but played more aggressively and soon took the lead. Shak avoided postflop play against a more skillful opponent but instead played very fast preflop when he believed he was ahead; however, in the decisive hand he got lucky to take the win: Ivey raised preflop, Shak went all-in with A7 and got called with AT.

    The flop came with a 7 and that was enough for the win.

    "I just got the better cards, he's the best player in the world hands down", Shak said after being handed the winner's cheque.

    Phil Ivey's total tournament cashes are now $12.8 million while Daniel Negreanu is next with $12.4 million.
