UltimateBet's Michael Binger Collects $123,840 at Aussie Millions

UltimateBet’s Michael Binger, a member of the online poker site’s Star Players Team, today took first place in Event #12 of the 2009 Aussie Millions, securing $123,840 and a gold ring for his victory.

The 32-year-old online poker player, who has a PhD in physics, bested a field of 42 high-profile players to claim the top prize in the $3,250 Pot Limit Omaha Rebuy tournament.

“We couldn’t be more excited for Michael Binger on his impressive win,” stated Annie Duke, UltimateBet’s Cardroom Consultant. “When we created the Star Players Team, we chose players who were not only incredible at online poker, but also amazing on the world poker stage. Michael Binger’s win at the Aussie Millions clearly demonstrates that he is the ultimate Star Player.”

In May 2008, UltimateBet established its Star Players Team, reserved for online poker’s most revered players who possess an undisputed high level of skill and lots of integrity in the online poker world as well as in live poker tournaments.

In addition to his online accomplishments, Binger has accumulated a number of impressive wins on the world stage. The physicist-turned-poker-pro’s largest tournament win of $4 million came in 2006 with a 3rd place finish in the Main Event of the World Series of Poker. In April 2008, Binger finished first in the 2008 Five-Star World Classic at Bellagio Hotel Casino to claim $317,280 in cash. Other notable land-based wins include a first place finish in the 2008 LA Poker Classic for a $125,730 payday, a second place finish at last year’s Aussie Millions for $77,493, and a third place finish in the 2007 World Series of Poker which netted him close to $300,000.
