Amateur poker player wins $1.6mil after buying in for $160

An amateur poker player has just pulled off a massive win at the Aussie Millions Poker Championship after only paying $160 to enter.

Shurane Vijayaram is the lucky bastard who turned $160 into $1.6mil with a lousy pair of fives.

Vijayaram entered the amateur tournament the week earlier for $160 and won that which gave him entry to the main event, which he won too.

Sounds like an epic week of winning from the lad. Surely the beers are on him.
