Last year Julien Sitbon travelled all over the world to play poker on his way to eclipsing the USD$1,000,000 mark in lifetime cashes. One destination he has never visited is Australia and he’s here in Melbourne playing at the Aussie Millions for the first time. 99ceme
“It’s really my first time,” said Sitbon. “Last year I played a lot and I decided to have a little break. Just come here and visit and travel. I want to enjoy the country and travel with my girlfriend. I’ll play the Aussie Millions AM and then travel all around here.”
Sitbon flew into Australia ten days ago and spent time at the beach in Perth, before flying to Melbourne where he arrived four days ago.
“I played the H.O.R.S.E. and the Opening Event twice, and I’ve made Day 2. I’m feeling quite good, being here, of course, I hope I can make Day 3.
“The style of poker here is completely different. It’s a lot more like in the U.S. than in Europe. It’s not the same poker. It’s nice because it’s much more about exploitation than GTO. I really like that a lot.”
He told PokerNews that after the tournament he is hoping to see the sharks around Australia. Let’s hope that sharks are in the water and not in the poker tournaments.
“I’m ok with that,” Sitbon smiled. “I will fight with them at the poker tables – but not in the water!”
