Aussie Millions Main Event Day1 A chip counts

Young PokerStars player Jimmy Fricke was a revelation, during Day 1A. He carved up his table during only his third major poker tournament and, according to one of his tablemates, even put the railbirds on tilt. Jimmy was exhausted by the end of the day, having amassed a huge stack of 139k, and feels like he's coming down with a cold.

He wanted to send a message to his mother, Peggy Klausner, an avid fan of the PokerStars blog, who is back home in Mahomet, Illinois.

"Hi Mom, I feel a little bit sick, but I am going to win this one!"

Defending Aussie Millions Champion Lee Nelson finished the day on a healthy 75k.

Other notable PokerStars chipcounts from day 1A:

David Pham 53k
Min Quach 50k
Giuseppe Famulari 47k
Jody Thompson 34.2k
