Returning as the third largest stack, this is the second time Jeff Rossiter has made the Aussie Millions Main Event final table. The first came back in 2011 when the Adelaide native finished in third for AUD$700,000 ($692,315 USD).
This marked the start of Rossiter’s entry into the big leagues with the young professional making close to $1 million for the year, final tabling the ANZPT Melbourne and winning the Joe Hachem Deep Stack before going on to finish 2011 with a third place finish in the APPT Macau Main Event.
Rossiter returned to Macau the following year where, in addition to cashing in the Macau Poker Cup Red Dragon Main Event in June, he took down the HKD$23,200 Asia Championship of Poker Warm-Up for HKD$1.7 million ($229,276 USD) and went on to crush the HKD$250,000 High Roller for HKD$2.2 million ($286,949 USD).
The Australian’s biggest career score also came in Macau at the 2013 HKD$1 million GuangDong Millions where he finished second for a cool HKD$24.5 million ($3.1 million USD).
Rossiter is Australia’s second highest earning tournament player with over $6.3 million in tournament winnings – only Joe Hachem has won more. Rossiter told Pokernews he’s now retired from professional poker so a win here where it all started six years ago would be a fitting end to a glittering career.
