Australians to look out for at the WSOP-APAC: Jeffrey Rossiter

Posted at 09:10 2013-03-29 by Matthew Pitt

The inaugural World Series of Poker Asia Pacific is just around the corner and PokerNetwork believes that Australian poker players will shine on home soil. In the run up to WSOP-APAC we will be showcasing a number of players who we think will be shining jewels at the Crown poker Room.

Earlier in the week we had Tom “tollgate” Grigg and today we have to mention Jeffrey Rossiter.

Unlike many of his peers, Rossiter does not have millions in online poker tournament cashes on his PocketFives page but that does not mean he isn’t a formidable opponent when he enters a multitable tournament. Ask anyone who has had to take on Rossiter in the live poker arena and there will not be a single soul who enjoyed tangling with him in pots –well there may be a sadomasochistic person who did!

In 2011, Rossiter was part of a star-studded final table in the Aussie Millions Main Event, one that was the home to Sorel Mizzi, Patrik Antonius, Chris Moorman, Sam Razavi, Randy Dorfman and James Keys among others. Rossiter managed to navigate his way to third place, a result that bagged him A$700,000 according to the Hendon Mob database.

That impressive score is still the largest of Rossiter’s career, but he also has some other very impressive results on his poker résumé. In November 2011, Rossiter won the Joe Hachem Deep Stack Series 8 for a cool A$52,000 and just days later went on to finish third in the APPT Macau Main Event for a further $167,791. In fact Macau has been kind to Rossiter of late.

In November 2012, Rossiter bested a 358-strong field in the Asia Championship of Poker Warm-Up for a $229,276 score and he followed that up by finishing as runner-up to Jonathan Karamalikis in the High Roller event a few days later, adding $286,949 to his bankroll.

To date Rossiter has just over $1,600,000 in live tournament winnings and we would not be the slightest bit surprised if that figure passes the magical $2,000,000 mark by the time WSOP-APAC is done and dusted.
