$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Opening Event

Goodbye, Rossiter & How Do You Do, Aristidou?

With about 1,500 in the pot, an unknown player and Peter Aristidou checked a flop of {10-Hearts}{J-Spades}{7-Spades}, leading to the {7-Diamonds} turn, which both players also checked. When the {K-Hearts} appeared on the river, the unknown player checked, Aristidou bet 1,600, and his opponent quickly folded. It wasn't much of a hand, but a good excuse for us to mention that Aristidou is up to 17,500.

On the other hand, Jeff Rossiter has been eliminated from the tournament. For those who may recall, Rossiter came in third last year in the Main Event for AUD$700,000.
