Jeff Rossiter Eliminated in 5th Place (AU$27,011)

Chad_Holloway • Level 17: 2,500-5,000, 0 ante
Jeff Rossiter - 5th Place

Hand #36: Mike Watson raised to 12,500 from the cutoff and Jonathan Duhamel defended from the big blind, which brought about a flop of {q-Spades}{a-Spades}{2-Hearts}. Watson then called a bet of 20,000 from Duhamel on the {Q-Hearts} turn before both players returned to checking on the {3-Clubs} river. Duhamel showed the {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{8-Hearts}, but it was no good as Watson held the {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{4-Hearts}.

Hand #37: Watson opened for 12,500 under the gun and took down the blinds.

Hand #38: Duhamel raised to 17,500 from the button, Watson called from the big blind, and the flop fell {j-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}. Watson led out for 40,000 and then called when Duhamel moved all in for just 3,500 more.

Watson: {7-Clubs}{9-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Duhamel: {q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}

Both players had flopped a straight, but Duhamel's was best. Neither the {A-Clubs} turn nor {5-Clubs} river changed a thing and Duhamel scored the double.

Hand #39: Jeff Rossiter got his last 45,000 all in preflop and found himself trailing behind Watson.

Rossiter: {j-Hearts}{j-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{4-Spades}
Watson: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{9-Spades}

The {a-Hearts}{7-Spades}{9-Clubs} flop did little for Rossiter, and the {K-Diamonds} turn actually left him drawing dead as Watson spiked a set. The meaningless {4-Diamonds} was run out on the river for good measure, and then Rossiter took his leave in fifth place for AU$27,011.
