After 5 days of play at the Aussie Millions, the first Gold Ring of 2013 was awarded to Ruper Elder. The British poker pro, who won the 2011 EPT San Remo Main Event, bested a field of 1,338 entries in the $1,100 Opening Event and had to overcame 1 former EPT champion and the defending champion in this event, Aussie Brendon Ruble, on the final table. It was a well-deserved win by Elder who now adds $250,000 to a resume that already features over $1.5 million in tournament winnings!

| Nice going for Rupert Elder, that final table should be very scary for him at the beginning, just for having the former champion of the event. He was also a champion and he already had the experience of winning a big event, and now summing another victory will turn him stronger. Advice for pros: beware Elder in future tourneys!|

| Good to see the Brits doing well! Never heard of him before I seen this post but looks like he's a petty decent player. As all us Brits are lol|

We don’t here that uch about Portuguese players around here, but there are some really good too! I still haven’t decided if I’m participating on the €1,000 BRM freeroll, because the date isn’t the best for me, but comments like this of you and knowing you’re going to that game is giving me the will to enter it. I’ve already played against you in several events on different rooms and it was always great fun, so there’s a lot in favor to make me enter this event, besides the prize in question!

| Michael Guttman won the Aussie Millions' third event.|
The $1,100 Shootout attracted 210 runners, which meant it took Guttman just three single table wins to bank $44,100.
By the conclusion of Day 1 a total of 21 players remained and amongst those vying for the title was British pro Richard "Chufty" Ashby.
However, as the tournament progressed, Ashby eventually fell away in 15th place, whilst a remaining nine players, led by Peter Evans, made the final table.
Evans lead was soon cut, though, allowing Guttman to grind his handful of chips into a tournament winning stack.
A dominating chip lead for Guttman meant the heads-up finale against Shane Foglietta took just a few hands before the former claimed his fourth Aussie Millions title.
