David Coleman earlier on Day 3

Asher Conniff raised from early position, James Mendoza called in the small blind, and David Coleman called in the big blind.

The flop was 8s5s4c, and action checked to Conniff who continued for 90,000. Only Coleman called.

The turn was the 2s, Coleman checked, Conniff went all in with a covering stack, and Coleman called all in for roughly 300,000 with 7h6h for an eight-high straight, leading Conniff’s KsQd for a flush draw.

The river was the Qs, giving Conniff a king-high flush to eliminate Coleman in 27th place.
