Phil Wasserman

On a flop of 7h5s2s, Phil Wasserman got his last 70,000 into the middle out of the small blind against Mehmet Akbas from under the gun.

Wasserman showed Js7s8c4d, giving him top pair and a combo draw, but needed to hit either a flush or a straight against Akbas’ Ts9h7c7d.

The turn is the 5d, giving Akbas a full house and leaving Wasserman drawing dead to the 3h river.

Wasserman earned  $1,702 for his fifth place finish and Akbas holds more than half of the chips in play with four players remaining.

Mehmet Akbas – 505,000
Phil Wasserman – Eliminated
