Adam Friedman pushed his last 135,000 into the middle and was called by Michael Chow.
Friedman was in very bad shape after his desperation shove and would need lady luck to smile on him if he was to survive this all-in confrontation. The flop fell [ and Mrs. Luck was nowhere to be found. Friedman stood up and packed his things, offering handshake to Chow in a show of class. Chow returned the gesture but it was apparent he wanted to see a brick on the turn to cement the win before he did any celebrating.
The turn card fell and Friedman was offered a glimmer of hope. He could now catch a six and a six only to make complete his gutshot straight draw and remain in contention. His supporters began hollering for a six as the dealer burned and turned.
With that, Friedman's run had come to an end and he was eliminated in third place, earning $121,437 for his efforts. Chow climbed to 835,000 with the win and is still vastly outchipped by Aaron Steury as we begin heads-up play.
