Event 6: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Mixed-Max

Against All Odds

Phil Collins

During our last walk around we saw that last year's November Niner Phil Collins was all in and called by his opponent. Collins who took home a cool $2,269,599 for his main event performance last year was looking to make a memorable WSOP run this year. After the cards were tabled it didn't look like this would be the event where Collins has another great finish though.

Collins: {8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}
Opponent: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}

A {10-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} flop allowed for Collins to hope for some kind of run run straight, but a {A-Hearts} on the turn diminished those dreams quickly. The miracle {8-Spades} on the river gave Collins a set of eights and the winning hand. Collins now sits around 27,000.
