Tom McCormick going in to today had the toughest table seeding. Bagging the least amount of chips yesterday caused him to be playing the second biggest stack in the room today due to Warwick Mirzikinian's bye. Bagging 19,000 yesterday, he was drastically out chipped by his opponent, Fabrizio Baldassari, who brought 461,000 here on day two.
It only took about four hands for McCormick to get all in and called by Baldassari. With McCormick holding he moved all in for his remaining 15,000 and was called by Baldassari who was holding . A flop was spread out and it looked like McCormick could be on the road to being in contention. A turn furthered his hopes, but a river dashed those dreams as Baldassari paired his queen. Baldassari now awaits to play the winner of the Daniel Buzgon vs. Dimitar Danchev match.
