Phillip Wasserman (Sarasota, FL) began the day with 234k (6th overall), but is on the rail.

Tony March (Tampa, FL) is the benefactor in a huge hand and is now among the chip leaders.

March and & Wasserman are all in on a flop of 8s6s6x with Wasserman drawing thin against March’s flopped full house

March: 8x8x (full house)
Wasserman: 9s7s (OE straight flush)

The Tc hits the turn, but it’s the wrong black ten and the river 7x is no help sending Wasserman home.

John Holley (Niceville, FL) & Rob Manjura (Heathrow, FL) witnessed the carnage and help fill in the blanks. They say Wasserman lost a chunk of his stack on a missed flush draw earlier in the level, which put him just below March’s count.

March is up to 345k after starting the day with 104k.
