Total Entrants: 195

Michael Tocci

When there are under 100 big blinds in play every hand will swing the momentum and dynamics of a Final Table and Sharman Olshan is now on a serious upswing after doubling through Gregory Spirito and then eliminating Michael Tocci after both players flopped "it" but Tocci's "it" just wasn't good enough.

The action was picked up with Olshan opening the action and Tocci moving all-in with Olshan making the call with Tocci well covered.

Sharman held [Ac][10c] and Tocci held [Qh][Qs].

When the [Qc] was placed down in the window, nearly everyone at the Final Table thought another short stack would survive, something Tocci's done a few times tonight, but then the [4c] and [8c] would follow and Tocci went from being a massive favorite to double up to needing to hit on the turn and river to save his tournament life.

Sharman's flopped flush would hold and Tocci would be getting sent to the rail in 6th place making just under $2,500 for his Final Table run.

Just like that, in a span of a few hands Sharman Olshan went from being one of the shorter stacks to one of the chip leaders five handed at the Event 9 Final Table.
