Michael Souza went all in from middle position and it was folded around to Mark Schmid in the big blind. Schmid asked for a count and it was 410,000 total so 380,000 more to him. After a little white, he made the call and the players turned over their holdings.
Souza was in a classic coinflip for his tournament life. The was clean and changed nothing but Schmid stormed into the lead when the hit the turn. Souza would need one of two remaining threes in the deck to survive but it was not meant to be when the hit. Souza, who entered the day as the chip leader, goes out in what is surely a disappointing but commendable 8th place while Schmid continued to build his chip lead.
