Phil Collins Eliminated in 9th Place ($12,610)
Former November Nine member Phil Collins has busted in a cooler of a hand here at the final table of Event #12.
Kuza Oshima raised to 24,000 from late position and two players called. Gregory Kolo called on the button and Dan Goldman called from the small blind. This put the action onto Phil Collins in the big blind and he raised to 120,000. Oshima folded but Kolo repotted, Goldman folded and Collins put in the rest of his stack.
Collins looked disappointed and rightly so because his WSOP bracelet dreams look set to be dashed. His tournament life hung by the balance as the flop came into view, making Collins' position even more precarious. The turn left Collins drawing dead, rendering the river meaningless.
Game over for Collins but definitely game on for Kolo, the tournament's new chip leader.
