Eric Froehlich Eliminated in the Semifinals ($283,966)

Eric Froehlich

Eric Froehlich open-shoved the button for a little more than 800,000, and Yevgeniy Timoshenko asked for the count as he considered the decision. When he learned the number (815,000), he made the call, and he was in front as the cards were turned up. With no bullets left, Froehlich was at risk.

Timoshenko: {A-Clubs} {4-Spades}
Froehlich: {Q-Clubs} {5-Clubs}

Froehlich needed to catch a card, and the {J-Hearts} {K-Hearts} {6-Clubs} flop was a big swing and a miss. He'd pick up a bunch of outs on the {4-Clubs} turn, but he was still an underdog to keep this match alive. He needed to find a pair or a club...

River: {3-Diamonds}

That's all she wrote. Froehlich froze in his chair as he studied the final board of his day. Unable to catch up, he's out in fourth place, good for nearly $300,000. Timoshenko is through to the finals, and he'll await the winner of our next match.
