Hand #52: Kazu Oshima opened to 45,000 and McCormick three-bet all-in. Oshima called and McCormick was at risk at elimination.

Oshima: {J-Spades}{9-Spades}
McCormick: {3-Spades}{3-Hearts}

The {J-Hearts}{10-Spades}{6-Spades} flop was rather final as it left McCormick needing to hit a three and avoid a spade. The {Q-Diamonds} turn was followed onto the felt by the {Q-Spades} river, sending McCormick home in fifth place.

McCormick quipped earlier that he had managed to fold his way to a near $40,000 score and seems happy to have done so.
