Chip Leader Mark Erickson raised to 90,000 in the cutoff and was met with a pot-sized bet from Adam Friedman on the short stack.

Friedman was left with 25,000 after Erickson just called and on the {q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop, the rest of it went into the middle to put the five-time bracelet winner at risk.

Adam Friedman: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}
Mark Erickson: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}

Erickson's queen had out-flopped Friedman and a second {q-Spades} on the turn sunk Friedman further with only his flush draw or a jack for a straight to save him.

The river {2-Spades} was neither of those and a frustrating and disappointing day for Friedman unfortunately came to an end shy of the unofficial final table.
