Short stack Evan Dollinger is all in for 600k and is up against chip leader Dimas Martinez.

Martinez: 7h7s
Dollinger: TcTh

Flop: Js7d5s (Martinez set)

Turn: Qh (Dollinger, two outs)

River: 4s

Martinez wins the hand with a set of 7s to extend his chip lead to 4.3 million.

“I feel fine,” says Dollinger who finishes in 6th place for $54,355. “I had a couple of suck outs along the way to stay alive.”

His wife Rebecca is quick to point out that Dollinger was down to 18k (4 bb) on Day 2, but rallied for his third highest career cash.

“Probably going to get him to take a few days off,” says Rebecca as today is the couple’s second wedding anniversary. “A stay-cation at home.”

“It’s going to be a good anniversary,” smiles Dollinger, who is a full time professional player. Dollinger plays in a lot of cash games, along with tournaments here at Coconut Creek and at Hard Rock Hollywood.

Dollinger, who is 28-years-old, now has more than $300,000 in career tournament earnings.
