Marsha Wolak was working her short stack all, finding timely doubles/triples when needed to ladder up the payouts. She was down to 165,000 in the big blind when Ian O’Hara put her all-in.

Wolak called without looking and her 5s3s was live against O’Hara’s Ts8h until he popped the QcTd8s flop. Any miraculous comeback was cut short when O’Hara improve to a full boat on the 8d turn to send the 2011 WSOP Ladies Champ out in 4th place.

This $70,000 cash is her biggest after the WSOP win and her second recent big score. Wolak finished 3rd for nearly $53,000 in the huge $1,100 No Limit Hold’em event that was part of the 2016 SHRPO Big 4 in August.
