Down to fewer than ten big blinds, Intertops Poker qualifier Phillip Cardella moved all in and Michael Lech in the small blind reshoved.
Cardella had a flip with ace-queen suited against pocket jacks, but Lech immediately flopped a set and left his opponent drawing dead on the turn.
Nevertheless, our man Phil came in 17th, cashing in $3,500.

Intertops Poker qualifier Phillip Cardella was one of the players that doubled on the stone-cold money bubble and bagged up 107,000. He's looking to get back into the action today at 3:30pm local time to fight for the prize money and the WSOPC ring.
