Event 5: 4th Place - Fiederlein

$400 + $50 Pot Limit Omaha 8B

Andrew Fiederlein (Hoboken, NJ)

After not seeing an elimination for three hours, Fiderlein follows Greg Law out the door on back-to-back hands. And once again chip leader George Fotiadis does the damage.

Fiederlein is down to 120k and moves all in from the small blind with a suited ace (A-3-Q-9). Fotiadis slams the flop by hitting a full house with a pair of jacks and ends Fiederlein's day.

Earlier in five-handed play Fiederlein was the chip leader with 800k and had Fotiadis on the ropes, but Fotiadis hit running 3s to flip the tables.  The hand evened all five players and was the beginning of the end for Fiederlein.

The human resources manager was determined to play in this tournament and didn't let a car break down stop him.  After getting a tow from the Garden State Parkway back to Hoboken, he hopped a bus to Borgata and arrived at 1 am Friday morning, much later than he originally expected.

Andrew Fiederlein takes home $4,221 for his fourth place finish.
