It was a cooler deep in the Main Event, with Wan flopping a set and rivering a full house on a runout, to deny Del Vecchio an historic third consecutive final table here at the Aussie Millions.

"I chipped up in every single spot that I could and and then ran kings into aces," said Del Vecchio. "This really hurts. When you go deep in these tournaments there's so much emotion to it.

Del Vecchio explained that he had a flight booked for tomorrow, and that earlier he was looking forward to having to reschedule it. Now, however, his plans have changed.
