Survivor legend and part-time poker aficionado Boston Rob Mariano almost won a World Series of Poker Circuit ring last night in Biloxi.
Coming into the final table seventh in chips Mariano grinded his way up to the chip lead three-handed before dropping back and eventually busting in third.
After making a questionable call with QT to lose his chip lead, Mariano told the WSOP updates team later:

With a $1,675 buy-in and a $453,000 prize pool, Mariano still earned $47,805. Part-time pro and New Orleans salesman Martin Zentner took home the ring and $106,455. Hank Sitton finished second.
