ROUTE 66 POKER OPEN BY RUNGOOD EVENTS (DAY 2): Bubble Bursts Twice
Level 14 (3000/6000/6000)
Total Entries: 310
Players Remaining: 35
Average Stack: 177,142
Two players have been eliminated in hand-for-hand play at separate tables.
At table 12, eight-handed, the action folds to Kelly Walters (pictured, left) in middle position, who puts in a raise to 19,000. After some thought Bryan Lipscomb (pictured, right) moves all-in. Walters snap-calls.
Lipscomb - QxQ♠
Walters - A♣A♦
In disbelief, Lipscomb finds himself in a cooler situation.
The flop 10♠J♥4♠ brings no help. A turn of 8♦ and river of J♣ ends Lipscomb's tournament run.
Walters - 209,000
Lipscomb - Eliminated
At Table 14, Jeffrey Martin's day came to an end when he got all his chips in the middle with QxQx against the AxKx of Homer Tipton. Tipton came from behind to send Martin to the rail.
With the double elimination on the bubble, Lipscomb and Martin will split 36th-place to take home $372 each.
