Money money money money money

The bubble has burst and the remaining players are in the money!

Our bubble boy is Grant Illig, who moved in with pocket threes and was called by the ace-ten of Derrick Contreras. Contreras filled up with tens full of aces and Illig was eliminated on the bubble.

Big Slick holds, money bubble continues

Level 16 - 4,000 / 8,000 / 1,000

We arrive at the table to see a flop of K♥J♥4♦ and 70,000 chips in the middle. Rich Clark moves all in for 50,000 and Tim Sipe calls.

Clark - A♣K♠

Sipe - Q♥9♥

Clark has top pair against Sipe's flush draw and must hold or be eliminated on the bubble. The dealer completes the board with the 8♦ on the turn and the Q♠ on the river. Clark survives and hand-for-hand play continues.

Rich Clark - 130,000

Tim Sipe - 340,000
