The Championship field was down to 100 players with 98 getting paid and tournament staff were on the lookout for one more elimination to begin money bubble play.
Alcides Gomez was eliminated in 100th place and they asked dealers to hold the action after their current hand.
That last hand on Table 62 would settle the matter. One player moved all in for about 75,000 and Carlos Marquez called in the big blind.
Marquez was ahead to burst the bubble and his big slick held on the board. His opponent was eliminated and the Championship was in the money without hand-for-hand play.
