Even with the field three from the money, it only took five hands to get there. Two players were sent out on the first hand to put them on the stone cold bubble and three hands later we had four all-ins spread throughout the room.

Mark Katz doubled through Mark “Bud” Wiser with the board already reading JdTc4h6d7c. Katz was good with 9d8s for the straight versus second pair AhTh for Wiser.

The second hand was a straight up chop with AhKc splitting the AdKs.

Mario De La Puente was all in on table 17 and two other players came along trying to knock him out. The board ran out Js9c9d6c3d and the two live players checked it down. De La Puente tabled AhTh to beat one KcQc but the other side of the table saw his opponent flip over AsKs to out kick the aces up.

At the same time in the front of the room, Jaya Malapati also went out and the stacks were counted down. De La Puente’s all in stack was bigger and he was awarded 100th place money and Malapati was our bubble.
