Tirth Patel

With 14 players remaining, Table 32 lost a player to put the field on the money bubble. But first Table 33 needed to finish their hand.

They had a flop out reading QsJd9s and Frank Weigel checked from the small blind. Tirth Patel bet 40,000 and Weigel checke-raised to 120,000. Patel thought for several minutes, a tough decision with only 180K total in his stack.

He called leaving 60,000 behind, the turn came Tc and Weigel dropped in a big stack. Patel would have to call at risk and he thought some more. After a few minutes, another player at the table called clock and Patel called before the count was done.

Patel: AsAh
Weigel: Ac8c

Weigel made a queen-high straight on the turn, Patel was left with only seven chop outs, none of which came on the 3d river to send him out on the bubble.
