On the third hand of the bubble, Arkadiy opened to 15,000 from under the gun and Jake Dollinger called on the button. Corey Thompson moved all in from small blind for 30,000, Tsinis reshipped for 91,000 and Dollinger folded.
Thompson was in great shape for a bubble double but Tsinis paired his ace on the flop. The turn and river finished the board and Thompson was eliminated on the bubble.
