Bubble Blown

$200 + $30 Deep Stack Turbo No Limit Hold'em

Players were busting out so fast they called for all tables to halt so they could get an accurate player count. When they did, they found exactly 54 players, which meant the bubble had already burst and all remaining players were in the money! (If they re-entered, they're only making $1. If they re-entered twice, they're still behind.)

Matt Stout got his last chips in and lost, finishing in 53rd place, earning $461. He re-entered, so that's a net profit of $1 for the day's work.

Matt 'Allinat420' Stout

Tony Hornback was the chip leader, briefly, with ~800k. As I watched, that all changed. After a player opened for 45km, Tony shoved from the small blind. Brian Ali (Brooklyn, NY) was in the big blind and called all-in. The opened folded and Tony showed pocket Jacks. Brian held pocket Kings and a huge lead. The board came 5 4 2 9 9 and Brian doubled up to ~560k while Tony was left with ~550k.

Greg Merritt

That made Greg Merritt (French Town, NJ) the leader with 675k. Jerry Callahan (Oyster Bay, NY) is second with 610k and Eric Ferrell (Brooklyn, NY) is third with 599k.

45 players remain and they're guaranteed to cash for at least $519.
