Bubble Burst -- In The Money!

Event 6: $250 + $30 No Limit Hold'em

Play resumed after dinner and players were busting out at a steady clip. Of the 64 players who left for dinner, only 63 returned. One player never came back and his stack was being blinded off.

With 60 players remaining, the blinds increased to 2k/4k with 400 antes.

Mike Ferrugiari's pocket Kings held up against pocket Jacks and another player was sent packing.

Pocket Aces held up against AK and another player reported to the rail.

Blinds went up to 3k/6k with 500 antes.

51 players were still in the hunt, along with an empty seat being blinded off.

Jonathan Tsang

Jonathan Tsang (New York, NY) opened for 35k and got raised another 45k on top. He called the raise to see a flop of J J 2. Jonathan announced he was all-in and his opponent folded. With that pot, Jonathan chipped up to ~240k.

Blinds went up to 4k/8k with 500 antes with 50 players remaining.

47th place

The empty chair was all-in for 7,800 in the big blind and finished in 47th place, two off the money.

A player's pocket Queens were cracked by AK - 46 players remained.

The call was made to halt to begin hand-for-hand play on the bubble, but the final hand in progress on table 1 saw a short-stack all-in and called by two players. On the flop of A J 2, one player moved in and the other folded. The all-in player held AT and was dominated by AK. No help as the last two came J 2 and one more hit the rail.

With 45 players remaining, the bubble had burst and they were in the money!
