The bubble bursts!

Event 12: $300 + $50 No-Limit Hold'em

With 37 players remaining and on the bubble, John Chernosky from Brick, NJ had 18k when he had to post the big blind of 10k.  All folded to the button who minraised to 20k.  The small blind called, and Chernosky called all in, creating a side pot.  The two live players checked down every street on a Q844Q board, tabling AJ and AJ.  Chernosky tabled TT to claim the pot and survive the bubble.

On the very next hand, three players went out on three different tables.  The tournament staff determined who was the shortest stack, and that player will be the official "bubble boy."  Within a few minutes, three more had busted inside of the money, and there are now 31 players remaining.
