Benjamin Philipps bubbles EPT 13 Malta 2016 €5,300 Main Event

After his earlier double up, Benjamin Philipps was blinded down to just 5,500 in chips.

He then had to post the big blind and was left with only a single 500-chip behind. From first position, Tomas Macnamara, who doubled him in the previous hand, raised to 10,000. It was folded to Philipps and he started waiting for all the other tables to finish their hand.

There were no other all-in-situations, so Philipps was at risk of becoming the bubble boy when he threw in his final chip. The camera crews rushed to the table and he showed his {Q-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}.

Macnamara was ahead with the {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}.

The board ran out an uneventful {10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{J-Spades}.

In the end, it didn't really matter and Philipps was on his way out empty handed while all the others in the room secured a pay-day of at least €8,070.
