The Bubble has Burst!

danielw • Nível 17: Blinds 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

On a board reading {k-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} the Tournament Director announced "All in and a call"

Arie Kliper was the player at risk, called by Atanas Pavlov.

Arie Kliper: {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}
Atanas Pavlov: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}

Kliper was in need of a diamond to keep his tournament alive but the board ran out {3-Spades}{4-Spades} and he exits in 77th place, meaning that Day 1a has finished and all remaining players will be back tomorrow, in the money.

This exit means that Espen Jorstad has squeaked into the money with a single 5,000 chip left and even more impressive is that Michael Schmitz has also made Day 2 with a stack of 1,000.

Rokita Survives Bubble

BrandonBloom • Nível 17: Blinds 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Roland Rokita had gotten his 85,000 chips in from the hijack and was at risk against Pedro Neves in the big blind.

Roland Rokita: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Pedro Neves: {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

The {q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{10-Hearts} flop left Rokita needing help, and the {a-Diamonds} turn instantly put him back in front with Broadway. Rokita needed to avoid the board pairing to survive, and the {3-Spades} river bricked out to secure his double.

With 77 players remaining, players are on the bubble and one elimination away from being in the money.

Broadway for Stausholm

BrandonBloom • Nível 17: Blinds 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

With roughly 80,000 in the pot on a {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{j-Spades}{9-Spades} board, Martin Stausholm checked the big blind, Parker Talbot checked the cutoff, and Thor Morstol bet 50,000 on the button. Talbot folded and Stausholm moved all in for 99,000. Morstol got a count and called.

Martin Stausholm: {k-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Thor Morstol: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

Stauholm had the nuts but still had to fade an ace or a queen, and the {8-Hearts} completed the board to confirm the result.

Tuan Le Flips Best

danielw • Nível 16: Blinds 2,000-5,000, 5,000 ante

Daniel Marques Aziz raised over an open and Tuan Le decided to make a stand, reraising all in for his final 161,000, from the big blind.
Aziz made the call and it was a classic race, close to the money bubble.

Tuan Le: {6-Hearts}{6-Spades}
Daniel Marques Aziz: {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

The window card was {a-Spades}, followed by {2-Hearts}{j-Clubs}, putting Aziz in the lead. Le sat motionless as the {3-Clubs} fell on the turn, leaving him two outs in the deck to save him from elimination.

The {6-Clubs} on the river was the miracle card and Le now has an above-average stack after being one card away from being eliminated.

Danchev Spikes to Survive

BrandonBloom • Nível 16: Blinds 2,000-5,000, 5,000 ante

Dimitar Danchev had gotten his 55,000 chips in from the big blind and was at risk against Philip Joyce in early position.

Dimitar Danchev: {a-Hearts}{9-Clubs}
Philip Joyce: {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}

The {9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} flop gave Danchev top pair but he still needed to improve. The {2-Hearts} turn gave Danchev additional outs with a flush draw, and the {4-Hearts} spiked the river to complete that draw and keep his tournament life alive near the bubble.
