Just when the tournament floor person informed the dealers to stop the action after the hand in progress, a big hand played out on Table 439. Everything was ready to switch for the hand-for-hand mode on a stone bubble once the hand would be over, with the field down to 73 players.
It started with Randy Ohel limping under the gun. Chase Steely was in the hijack, making it 25,000 and Bogdan Capitan called in the cutoff and Ohel called as well.
The flop came and Ohel potted for 87,000. Chase Steely raised all in and Capitan got out of the way. Ohel threw in his last 20,000 or so.
Ohel had a wrap and a nine while Steely turned up two pair and a flush draw.
The turn was the and the river brought no help for Ohel either.
"Dammit," Ohel said, knowing he fell short of cashing.
