Tach Bubbles Day 1c in Dramatic Fashion

Nível 19 : 10,000/20,000, 20,000 ante
Farukh Tach
Farukh Tach

Approaching the bubble, Farukh Tach opened to 240,000 in early position, leaving just 25,000 behind. Action folded to chip leader Amit Yacov. He raised to 500,000 on the button which folded out the blinds, one of which was Ori Elul.

Tach then went deep into the tank, waiting to see if the there were any more bust outs before committing his stack.

Dario Rodrigues was eliminated and Tach thought that was the bubble burst. He put in the rest of chips thinking he had secured a min-cash.

Farukh Tach: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}
Amit Yacov: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}

Yacov scooped the pot on the {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{10-Clubs} runout. It was then relayed to Tach that Rodrigues was the 104th bust out, much to his annoyance, and that he was the 103rd meaning he was the unfortunate bubble boy.
