Event 20: Padmanaban Kulathur-Karvannan Out on the Money Bubble; His Amazing Comeback Falls Short

Level 18: 4,000/8,000 with a 8,000 ante
Players Remaining: 36 of 507

Padmanaban Kulathur-Karvannan bagged up a stack of 39,500 to reach Day 2, but he said he ran into traffic this afternoon which is why he arrived late — into the second level of the day.

When he got here about 45 minutes late, Kulathur-Karvannan was down to one big blind in his stack, but he was able to survive for more than an hour to make it to the Money Bubble and a shot at redemption with a min-cash.

In Hand #5 of hand-for-hand play on the Money Bubble, Kulathur-Karvannan moved all in UTG+1 for 32,000, and James Scott called from the big blind with Ac9c.

Kulathur-Karvannan turned over AhQh, and he was in a dominant position to double up here.

The board came KhKc6c9hQc — Scott paired his nine on the turn, but Kulathur-Karvannan celebrated when he saw the queen on the river to give him a higher pair.

But what Kulathur-Karvannan didn’t notice is that Scott had two clubs in his hand, and the same queen he celebrated gave Scott the victory with an ace-high club flush.

It was a painful reversal, and it ruined what would have been an amazing comeback for Kulathur-Karvannan. But he took the loss in good spirits as the remaining 36 players finished in the money, guaranteed at least $395 each.

James Scott  –  165,000  (21 bb)
Padmanaban Kulathur-Karvannan  –  Eliminated

Level 17 comes to an end with 38 players remaining, one elimination away from beginning hand-for-hand play on the Money Bubble.

A scan of the field during the break turned up six players with at least 300K in chips, creating an unofficial leaderboard:

At Table 5, the player on the button is all in for about 75,000 with KdKc, and needs his hand to hold to stay alive against the AsJs of Will Evans in the hijack.

The board came Qc10s8sAh7d — Evans flopped a spade flush draw and paired his ace on the turn to win the pot and eliminate his opponent from the tournament.

Will Evans  –  225,000  (38 bb)

At Table 6, a player raised under the gun to 11,000, the next player moved all in from UTG+1 for about 85,000, and Giovanni Massa moved all in over the top from late position. The original raiser folded.

The short stack turned over AsKd, and she needed to improve to stay alive against Massa’s QsQd.

The board came Js6h3h10d2h, and the pocket queens held up for Massa to win the pot and eliminate his opponent from the tournament.

Giovanni Massa  –  245,000  (41 bb)

With 42 players remaining, the average chip stack is about 181,000 (30 big blinds). The field is less than one table away from the money.

With the board showing Kd10d3s5h on the turn and more than 200K already in the pot, chipleader Nathan Grow has moved all in from the big blind against his opponent in late position.

Grow’s opponent has about 185K remaining in his stack, and he tanks for a long time before he folds.

Grow shows Ad4h for ace high with a gutshot straight draw as he takes the pot to increase his already massive chip lead.

Nathan Grow  –  700,000  (140 bb)

A few minutes later, Grow has knocked out a player to near the 900K mark.

Nathan Grow  –  890,000  (178 bb)

Grow already has about 11.7% of all the chips in play with 48 players remaining.
