Event 7 ($560 NLHE): Samuel Bernabeu Takes the Chip Lead as the Bubble Bursts

The money bubble lasted one hand and came in the form of a double elimination. One of the hands, though, resulted in a new chip leader emerging.

With the board reading As9c5s4c, a series of raises led to the player on the button all in for about 570,000 with 5d4d. Samuel Bernabeu, in the small blind, had him drawing dead with AcAd and secured the pot after the inconsequential 2c river completed the board.

The board reads 271 players remaining now and the blinds have increased to 6,000/12,000 with a 1,000 ante.

Samuel Bernabeu – 1,350,000 (112 bb)
