In a rapid fire lineup of bustouts to start the final day of play with many players coming back with less than 10 big blinds, the following has happened during the expected early chaos that has transpired in a matter of minutes.

Joel Deutsch doubled up extremely short with pocket sevens against the Qd10s of big stack Jonathan Jaffe on a runout of 9h6s2hAh2c.

Up next was Toby Joyce getting all in for 1.1 million with pocket nines, and Justin Datloff had him covered holding AdQc. Pocket pairs won the day again as Joyce survived.

After that, it was short stack Mitch Garshofsky who got all in with Ah7c, which held against the Jd10s of Dan Martin.

Garshofsky found another short double when the consistency of pocket pairs early today survived again. This time it was pocket sevens up against the Ah10c of Jaffe. The board bricked out to let the short stack survive, and here we still are with 16 players in the mix.

As a matter of record in this streamlined post about a multiverse of double ups … a repeating theme while all of this has been happening is the shove with almost nothing left behind from the player on a short stack followed by tanking on multiple time chips before finally getting all of the chips in the middle.
