In Hand #3 of hand-for-hand play on the Money Bubble, with the board showing AdJd6h9c on the turn, Andrew Esposito bet 18,000 from the big blind, Selahaddin Bedir raised from middle position to 45,000, and Esposito moved all in for about 95,000.

Bedir called with AhQh for a pair of aces, and Esposito turned over Ac2c for a pair of aces with a lower kicker. Esposito needed to improve to stay alive.

The river card was the 8d, and Bedir won the pot with a pair of aces and a queen kicker to eliminate Esposito in 197th place on the Money Bubble.
