In Hand #2 of hand-for-hand play on the Money Bubble, with the final board showing Qs6s6cAd2h on the river and about 120,000 already in the pot, James Romero bet 40,000 from the big blind.

Ashton Griffin is in the hijack with just 62,000 left in his stack, and he tanked for a while before he called.

Romero turned over 6d4s for trip sixes, and Griffin slammed the table in frustration as he mucked his cards, but one card accidentally flipped over — the Ah.

James Romero  –  465,000  (58 bb)
Ashton Griffin  –  22,000  (3 bb)

With 135 players remaining from a field of 1,070, the average chip stack is around 317,000 (40 big blinds). The final 134 players will finish in the money, with a min-cash worth $7,530.

There will be a 90-minute dinner break after this level, around 6:30 pm. Action is scheduled to continue tonight until the end of Level 20, around 12:30 am.
