Chad Lipton Knocks Out a Player on the Money Bubble
The unfortunate bubble finisher (left) receives a fist-bump of condolences from Flight E chipleader Chad Lipton (right).

Chad Lipton raised to 18,000 from under the gun and the player in the big blind called.

The flop was 8c7h3h and the big blind check-called 18,000 from Lipton.

The turn was the 8d, the big blind led for 43,000, and Lipton called.

The river was the 6s, the big blind shoved for 209,000, and Lipton called with 9h8h for trip eights, besting his opponent’s 6h4h to send the remaining 109 players into the money.

In addition, with that pot, Lipton became the Flight E chipleader.
