Gerard Simpson
Gerard Simpson asked us to mention the word “Dragons” in this post, and since he ended a surprisingly long Money Bubble, we’re mentioning it here.

A player in middle position raised all in for 56,000, and Gerard Simpon thought for a bit in the cutoff before he called, covering his opponent by just 15,000.

Simpson showed 8c8h, leading his opponent’s 7s7d.

The board ran out AsQs8s3c6c, safe for Simpson after his opponent flopped a flush draw, ending the remaining 126 players onward to Day 2.
