There were a lot of all-in-and-call situations during this extended Money Bubble, so we’ll only be reporting a few hands leading up to the one that burst the bubble.

In Hand #4 of hand-for-hand play on the Money Bubble, James Felder was all in preflop with JsJd, and needed it to hold to stay alive against the AcKh of Theo Lawson.

The board came 8c5h2d6c10s, and the pocket jacks held up for Felder to win the pot and double up in chips.

James Felder  –  85,000  (14 bb)
Theo Lawson  –  360,000  (60 bb)

With 127 players remaining, the average chip stack is around 198,000 (3 big blinds). This flight is playing down to the final 126 players, and everyone who bags chips for Day 2 will finish in the money.
