A player moved all in under the gun for 35,500, but Ashraf Chehata didn’t notice it from the small blind, so he called, thinking he was just calling the 2K big blind. But it’s ruled a call of the all-in bet.

After action completed at the other six tables, the UTG player turned over 10h10c, and he needed it to hold to stay alive against Chehata’s Ah7c.

The board came Qs6d3cAs5h, and Chehata paired his ace on the turn to win the pot and eliminate his opponent on the Money Bubble.

Chehata apologized, though he had already made it clear that he would not have called if he knew the UTG player had moved all in. But the rest of the field was appreciative that the Money Bubble had been relatively quick, and they were now in the money.

With 37 players remaining, the average chip stack is about 88,000 (44 big blinds), and the remaining players are all guaranteed to earn at least $505 each.
