Stephen Song

The money bubble burst at the beginning of level 16 and the top 67 spots all secured an in-the-money finish.

A few minutes after the money bubble burst, the player under the gun raised to 15,000 and Stephen Song moved all in for 74,000 from middle position. The player in the cutoff moved all in for about 110,000 and the original raiser folded.

“Show me ace-king,” said a hopeful Song, tabling 8c8d.

His opponent showed AsKs and Song got what he was hoping for – a race.

The Kd was the window card, but it was followed by the 8h and the 4s.

Song flopped middle set and was in great shape to double up and stay alive. The turn was the Kc, however, and the cutoff picked up outs to make a bigger full house.

The river was the Qh and Song doubled up.

Stephen Song – 181,000
