Nick Pupillo raised from middle position to 12,000, the player on the button called all in for 5,000, and Andy Edgington called 12,000 from the big blind. There was now 15,000 in the main pot, and another 14,000 in the side pot between Pupillo and Edgington.

The flop came Qh10s4c, Edgington checked, Pupillo bet 6,000, and Edgington called. The turn card was the Kd, and both players checked.

The river card was the 9c, and they checked again. With no possible lows, all three players revealed their cards:

Andy Edgington:  Qc7c4d3d  (two pair, queens and fours)
Nick Pupillo:  briefly showed, then mucked
Button:  Ah10d3c2c  (pair of tens)

Edgington won the entire pot with his two pair to eliminate the player on the button in 15th place.

Andy Edgington  –  106,000  (9 BB)
Nick Pupillo  –  145,000  (12 BB)

With 14 players remaining, and only 13 getting paid, the field begins hand-for-hand play on the Money Bubble. The average chip stack is about 83,000 (7 Big Bets).
