In Hand #2 of hand-for-hand play on the Money bubble, the player in the small blind moved all in for 114,000, and Karl Manouchakian tanked for a while before calling from the big blind with a slightly larger stack.

The small blind showed Kc7h, and Manouchakian turned over 9s9c. The small blind needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Jd8c5cAdAc, and the pocket nines held up for Manouchakian to win the pot, eliminate his opponent, and burst the Money Bubble.

Karl Manouchakian  –  275,000  (46 bb)
