Event 15: The Bubble Finally Bursts

$1,650 Eight-Handed No Limit Hold ‘Em (Single Re-Entry)
Level 16: 1500/3000/500 Ante

It turned out not to be Justin Zaki’s night.

After nearly 6 hours of play, Zaki is victimized on the bubble.

Zaki’s lost a critical hand to fellow short-stack Roman Valerstein as his tens fell to queens leaving him with only 14,000 chips.

A few hands later, Zaki made his last stand with Qc9c but ran into aces to finish it and sending him home empty-handed.

The rest of the players let out a collective sigh of relief as this bubble finally cracked and we’re in the money on Event 15 plus have our official eight-handed final table.
