During the second hand of hand-for-hand play on the Money Bubble, a player in middle position got it all in preflop for 76,000 with AcKs, and needed it to hold to stay alive against Adam Johnson’s AhQd on the button.

The board came Jh6h6s10sKd — the short stack paired his king on the river, but that same card completed Johnson’s ace-high straight. Johnson won the pot to eliminate his opponent and burst the Money Bubble.
