With 15 players remaining and only 14 getting paid, the final two tables began hand-for-hand play on the Money Bubble.

In the first hand, a player moved all in under the gun for 15,000. A player called from middle position, and Donny Rubinstein called from the big blind. Any further betting would create a side pot.

The flop came Jh10c3h, Rubinstein bet 8,000, and his opponent called.

The turn card paired the board with the Jc, and both players checked.

The river card was the Qc, Rubinstein bet 16,000, and his opponent folded. Rubinstein took the side pot.

The two players who reached showdown flipped over their cards for the main pot of 49,000:

Donny Rubinstein:  AhAc9s6c  (ace-high club flush)
UTG Player:  AdKs10h8s  (ace-high straight)

Rubinstein won the pot with his flush to eliminate his opponent and burst the Money Bubble.

Donny Rubinstein  –  240,000  (15 BB)

With 14 players remaining from a field of 109, the average chip stack is around 117,000 (7 Big Bets). The remaining players are in the money, guaranteed at least $1,345 each.
