Runner-runner for the win

Event 9 hit the money bubble portion of the tournament shortly before the first break and they played one round of hand-for-hand action before leaving for 15-minute one from the money

Shortly before the bubble, former SHRP champ Nicholas Mahabee was on the wrong end of a 3% runner-runner bad beat. He was in the big blind against Paul Balzano and Alicia Goldstein to the Tc7c3c flop.

Goldstein and Mahabee got their chips in the middle with Goldstein at risk and a huge underdog.

Goldstein: KcKs
Mahabee: Ac8c

Mahabee’s flopped flush was a 97% favorite to knock out Goldstein but that wouldn’t make for an interesting hand. The Kd turn gave Goldstein a set of kings and the board paired the Th river for the runner-runner full house win.
