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 flop.
Goldstein and Mahabee got their chips in the middle with Goldstein at risk and a huge underdog.
Mahabee’s flopped flush was a 97% favorite to knock out Goldstein but that wouldn’t make for an interesting hand. The turn gave Goldstein a set of kings and the board paired the river for the runner-runner full house win.
