Event 9: Curtis and Larkin Bubble Battle

$250 Buy-In Seniors No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 16: 2000/4000/500 Ante

Tom Curtis and Mike Larkin get into the biggest pot of the tournament on the bubble as Larkin and Curtis end up all-in on the turn on a Jh8cAsTd board.  Larkin held AhAd and took a chance on slowplaying the set but the 10 gave allowed Curtis to hit a  straight with his KhQd to pick up a 230k chip pot crippling Larkin.

But Larkin very short stacked turned it around to stay alive against Curtis a little later.  Larkin was all-in on an 8dQcKsTs board holding AcKh but Curtis showed Jd9s for a made straight.  Despair to turned to joy for Larkin as he spiked the Jc to hit an ace-high straight on the river and stayed alive after a devastating hand.

We’re still on the bubble and keeping the excitement coming!
