Kyle Carson (left) versus Ryan McKnight (right)

On the very first hand of hand-for-hand play, Kyle Carson opened from the hijack and Ryan McKnight shoved for 57,000 from the cutoff. It folded back around to Carson who put in the calling chips.

The other tables in the field completed, and the tournament staff came over to announce the action.

McKnight flipped over QhQs and appeared to be in great shape against Carson’s JdJh.

The board came clean 7c2d2h3s until the Jc spiked the river giving McKnight the unfortunate title of bubble boy.

Kyle Carson – 400,000 (80 bb)
Ryan McKnight – Eliminated
