Stoyan Obreshkov moved all in under the gun for 39,000, Carlos Guerrero called from the hijack, and Donaldson Brown called from the button. Any further betting would create a side pot between Guerrero and Brown.

The flop came QcJd2h, Guerrero checked, Brown moved all in for about 160,000, and Guerrero quickly called. All three players revealed their cards:

Carlos Guerrero:  AhAc  (pair of aces)
Donaldson Brown:  KdQs  (pair of queens)
Stoyan Obreshkov:  Jh9h  (pair of jacks)

The turn card was the 4h, the river card was the 7c, and the pocket aces held up for Guerrero to win the pot and eliminate both players. Since Brown started the hand with a larger chip stack, he received the higher finish.

Carlos Guerrero  –  508,000  (64 bb)
Donaldson Brown  –  Eliminated in 6th Place  ($4,765)
Stoyan Obreshkov  –  Eliminated in 7th Place  ($3,775)

In the second hand of hand-for-hand play on the Money Bubble, Xavier Sitruk was all in from the small blind for 94,000 with AdAc, and he needed his hand to hold to stay alive against the QhQd of the player in the cutoff.

The board came Jh9h7d6s5s, and the pocket aces held up for Sitruk to win the pot and double up in chips.

Xavier Sitruk – 200,000  (33 bb)

In the third hand of hand-for-hand play, the player who lost the previous hand moved all in from the hijack for 33,000, and Donaldson Brown moved all in over the top for about 120,000 from the cutoff with AhKh. The short stack turned over 7s7d, and he needed his pocket sevens to hold to stay alive.

The board came Jh2s2dQsKc, and Brown paired his king on the river to win the pot and knock out his opponent in 13th place on the Money Bubble.

Donaldson Brown  –  165,000  (28 bb)

The remaining 12 players are in the money, guaranteed at least $2,445 each, and they will redraw for the final table when there are nine players left.
