Event 3: Bubble Watch

$350 + $50 + $100 Black Chip Bounty NLH (Re-Entry)

Two Pairs Justin Time

The biggest hand of the tournament happens as we're six spots from the money and Justin Schwartz (Lake Grove, NY) is now the clear chip leader with 675k.

On a board of K♣ 5 4♣:

Player X bets 38k
Schwartz raises to 84k
Player X moves all in for 135k more
Schwartz tank calls

Player X: A 5 (ace high) 
Schwartz: J♣ 10♣ (flush draw)

Turn: J(Schwartz, pair of jacks)

River: 10(Schwartz, two pairs)

Player X shakes his head in disbelief as he's on the rail in 69th place and watches the half a million chip pot slide across the table.

The top 63 cash in this event as we'll soon be playing hand-for-hand.
