Ray Flora Avoids the Bubble... For Now

[user139916] • Level 10: 600-1,200, 200 ante

We caught the action with one card left and Ray Flora's tournament life at risk. Flora held {5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and well behind the {7-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} (seven high) of his opponent for just a 6,000 chip pot.

The board read {A-}{2-}{9-}{9-}. Flora, who works at The Orleans here in Vegas, had five outs to split but didn't need them. The {4-} was one of the seven outs he had to win the hand, completing the wheel and he was able to avoid the bubble.
