Dropping Like Flies

Level 18 : 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante

Since the money bubble burst the bustouts have come at a frantic pace. 15 players have already made their way to the payout desk.

Guilbert Bubbles in Brutal Fashion

Level 18 : 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante

The money bubble lasted just one hand. Bustout action replayed by players at the table.

After preflop action folded around to Johan Guilbert in the small blind he shoved all in and was immediately called by Brian Croak in the big blind. It was a bad time for a blind versus blind cooler. The board runout was of no help to Gilbert and he was eliminated on the money bubble.

Yohan Gilbert: {j-}{j-}
Brian Croak: {k-}{k-}

Mike Sexton

Action picked up on the river on a board reading {5-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{3-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}.

Poker Hall of Fame member Mike Sexton was part of a three-way all in and had just tripled up, thanks to a great runout and the other two players having pretty much the same hand.

Mike Sexton: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
First Opponent: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}
Second Opponent: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}

The two players chopped the small side pot, but the first opponent was left short because he barely had Sexton covered in chips.
