Event 20: Bubble Burst - Break Time

$3300 + $200 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship NLH    

Mark Bramley (utg) opened for 25k.  David Williams (button) raised to 60k and Mark flatted.

On the J J T rainbow flop, both players checked. Turn was the 9 of hearts, putting two hearts on the board.  Mark bet 45k, David Williams raised to 100k, and Mark called after giving it some thought.

River was an offsuit King.  Mark checked, David moved in, having Mark well covered, and Mark checked into the tank for an extended stay.

All the other tables had completed their hands, so a large crowd had formed around the table.

One table over, Stephen Ekin had already folded, leaving himself with only 5,000 chips.

Mark, who started the hand with about 450k, finally called all-in.  David showed pocket Kings for the rivered full house.  Mark mucked his hand, later claiming he held AQ of hearts (open-ender, nut-flush draw on the turn, rivered Broadway).

Mark busted out in 101st place, earning zip, zilch, nada.  (Mark finished 2nd in the $500 + $60 event earlier in this series for over $22,000).

David Williams extended his chip lead to almost 2 million.

Once the player count was verified, the final 100 took off for a break.  They are all in the money and guaranteed to earn at least $8,386.
