We're In the Money!

When the money bubble approached, the poker room became a zoo. Although the tournament area was roped off, railbirds stood five and six people deep to catch a glimpse of the most exciting part of a poker tournament. Several media reps and spectators stood up on chairs to catch a better glimpse of the action. When there was any action, the players at other tables who were not in the hand would rush over to the table to sweat the action. Aggressive players with big stacks took advantage of the tentative play of medium and smaller stacks, thereby adding more chips to their already monster stacks.

With Martin Wendt busting the bubble boy, the remaining 56 players have made the money. Each player is guaranteed to win at least €10,500.

57 Players Remaining

We are officially on the money bubble. The tournament clock has been paused and hand for hand play will commence shortly.

Paul Wasicka Eliminated

The player to Wasicka's right moved all-in blind and Paul Wasicka called. Wasicka turned over 7-7 and found himself in a race situation with his opponent's K-Q. Unfortunately for Wasicka, his opponent flopped a straight and he was eliminated just before the money.
