Felson Saved on the Bubble at the Expense of Bubble Finisher "toddchipman"


In Level 19 with blinds of 3,000/6,000 and an ante of 750, Dan "AvaGray" Lupo opened to 12,000 in early position and "toddchipman" three-bet to 36,000 on his direct left. Action folded around to Benji "OtB_RedHeron" Felson in the small blind, who cold four-bet jammed for 161,822. Lupo folded and "toddchipman" called.

Benji "OtB_RedHeron" Felson: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
"toddchipman": {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}

Felson needed a king and one came immediately on the flop {4-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{k-Hearts}, giving him top set. He faded an ace coming on both the turn {3-Hearts} and river {j-Diamonds} to secure the double, leaving "toddchipman" with just a few blinds left in their stack.

A couple of hands later, Steven "FadeOrHoldz" finished the deed when his {j-Spades}{10-Spades} made the nuts against the {7-Spades}{7-Hearts} of "toddchipman" upon a completed board of {2-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} to eliminate them in 18th place and officially send the tournament into the money.
