Bithell Handed a Cooler; Bubbles MSPT $1,600 Main Event

AnthonyThompson • Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante
Andres Gonzalez de Agustin

A series of preflop raises saw Andres Gonzalez four-bet jam from the cutoff sending Oliver Bithell deep into the tank from the big blind.

With Bithell already having committed half of his, he asked for a tournament director the rules on possibly chopping the 135th place prize if another player were to be eliminated in the same hand.

After getting the conformation he wanted to hear, he decided to risk his 261,000 stack, ending in what was said to be a 15-minute tank.

Oliver Bithell: {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Andres Gonzalez : {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}

Bithell was racing for his tournament life and pulled ahead after the {9-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{j-Spades} flop paired his ace.

However, the turn came the {q-Hearts} giving Gonzalez a gutshot straight draw and unfortunately for Bithell, the dealer dropped the {10-Spades} on the river to complete Gonzalez's straight, making Bithell the bubble boy.
