Alex Wheeler Eliminated on the Bubble

HillKerby • Level 17: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante
Alex Wheeler

Alex Wheeler was down to his last 8,000 and committed it in the hijack. Four other players 18,000 each, giving him a chance at more than quintupling his stack with a side pot already in the makings for the four remaining players.

Tyler Potts bet 35,000 on the flop {2-Clubs}{7-Spades}{6-Clubs} under the gun, with Jay Teel calling in cutoff. David Blankenship also announced a call on the button and all three players checked the turn {5-Diamonds}, bringing the river {4-Diamonds} where Potts bet another 35,000 and received a fold from Teel and a call from Blankenship.

Alex Wheeler: {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds}
David Blankenship: {5-Hearts}{3-Spades}
Tyler Potts: {3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}

Both Blankenship and Potts hit a straight on the river to chop up both pots, eliminating Wheeler in 73rd place as the official Bubble Boy of the tournament.
