Pan Bubbles Event #5: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

It didn't take long for the bubble to burst here in Event #5 $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha, and it happened over the course of back-to-back hands.

In the first, four players limped to see a flop of {6-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{k-Clubs}, and then three checks saw Sam Higgs bet 10,000. Only Nathan Pan called and then he check-called a bet of 17,000 on the {10-Clubs} turn. Both players proceeded to check the {J-Diamonds} river, and Higgs tabled the {q-Clubs}{9-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} for a straight. Pan mucked.

In the next hand, Pan limped from the hijack and then called when Higgs raised to 10,000 from the cutoff. Both players checked the {a-Spades}{5-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} flop, and then Pan bet 24,500 on the {7-Hearts} turn. Higgs raised it and Pan called off what little he had left.

Pan: {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{8-Spades}{6-Clubs}
Higgs: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}{10-Spades}{9-Clubs}

Both players had flopped trips, but Pan had kicker issues. They didn't get resolved either as the {2-Diamonds} blanked on the river. With that, Pan finished as the bubble boy in ninth place while the remaining eight players are guaranteed a minimum AU$15,021 payday.
