For the second straight year, James Dempsey has bubbled this tournament.
He limped in under the gun and Viacheslav Zhukov raised from UTG+2. Maria Ho called from the small blind, Robert Mizrachi called from the big blind, and Dempsey called all in for his remaining 1,000 after his original call.
The flop was checked around and when the turn fell, Ho checked to Mizrachi who bet. Zhukov folded, Ho called, and the river completed the board. Ho check-folded to Mizrachi's bet this time and Mizrachi tabled for kings full.
Dempsey couldn't beat it and for the second straight year is the bubble boy of this event.
