In the Money

• Tase 16: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

With the money bubble bursting, the level is now up and we are back to normal play. We missed the action on the bubble hand as several all ins occurred simultaneously around the room. With that, the 55 remaining players are guaranteed at least $5,557.


Wood Doubles & Makes It Through the Blinds

After getting quartered in the previous hand, Matt Wood found himself all in after Jesse Cohen raised from the small blind.

Wood: {9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Cohen: {A-Spades}{2-Spades}{8-Hearts}{5-Clubs}

Wood was at risk for the second consecutive hand, but he would receive another reprieve as the board ran out {9-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{5-Spades} to give him a full house.

Wood Quartered

Matt Wood moved all in from under the gun for 6,000 and cleared the field all the way around to Jesse Cohen, who made the call from the big blind.



The board ran out {6-Hearts}{J-Spades}{7-Spades}{10-Spades}{5-Hearts} and Cohen laid claim to 3/4 of the pot, knocking Wood, who will be in the big blind next, down to just 3,500.

Flopped Wheel Allows Cousineau to Double Big

We saw a crowd gathering over at Table 356, which is right next to the rail, and discovered Roch Cousineau had just doubled, and in big fashion. We're not sure of his opponent's hand, but Cousineau had {2-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{J-Spades} laid out in front of him with a board reading {A-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{9-Spades}.

Stay at These Blinds

• Tase 15: 1,500-3,000, 0 ante

It has been an hour since the last blind increase, but as we are still playing hand-for-hand, the blinds will stay at the same level until the bubble has burst.
