Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

This Time Last Year

• Tase 16: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

During last year's hand-for-hand play on the money bubble, Reza Kashani earned the unfortunate distinction of bubble boy. Here's a look at the hand that guaranteed 693 players at least $19,359 last year:

Joseph Cheong and Reza Kashani went to a flop of {K-Hearts} {Q-Clubs} {9-Clubs} with 25,000 already in the pot. Kashani moved all in and Cheong insta-called and tabled {Q-Spades} {Q-Diamonds} for flopped middle set.

Kashani was drawing live though holding {K-Spades} {J-Spades} and needed Broadway cards to straighten out. The turn fell {8-Hearts} which changed nothing.

The river fell {Q-Hearts} putting an exclamation point on Kahsani's elimination. Cheong's quad queens upped his stack to 315,000 and is at least $19,359 richer.
