Schock Bubbles National Championship

Mitch Schock
Mitch Schock

After two and a half hours of hand-for-hand play, the bubble has finally burst. It happened when Matt Keikoan raised to 18,000 from the hijack and Mitch Schock moved all in from the big blind for 34,000 total. Keikoan made the call and the cards were turned up:

Keikoan: {Q-Spades}{6-Spades}
Schock: {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}

"Queen's coming," Keikoan said with a smile as the table waited for the cameras to get into position. There was a lot on the line, which was reflected on Schock's face when he closed his eyes and awaited the flop . . . {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{5-Spades}.

A visible rush of disappoint came over Schock as Keikoan had paired his queen to take the lead. Schock would need the last six in the deck to stay alive, but it was not meant to be as the {2-Hearts} appeared on the turn followed by the {5-Clubs} river. With that, Schock finished as the 2012 WSOP National Championship bubble boy while the remaining 18 players are guaranteed $22,278.

Sorscher Comes From Behind

Jonathan Sorscher
Jonathan Sorscher

Action folded to Jonathan Sorscher on the button and he moved all in for 58,000. Allen Kessler made a quick called from the small blind, and after the big got out of the way, the cards were turned up.

Sorscher: {K-Spades}{Q-Spades}
Kessler: {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}

Sorscher was in about a bad a spot as he could be, but that changed on the {3-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{7-Spades} flop when he paired his king and picked up a flush draw to boot. Just like that Kessler was drawing to two outs, which would come as the {9-Hearts} appeared on the turn followed by the {K-Hearts} on the river.

With that, Sorscher doubles and the bubble continues.
