Vega Bubbles Day 1b of €1,100 Main Event

Calum_Grant • Nível 17: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

With 70,000 in the middle on a board reading {8-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}, Elena Vega checked in the big blind before Hai Hoang moved all-in as the covering stack.

Vega agonised over her decision and a crowd formed around their table. After some wrtithing, Vega found the call and was at risk of being the bubble.

Elena Vega: {5-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}
Hai Hoang: {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}

Although Vega was behind, she wasn't drawing dead. Howver the {j-Hearts} confirmed her status as the bubble and the remaining 56 players have begun to bag and tag their stacks for Day 2.

Full chip counts and recap to follow shortly.
