Jordon Takes a Chance, Avoids Bubbling

• Nível 15: Blinds 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante
Terry Jordon

During hand-for-hand play on the stone money bubble, Gabriel Nedelcu open-jammed a big stack from the cutoff. Terence Jordon called from the small blind with the effective stack of 154,000.

"I have ace-ten," Jordan said to the shock of those at and around the table. "I know I'm in front of him."

Jordan, who sat beneath a Panama hat and had a small wooden alligator atop his cards, asked Nedelcu what he had. The opponent admitted that he hadn't looked at his cards.

"Do you have an ace?" the Brit inquired.

"No it's a four," Nedelcu said as he peeked at one card.

As the other all-in hands played out across the tournament room, Jordon called a friend and described his bubble predicament through the phone.

"I know it's a fold," he shrugged. "I'm not here to win 8,000 pounds."

Terence Jordon: {a-Spades}{10-Diamonds}
Gabriel Nedelcu: {9-Clubs}{4-Hearts}

Jordon was indeed ahead but a nine in the window on the flop of {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} gave his opponent the lead.

"There's a nine," Jordon said into his phone.

The {6-Clubs} on the turn didn't change things but the {10-Hearts} on the river saved Jordon from bubbling, though it took him a moment to realize it.

"Oh, it's a ten!" he cheered.

"Was that you, Terry?!" a friend asked after the action.

"I took a chance," Jordon said. "I knew he was light."
