The action was three ways and Tauan Naves was committed to the pot for the last of his dwinding stack, while both Justin Bonomo and Dan Shak had called. A full board of was out and a small side pot had been established, but Bonomo and Shak made it to showdown and the players were ready to flip over their hands.
Bonomo had the rivered pair of tens to take the pot and eliminate Naves in 21st place. The bubble has now burst and the remaining 20 players are all guaranteed at least $43,050.
Alex Kulev opened to 100,000 and action folded around to short-stacked Steve O'Dwyer, who tank-min-raised to 150,000 and left himself with 50,000 behind. When it got back to Kulev, he moved all in and O'Dwyer called.
"Good luck," Kulev said as with his previous all-ins.
"Thank you," O'Dwyer replied with a smile, despite some chatter about it being an unlucky seat. "I'm still here, ain't I?"
O'Dwyer was a favorite going in with his superior kicker and things were looking good when the flop came . The on the turn brought chop-outs for Kulev, but then the on the river was a knife in the gut as it gave Kulev two pair.
Kulev was pushed the pot as O'Dwyer made his exit, two places off of the money. The remaining members of the table then concurred that it was, in fact, an unlucky seat.
On a completed board of , the pot was around 500,000 when Brandon Wilson bet 40,000.
His opponent, Steve O'Dwyer, shook his head and called. Wilson then tabled for trip kings while O'Dwyer flashed before sending them into the muck.
"I guess it's not a lucky seat after all," he muttered.
O'Dwyer was left with only 150,000 after that and moved all in from under the gun the very next hand, but he got a walk and took down the blinds.
The hand after that, Wilson shoved from the button and after using a time bank, Dan Smith called from the small blind, putting himself at risk. O'Dwyer also used a time bank to contemplate his decision but eventually elected to fold and the two hands were tabled.
Wilson was ahead with his pocket pair, but the runout of gave Smith the win with his pair of kings and he was able to score a double up.
On a heads-up turn board of , Mike Watson was first to act and he decided to check it over to Timothy Adams, who bet 195,000.
After some thought, Watson made the call and the two aw the appear on the river.
Watson checked again, and after using a time bank, Adams scooted approximately 600,000 into the middle, which left him with a single 5,000 chip behind. Faced with this maneuver, Watson promptly folded and the pot was awarded to Adams.
