Two Hands to Burst the Money Bubble
On a board reading , Steve Merrifield bets 25,000 in the small blind, the player in the big blind raises to 50,000, Merrifield shoves all in, and his opponent calls.
Opponent: (two pair)
The on the river is safe for Merrifield awarding him a huge pot, and his opponent is left short with less than ten big blinds.
Steve Merrifield - 361,000
Dustin Murphy raises to 11,000 in middle position. Action folds to the player on the button (the same player that lost the previous hand) who shoves all in for 40,000. Murphy quickly calls.
The board runs out , awarding Murphy the pot and sending his opponent to the rail. The player gets up from his seat and the floor makes an announcement that all remaining players are now officially in the money.
Dustin Murphy - 220,000
