Matt Pray Earns a Rare Nonuple Up
The money bubble broke just before the break, and a seat is open on Matt Pray's table, from a player who busted the bubble.
Pray, on the button for the first post-break hand, has just 700 chips left after paying his 300 ante. Even the small blind is 1,000.
Frank Stumpf is in late position with 10,800, a short stack, though considerably more than Pray.

Matt Pray - 6,500
Frank Stumpf - 20,200
Eric Pharr - 17,000
