Money Bubble Bursts Deep into Night as 1,084 Move on from Day 3

Patrick Lavecchia

For the first time in the 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event, all of the players still alive in the tournament gathered under one roof on Day 3. There were 2,572 left, and while it took about 14 hours, the money bubble finally burst a little after 1 a.m. local time.

When hand-for-hand play began an hour into the extra level, four different tables saw all-in pots right away. The first two at-risk players, including 2005 WSOP Main Event third-place finisher Tex Barch, found themselves in dominant positions when the cards were tabled and survived.

Roger Campbell, however, got in a raising war on a three-heart flop with ace-king with the ace of hearts. He was all in against Kenny Shih, who flopped a queen-high flush. No further hearts emerged from the deck, leaving Campbell eliminated shy of the money.

At another table, Quan Zhou and Davidi Kitai played a three-bet pot with the Belgian bracelet winner holding kings and making kings full on the river. Zhou tried an all-in overbet bluff on the river with ace-high after missing his gutshot straight draw and got snap-called. With Kitai covering him, that meant Zhou was out on the bubble as well and the remaining players were in the money.

Of course, that set off a raucous celebration that featured plenty of beer and shots going down gullets at tables throughout the Rio. However, there was still the matter of the free seat into next year's WSOP Main Event to settle. Zhou won the flip over Campbell to claim the seat, and everyone else bagged up their chips.

Flip for a Seat

That means 1,084 will come back in the money. Foremost among them in terms of chip stack is Patrick Lavecchia, who bagged 1,552,000. He's followed by Pawel Brzeski (1,546,000), former WSOP Main Event final tablist Antoine Saout (1,529,000), Jeremiah Fitzpatrick (1,523,000), Derek Bowers (1,376,000).

Brzewski said he was happy to bag in second, but he isn't looking too far ahead.

"Of course it feels nice to be second in chips, but we still have more than 1,000 people left, so it doesn't mean much," he said. "But I guess more chips is more life in tournaments. I can lose some flips and still be alive, so that's always nice."

Another player bagging a pile was Mickey Craft. The Wilmington, N.C., native finished with 1,345,000. He said he started with a nice stack and a lot of shorter stacks around him and was able to bully the tight group of opponents to keep building.

However, the fun for him really started when he got moved to Brasilia. There, he sat at a deeper-stacked table with experienced players like Liv Boeree. Instead of looking at it as a challenge, Craft saw it as a fun opportunity to play some more interesting poker.

"This room has been such a blast, people were more fun here," he said after bagging. "They were talkative, plus they had a lot of chips. It was so much more fun. That was a grind, and this was fun."

Mickey Craft

Craft was able to continue chipping up from about 850,000 to north of 1.3 million. He attributed that in part to having more fun with his new tablemates.

"I like to have fun when I play poker, and I feel like I do better when I'm having fun," Craft said. "The money does mean something. Anyone who says it doesn't is crazy. But, the fun in poker means more than anything money can ever buy."

"Of course, there's way better players than me. There's no doubt. If I get to the final table and there's Daniel Negreanu over here, Jesus Ferguson over here, and whats-her-face over there... I'm going to be the one with the beer in my hand."

Among the players busting before the money bubble were Brian Rast, Cary Katz, Mike Matusow, Sam Greenwood, Adrian Mateos, Jason Mercier and former Main Event champs Joe Hachem, Johnny Chan, Greg Raymer and Tom McEvoy.

The remaining players will come back with just over one hour on the clock in Level 16 (3,000/6,000/1,000). They'll get going early again at 11 a.m., so come back to PokerNews then for more Main Event coverage.

Quan Zhou Bubbles the 2017 WSOP Main Event, Gets $10,000 Seat for 2018 WSOP

Quan Zhou

Davidi Kitai, three-time bracelet winner and a regular on the European (High Roller) poker circuit, opened under the gun for 14,000 with blinds at 3,000 and 6,000. Quan Zhou, a Chinese high stakes regular who frequents the games in Europe as well, three-bet to 32,000 two spots down the table. Action folded back around to Kitai and he called.

The flop came     and Kitai carefully tapped the table to indicate a check. Zhou checked behind rather quickly.

The   hit the turn and Kitai bet 27,000. Without giving himself much time to think, Zhou raised to 70,000. Kitai called.

As the   completed the board, Kitai checked. Zhou shoved all in for 376,000 and Kitai instantly called, and showed his    for the rivered full house. Zhou tabled    for the failed bluff.

Both their hands were quickly turned over again by the dealer as there were more all ins to wait for. After three more all in and calls had been played out (in two the short stacks won, in the third the short stack lost), it was finally time for the moment to show the cards to the public. Tournament Director Jack Effel came over and asked the two players to reveal their hands. Kitai was first and showed his full house. Zhou casually threw open his failed bluff and waved to the crowd, while players began celebrating the fact they had just cashed.

Quan Zhou and Roger Campbell played a single hand to determine who finished in 1,086th and 1,085th, a hand won by Zhou. With that win, Zhou officially finished in 1,085th place, earning himself a ticket for the 2018 WSOP, worth $10,000.

Roger Campbell Busts on the Bubble, Last to Leave Empty-Handed

Roger Campbell

On the bubble two away from the money, Kenny Shih raised to 15,000 in early position and Roger Campbell called in the big blind. The flop came    , and Campbell bet out 15,000. Shih raised to 65,000 and then Campbell moved all in for 225,000. Shih called and Campbell was at risk.

Action was paused and the players kept their cards face down. There were four all-in and calls.

In the first two hands, the shorter stack doubled up, and it was time for Campbell's and Shih's hands to be revealed.

Campbell had    for the nut flush draw against Shih's    for a flush. Campbell needed a heart to stay alive in the tournament, but he didn't find it on the   turn or the   river.

Campbell finished in 1086th place with one more all-in and call yet to show down.

Four All Ins -- First Two Survive

There were four "all in and a call" situations at four separate tables in the first hand on the money bubble.

Hand 1

Dario Sammartino raised from late position and Tex Barch moved all in for 23,000 from the cutoff, which Sammartino called. Once all other tables were finished, it was the first showdown to go ahead.

Tex Barch:   
Dario Sammartino:   

The board ran out       and Barch doubled with a flush, triggering boo's on the tables nearby.

Hand 2

The flop showed     and Faraz Jaka had Jason Funke at risk of elimination. The cards were turned over and Funke in the big blind only had to fear running cards.

Jason Funke:   
Faraz Jaka:   

Funke locked up the double on the   turn, making the   river a formality.

Saout Shows Seiver the Bluff as Bubble Approaches

Antoine Saout

With the board reading         and more than 130,000 in the pot, Scott Seiver checked from the big blind and Antoine Saout bet 63,000 in early position.

Seiver went into the tank, and the tournament director announced that all dealers were to stand up after their current hand was complete so they could start hand-for-hand play. Seiver stayed in the tank for several minutes and then said, "This is so weird!"

He thought for a couple more minutes, and then he flicked his cards into the muck and pounded the table to tell Saout "Good hand."

Saout showed    for jack-high and Seiver nodded his head. Several seconds later, Seiver told Saout he was planning on calling the river before Saout bet.

David Ormsby Backs Into it With Seven-Deuce

On a board reading      , with about 70,000 in the pot, the player in the big blind checked.

David Ormsby was in the hijack and bet 40,000. The big blind tanked for about three minutes and eventually called.

Ormsby tabled    for a straight to the jack and his opponent sat there with a stunned look on his face for a few seconds before mucking his cards.

Roman Voitovs Really, Really Doesn't Want to Bubble

According to the table, Roman Voitovs tanked for "ten minutes" as the money bubble was approaching. It wasn't that he didn't have a decision, it was that he didn't want to bubble with pocket aces.

He ended up getting all in and at risk on the flop against an open-ended straight draw. He held and was very relieved. Once the hand played out, the table agreed that it was understandable why he waited so long.

While he was scooping in the pot, the floor announced that hand-for-hand play has officially begun.

Ruijs Scoops Two Three-Bet Pots

Evandro Guimaraes raised to 12,000 and Joris Ruijs three-bet to 31,000 from two seats over, which Guimaraes called. The flop came     and Guimaraes checked, Ruijs bet and won the pot.

One hand later, Guimaraes made it 13,000 to go and Ruijs three-bet again, this time to 36,000. Guimaraes called and the duo checked the     flop and the   turn. There was no betting action on the   river either and Guimaraes flashed his cards, then mucked when Ruijs turned over his    for a pair of queens.

Retteinmaier Gives Up

From middle position, Marvin Rettenmaier opened to 15,000. The cutoff three-bet to 40,000 and Rettenmaier called.
