Sameer Rattonsey is the money bubble

Sameer Rattonsey
Sameer Rattonsey

It took close to an hour to bust the money bubble. And it was Rattonsey who fell prey. After getting the money in with {6-Hearts}{6-Spades}, Rattonsey looked comfortably ahead against Husain Lakda's {5-Hearts}{5-Spades}. Lakda had moved all in with 85000 from the cutoff which was called by Rattonsey from the big blind.

The flop came down to {4-Clubs}{3-Spades}{5-Hearts} which fortuitously gave Lakda a set of fives outrunning Rattonsey to the turn {a-Hearts} and river {j-Spades}. Rattonsey exists the 25k Big Game as the money bubble.

Ashutosh Naik out in 8th

[user204797] • Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

From the small blind Naik moved all in with his stack of 30000 which was called by Shravan Chhabria who made the call just enough by covering him.

Naik: {q-Hearts}{5-Clubs}
Chhabria: {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}

The board {3-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} did not connect for Naik who gets eliminated in 8th place.

Double knockouts on the final table

[user204797] • Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 400 ante

Praz Correa who got crippled in the previous hand when his {3-Spades}{3-Hearts} ran into Sameer Rattonsey's {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds} now shoved his short stack of 12700 in the middle from utg. He got called by Dilip Kamath and Kanishka Kapoor to see a flop of {a-Spades}{9-Clubs}{j-Spades}. Kamath to act moved all in with 33000 and got a snap call by Kapoor.

Correa tabled {a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} v. Kamath {a-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} v. Kapoor {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}. All players had hit the flop with Kapoor leading with his set of jacks. The turn {5-Diamonds} and river {2-Hearts} did not better either hands which resulted in a double elimination by Kapoor. Correa takes 10th place and Kamath takes 9th place.
