As expected with such a large portion of the prize-pool reserved for Bounties, the action is heating up here in Event 30, and a few players have already tossed in their Bounty chips at one point or another.
We recently witnessed Sebastien Leboeuf get crippled by Obaidullah Habibi after the two went to war on a flop. Sebastien was holding top-two with and was in bad shape versus his opponent’s set of . With the turn and river, Sebastien saw most of his chips slide across the felt to Obaidullah. With only around 7,000 left, it was no surprise to see multi-way pots happen every time Sebastien was involved in the pot.

The runout ( turn and river) was safe for Sean, who earned the pot and his first $500 Bounty chip of the evening.
