The field is down to 17 players; the money bubble has burst. The hand that burst the bubble occurred on the last hand before break when two relatively short stacks played the decisive hand. The action was opened with an all in from Pierre Bergeron for roughly 40K. The action folded to Shawn Daigle, in the big blind, who was playing a stack of slightly more than 50K. This put Daigle in a tough spot, but he eventually made the call. The flop fell , and the players made their discards so hands could be tabled. It was for Bergeron who had a comfortable lead over Daigle’s with top-top. But the runout- -provided Daigle a straight that allowed him to collect a bounty and put everyone in the money.
Daniel Pepin went from having a healthy stack to taking the chip lead thanks to a huge pot he won off former chip leader Jonathan Marrie. Pepin had flopped top set against Marrie’s combo (open-ended straight and flush) draw, which quickly led to all the chips going in the middle. The turn gave Marrie the nut straight, but Pepin rivered quads!
