Blanchard Bubbles While Roberts Doubles

Blanchard Bubbles While Roberts Doubles

Level 15: 4,000/8,000 (8,000)
Entries: 55/401

Two players had their stacks committed during the first hand of hand-for-hand play on the money bubble in the Seniors Event.

First, it was Lisa Roberts, at risk. John Kelly jammed the flop with more than 100,000 in the pot and Roberts called. After the other tables were finished with their action the cards were flipped over with Roberts in amazing shape.

Kelly bricked both the turn and river and Roberts found a double.

However, the fate for John Blanchard was different as he had crumbs in his stack when he called off from the big blind after Michael Farrelly opened from middle position.

Michael Farrelly:

Blanchard pulled out ahead on the flop and was still ahead on the turn. However, the table shared their condolences with Blanchard after he hit the rail on the money bubble when Farrelly won the hand with a better two pair once the completed the board on the river.
