Dan O'Brien was short and got his remaining stack in the middle with [ac9d]. Jason Somerville had no problems calling, tabling [kdjh]. O'Brien referred to Somerville's hand as "junk", but was silenced when the flop came [jctd7c]. The turn was the [th] and the river was the [ks], sending O'Brien to the rail and the $500 bounty to Somerville. 

"It's been an absolute pleasure", said O'Brien as he stood up from the table. "I get paid for busting out Dan O'Brien! Wow. What an experience", exclaimed Somerville with a giant smile on his face. "I won't be back again", said O'Brien as he left the table. The entire table laughed, and Somerville got to enjoy his second bounty of the tournament. 

As Somerville raked in the pot he laughed and said, "It's confirmed. I am now officially better than Dan O'Brien."

Somerville now leads the field with 285,000 chips. Steve Nedius isn't far behind, sitting on about 260,000.
