Level 15: 3,000/6,000/1,000
Entries: 90

The bubble has burst in the Thrilla, and Brent Harrington was the first to go with 13 players remaining. He moved all in from middle position for his remaining 30,000 and was called by Jason Somerville in the big blind. 

Somerville: [ts8d]
Harrington: [ksjh]

The flop came [9s6h5h], keeping Harrington in the lead with king-high, but giving Somerville some more outs, picking up a straight draw. The turn was the [4s], but the river was the [th] and Somerville made a pair of ten so bust Harrington in 13th place.

On the bubble, just a few hands later, Deb Swift was all in on the button for 31,000, jamming all in over Steve Nedius' open under the gun. Nedius wasted no time in calling, revealing a classic race. 

Nedius: [acqc]
Swift: [jdjc]

The flop came [qd4d2d] and Nedius took the lead with a pair of queens, but Swift still had hope if a jack or a diamond came. The turn was the [kc] and the river was the [4c], sending Swift home on the bubble. She left with two bounties and a smile, nonetheless.
