Ben Zamani

After four hands on the bubble, a short-stacked player open-shoved for 44,500 from the cutoff and Carey Pickus reshoved for 109,000 from the button. Ben Zamani moved all in from the small blind for a similar stack and the big blind released.

Cutoff: As9s
Pickus: QdQc
Zamani; KsKc

Zamani, the former WPT Player of the Year, was looking good with the kings and the dealer spread the clean ThTc8s3h7c board for the hand to hold. The short-stack player was eliminated on the bubble and they counted down the stacks for Pickus and Zamani. He had 107,500 and Pickus stayed in the game, in the money, with 1,500 (good for three antes).

Tournament staff redrew seats for the last three tables and they are back in action.
