There were three all-in and calls in the first three hands. On Hand #1, Scott Wright doubled through Matt Stout. On Hand #2, Stout doubled through Brian Altman. On Hand #3, Altman was eliminated on the bubble.
The fateful hand that sent the final eight into the money saw Jerry Wong open the cutoff and Altman shove the button for about 25,000. Wong called and Altman was at risk.
Wong hit the straight and busted Altman on the bubble.
Jerry Wong – 220,000 (27 bb)
Brian Altman – Eliminated
1st: $75,480 + Gold Ring
