Corey Bierria stacks up his bubble chips

Unlike Flight A, the bubble process would be pretty snappy in Flight B. It took ten hands to burst the bubble yesterday but only one today.

Andrew Kaplan opened in early position and Corey Bierria three-bet to 43,000 from middle position. The rest of the table folded, Kaplan put in a fourth bet to 120,000 and Bierria called. The flop came QdJhJc, Kaplan announced all in for 144,000 and Bierria quickly called.

“(Expletive redacted)” from Kaplan.

Bierria: QsQc
Kaplan: AdKc

Bierria flopped a full house, queens full of jacks, and Kaplan needed running aces to miss the bubble. The 7h turn left him drawing dead to the Ah river and the field was in the money.
