Photos As Final Seven Neared the Money Bubble
Level 18: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
In Hand #68, Daniel Negreanu (foreground, right) four-bets all in with QQ, and winds up racing against the AK of Erik Seidel (foreground, left). The board comes J6629, and Negreanu wins the pot with his pocket queens to double up in chips.
In Hand #81, Randy Dorfman (foreground, left) limp-shoved all in from middle position against Erik Seidel (center left). Dorfman turned over 88, but he'd need to improve against Seidel's JJ. The board came 944JQ, and Seidel won the pot with a full house (jacks full of fours) to eliminate Dorfman in seventh place.
With six players remaining and only five getting paid, the $100,000 buy-in WPT Super High Roller began the biggest money bubble in WPT history. One player would go home empty handed, while the other five would be guaranteed at least $224,160.
In Hand #99, Vivek Rajkumar (not pictured) raises to 75,000, Daniel Negreanu (left) reraises from the button to 205,000, and Erick Lindgren (right) four-bets from the big blind to 600,000.
Rajkumar folds, and Negreanu thinks for a while and tells Lindgren, "Somehow you're gonna end up with a seven-high straight." Negreanu folds, and Lindgren takes the pot.
