The young Englishman Ben Vinson is our bubble boy under very unfortunate circumstances. Ben Wilinofsky raises to 10,000 in first position and it folds around to Vinson in the big blind who make a three-bet. Back to Wilinofsky and he puts Vinson all-in and he makes the call. Vinson turns over A K but the dealer makes him turn his card face down again while he calls the TD.
"What do you have?" Vinson asks.
"I have a king in my hand so you are good," says Wilinofsky
Vinsons facial expression changes for the better as the pressure of the bubble was starting to show.
Wilinofsky turns over K 7 and Vinson is in very good shape.
Flop: Q T 7
A seven on the flop puts Wilinofsky ahead and to his credit Vinson, who must be devasted inside, doesn't flinch.
Wilinofsky is still ahead.
"Good luck," says Vinson
Nobody else realises that they have made the money because they have all taken a 10-minute break!
