The bubble has burst on the 6-Max 50/50 Bounty, thanks to a double bustout. Given the format-50/50 bounty-and the money involved-$200-the money bubble wasn’t a big deal to the players in the field. The players were focused on the huge hand that played out between two of the biggest stacks in play.
Cristian Muset and Philippe Drouin, each playing stacks of more than 300K, got all their chips in the middle before the flop, and the run out still has the other players talking about it. Muset made a huge three-bet shove with over Drouin’s opening raise. To everyone’s surprise, Drouin made the call and tabled . When Drouin flopped top set on the flop, it looked like it was over. But the turn gave Muset some hope, and the river gave him (second) the nuts.
Hand-for-hand play began shortly after the huge pot between Muset and Drouin. But it didn’t last long. There were two players on different tables all in and at risk on the first hand dealt after the hand-for-hand announcement. Both short stacks lost their respective pots, leading to a double bustout on the bubble.
Play continues with 17 players remaining. Expect things to tighten up from here, as the $4,162 prize up top takes the focus away from the $100 bounty chips.
