Event #38: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Weisner Puts on the Pressure as the Bubble Bursts

• Nivel 12: 600-1,200, 200 ante

On the final hand before the bubble burst, we caught up with a hand involving Melanie Weisner and one opponent. On a flop reading {10-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{7-Spades}, Weisner check-called a bet of 3,500 from her opponent. Both players checked when the {6-Hearts} came on the turn. However, the drama started when the {2-Clubs} completed the board.

Weisner checked, prompting a 6,400 bet from her opponent, who had about 17,000 behind. Weisner tanked for a bit, but then announced she was all in, sending her opponent up out of his chair.

"We're still on the bubble?" he asked. The tournament director said he couldn't answer.

He then fell hard into the tank until eventually the clock was called on him.

"I usually trust my instinct, but I have no idea what to do here," he said, sitting back down.

Eventually he reached the 10 second countdown and failed to declare or make an action. His hand was announced dead.

Weisner then tabled {Q-Spades}{K-Hearts} for just king-high and her opponent shot up out of his chair and headed for the door, obviously disgusted at what he saw.

Weisner cracked a wry smile and stacked her chips, which are up to 87,000. And her smile became even wider, because over on table 373, the bubble did indeed burst - we're now officially in the money!
