Asher Conniff (Brooklyn, NY) - 580,000
During hand for hand bubble play, Asher Conniff knocks out Maruti Yarlapati (Pinebrook, NJ). Maruti dwindled down to 50,000 and shipped with wired tens. Asher snapped with AK.
Board fell 6-9-6-4 followed by a King on the river, handing Asher the pot and the knock-out.
Everyone thought Maruto was the bubble, but after an accurate count he was not and play continued for the remaining 101.
The big hand of the day for the Brooklyn Baller was when his pocket 5's reached a straight vs. Opponent's A-J (after flopping an ace).
