It's time for the bubble in Event 15: $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better. Michael Binger was just eliminated in 26th place. The last of his chips were claimed by Alexander Krapivinsky and John Monnette. Krapivinsky made trip nines to win the high portion of the pot while Monnette made an eight perfect for the low. Binger mucked his hand and was quickly out the door.
There are now 25 players left and the tournament is playing hand-for-hand. The next player eliminated will go home with no cash while the remaining 24 players will earn at least $9,675.
