After folding for almost two hours, Marco Traniello was forced all in for his last 2,000 when his blind came around for less than the (3,000) big blind. Dimitar Danchev called from the cutoff and Mark Herm completed from the small blind.
Both Herm and Danchev checked down the flop (), turn (), and the river (). but the action was forced to halt before cards were turned over because adjacent tables still had action. At the next table over, Ted Lawson was not aware that this was occurring, because he sat with action on his hand until he chirped up and asked the floor why the hands hadn't been tabled yet. When he learned that they would be shown once action was completed at all tables, he finally decided to fold his hand. A moment later, the hand at his table came to a close and the hands were tabled.
Traniello showed for trip nines, but both of his opponents had a spade for the flush. Herm showed but was bested by Danchev's . Danchev scooped the pot, Traniello became the bubble boy, and the entire field went on break.
They will return in twenty minutes and do a full re-draw for the final three tables.
