Nasty Turn Makes Hinrichsen Our Bubble Boy

It didn't take too long for the bubble to bust and came in brutal fashion. It happened when Rob Angood opened for 12,100 from early position and cleared the field all the way around to Andrew Hinrichsen, who moved all in for 81,000 from the big blind. Angood made the call and was dominated.

Showdown
Angood: {4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}
Hinrichsen: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}

The {5-Spades}{3-Hearts}{7-Spades} flop was somewhat dangerous as it did give Angood a straight draw, but it would be the {4-Spades} turn that would thrust him into the lead. Just like that, Hinrichsen went from a dominating favorite to being on the brink of elimination on the bubble. The dealer burned and slowly revealed the {5-Diamonds} on the river.

Hinrichsen took a brutal beat at a crucial time in the tournament to finish as the bubble boy, thus securing a guaranteed payday of at least $3,000 for the remaining 81 players.
