$2500 + $200 Championship NLH
The 63 remaining players are on a 15 minute break and just nine spots from the money. On the final hand of the level Mike Borovetz (Pittsburgh, PA) and Cameron Cornell (Burlington, VT) see a flop of Q♣ 8♦ 5♦.
Cornell checks, Borovetz c-bets 17k, Cornell check-raises to 35k.
Borovetz mini-tanks and asks if Cornell will show his hand which he agrees to do. Borovetz folds and says he had pocket jacks and glad to see Cornell show pocket 8s for a set.
Bortovetz and Cornell are both hanging on as the bubble looms.
