We've played four hands of the bubble, and we're still holding strong at 65 players.
In the most significant action we've seen so far, Jake Cody opened the last pot to 10,500, and Shawn Buchanan flatted in the cutoff. The two of them have been firing back and forth at each other lately, but Freddy Deeb snuck into the pot with a reraise to 43,500 total. That folded Cody without incident, but Buchanan wasn't going anywhere. He asked Deeb how much he had behind -- about 270,000 -- then announced an all-in shove for 184,000 total. Now it was Deeb's turn in the tank, and he made Buchanan squirm for quite a long while.
"I didn't scare you when I said I had you covered?" he asked at one point.
About a minute later, he spoke up again. "All right. I'll let you live. Go ahead, take it." And with that, Deeb mucked.
On to the fifth hand!
