The High Roller field is officially on the bubble as Chris Hunichen won the largest pot of the tournament to bust Stefan Schillhabel two places short of the money in a huge flip.
Schillhabel opened for 20,000 in the hijack and Paul Volpe called one seat over. Action folded to Hunichen in the big blind and he shoved for about 600,000. Schillhabel called for roughly 360,000 and Volpe got out of the way. Schillhabel’s J♣J♦ led the A♣K♣ of Hunichen heading to the flop.
The 10♣6♠3♣ flop gave Hunichen a draw to the nut flush draw and the 8♦ turn left him needing to hit on the river. Luckily for Hunichen, the K♦ came on the river to give him the pot and the knockout. He now sits behind 1,200,000.
The field is officially on the money bubble with $21,459 on the line.
