The pressure of being on the final table bubble in Event 67 hasn’t slowed down play with 11 players left. Georgios Karakousis and Omar Zazay both shoved and managed to hang on to fight another day.

Zazay moved all-in for 575,000 under the gun with JJ♠ and Tanveer Dhanjal re-shoved in the small blind with 77♠. Bob Bounahra folded his big blind and Zazay was at risk. The K♣85♣ flop was good for Zazay but the 6♣ turn gave Dhanjal maximum outs. Needing to fade on the river, Zazay did when the 2♠ hit and doubled up. Dhanjal drops to 1,400,000.

On the other table, Karakousis out-muscled Jamie Rosen in a battle of the two biggest stacks in the room. Rosen opened and Karakousis three-bet to 220,000. Rosen four-bet to 550,000 and Karakousis then moved all-in for 2,700,000 total. Rosen was frustrated by the raise and open-folded A♣Q. He falls to 3,000,000 and Karakousis is the new leader with 3,650,000.
