Matthew Wakeman Bubbles the 2018 Aussie Millions Main Event
Matthew Wakeman's raise from under the gun was called by Toby Lewis on the button and Harry Demetriou in the big blind. The flop fell and action checked to Lewis, who bet 12,000. Demetriou raised to 30,000 and Wakeman check-shoved for his last 107,000. Lewis called and Demetriou was about to turn over his cards for a showdown, willing to call the shove of Lewis, who had left himself 53,000 behind instead of moving all in. Demetriou called and checked the on the turn, prompting Lewis to move all in.
"You probably have it but I cannot fold," Demetriou said and called to put two players at risk.
Matthew Wakeman: - for a set of jacks
Toby Lewis: - for the nut flush
Harry Demetriou: for a queen-high straight
Demetriou could not win the pot anymore while Wakeman still had outs. However, the river was none of them and that let the bubble burst. One hand was still going on on another table but no further elimination emerged, thus dubbing Wakeman as the bubble boy and ensuring a min-cash of A$15,000 for all remaining 88 players without hand-for-hand mode even getting underway.
