3 All-ins and in the $$

There are all-ins at three separate tables at the same time here during hand-for-hand play. Two of the tables play it out and the short stack survives, so we move over to table 3 and Rachael Wintterle all in for her tournament life against the player on the button, and the button player has Wintterle covered by just one BB.

Button - 55
Wintterle - KK

"It's all over," announces a player at the table when the J-7-5 flop comes out, giving the button a set. The board runs out 7-7 and the dealer starts to send the chips over the the button and a few players think the bubble burst, while others - including Wintterle and the dealer realize the runner-runner 7's gives her a bigger full house.

The button is left with that single BB, is all in dark on the next hand and is eliminated, ending hand-for-hand play as players head out on a 10-minute break.

Rachael Wintterle - 163,000
