Charania Scores Big Double Near the Bubble

We just saw a tangle between two notable big stacks near the money bubble that has seen two time WPT Champion Mohsin Charania catapult into one of the chip leaders. Charania was heads up with former WSOP Colossus winner Cord Garcia, on a board reading [Qd][10d][5s][Kh].

Garcia was first to act, and he moved all in, having Charania covered. It was a massive bet of 740,000 effective, more that double what was in the middle already. Charania thought for about a minute before calling with [Kc][Qc], and he would have some outs to fade, as Garcia rolled over [7d][4d] for a flush draw.

The river was red, but it was the [3h], and Charania scored a massive double up to nearly 1.8 million, while Garcia is still doing ok with over 400,000.

Just One Table From the Money Now

The clock says 134 players remaining, meaning that we are one table worth of eliminations from making the money, as only the top 125 will be locking up the $980 min cash. Once the bubble has burst, we will grab another round of notable chip counts for you guys.
